The artist duo Bjørg Frøisok Bjøberg and Arthur Adamson have since 2003 owned the house and rebuilt it into a multifunctional house, with exiting exhibitions for Arthur’s and Bjørg’s art.
You’ll find Bjørg’s ‘Golden moments art shop’ with framed reproductions, small pictures, calligraphy and lots of cards, all reproduced from her art work: Souvenirs made in Balestrand by the local watercolour artist.
