Don Smedman and Lars-Ake Olsson at Galleri Smedman

Gimdalen is hosting a special tribute to the late Rolf Smedman this weekend to celebrate the art and life this well known fly fisher, author,  and artist.  The opening takes place this Sunday, July 18th, at 1:00.  Tributes by friends and family will be made before cutting the ribbon to the galleri which also sports a small theatre where a film about  Smedman’s life will play.   Original paintings in watercolor, pen and ink, as well as oils are displayed on  freshly painted white walls inside a local barn.  The art is beautifully enhanced by the natural light and the rustic atmosphere which fits Smedman’s charming country scenes, many inspired by and  painted in Gimdalen.  Several prints have been made from original watercolors, and are available for sale.  Galleri Smedman will be open during the Gimdalen Culture Week which will hold a variety of events and talks about Rolf Smedman’s contributions to the promotion of outdoor life, fly fishing, and the arts.  For more information: www.gimdalen.se
