Competition: Open to Art

The deadline to attend the second edition of Open to Art, the International Competition of Ceramic Art and Design, has been extended to July 29, 2016.


Open to Art
Created and promoted by Officine Saffi, Open to Art confirms its status as a tool for enhancing and promoting the use of ceramics in contemporary art and design. The competition also represents an opportunity for reflecting on the latest developments in visual design and technology. Open to Art is a competition open to artists of any age, without thematic constraints and with the only requirement that ceramic has to be the principal material used in the work. You can compete for a choice of two sections: Art Ceramics or Design Ceramics.


An international jury will assess the works submitted, according to criteria of quality, research, originality and contemporaneity of the artwork

Ceramic Festival in Skælskør

Guldagergaard, Kunstnerlavet KIT, Skælskør City Office, and Gallery Købmandsgården invites all ceramic and art enthusiasts to join us for a day of ceramic celebration in Skælskør.

The very first Ceramic Festival was held in 2015, and it was a tremendous success. More than 5,000 guests visited the festival and it was the most busy day of trade of the entire year.


We have therefore decided to expand the festival, and this year we have invited 60 ceramic artists,set up a ceramic workshop on the harbour, invited artists to work live, and curated 12 different special exhibitions with Nina Hole, Priscilla Mouritzen, Ane-Katrine von Bülow and many many more – we hope you will join.

Symposium: Alice in Wonderland

“But I don’t want to go among mad people,” Alice remarked.
“Oh, you can’t help that,” said the Cat: “we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad.”

– Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

The adventure of Alice in Wonderland has been a great inspiration for Guldagergaard. It is therefore with great pleasure that we invite you to a symposium on Guldagergaard based on the famous and charming adventure.


In the last weekend of the symposium, the work will culminate in an event worthy of the adventure – maybe we’ll even have a tea party, who knows? We only know we are looking forward to see you there!
