INTERNATIONAL ART EXHIBITION ⋅ GALLERY REPRESENTATION ⋅ AWARDS
The Arts Dot is a central point of connection between artists, galleries and those who love art. The Arts Dot creates international meetings and collective art exhibitions where you can meet artists and participate in an interactive art experience.
The Arts Dot 2019 was a collective art exhibition in the centre of Karlskrona. The major collective exhibition took place in Wachtmeister Galleria on Borgmästaregatan 3 in Karlskrona. The jury selected several artists for a gallery representation, and visitors voted for the Best Art of the Arts Dot 2019 during the exhibition. Artists selected by the jury, and a winning artist of People’s Choice – Best Art of the Arts Dot 2019, received special recognition and a comprehensive art exhibition at the gallery Konstnären & Pinaulen Björkholmsplan. All artists received a certificate of participation.
The event had a varied program and included art exhibitions, artist talk & conversations, artist conclave, drawing workshop, live painting and The Arts Dot Awards.
