The historic dance restaurant Sandgrund has become home to the artist Lars Lerin’s paintings.
The popular artist has received inquiries from many quarters, but took a liking to the Sandgrunds building, which is located in the middle of a cultural strip, close to the center and in a beautiful natural environment. The art gallery is next to the Värmlands Museum and the Sandgrundsparken and here there is a shop with a range of postcards, posters and books that can only be found at the art gallery. There is also a café that is open every day when the art gallery is open and in summer an outdoor terrace with a beautiful view of the Klarälven.
