- "But this Baltic business is like holding the mirror up to Canada. Now,
as to the woods, the very trees and wild flowers seem to be absolutely of the same family as ours, so that with the exeption of the language
one might as well be in Canada itself" -
- WILLAM BLAIR. BRUCE. 1900 -
Every year, since 1937, The Brucebo Foundation gives artists the possibility to come live and work at Brucebo. Canadian and Swedish artists have the opportunity to apply for art residency/scholarship.
The scholarships are administered by Concordia University’s Faculty of Fine Art and Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm depending on your nationality. Our artists in residency have the possibility to work and live in their own little cottage located close by the sea and nature. The cottage includes kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, a studio space and last but not least, a fantastic view over the Baltic sea.

We have gathered some practical information about the cottage and the island in a welcome letter so that you can be as prepared as possible before your recidency. Learn more!

Travel scholarship 2017 - Caroline Boileau visiting Gotland.
April 24, 2018
During the month of April, Carolin Boileau visited the anatomical wax collection at La Specola museum in Florence Italy, then traveled to the arctic and northern Norway to spend time at the Steilneset witch memorial in Vardo. During the last two weeks of her trip, she spent a few days in Stockholm visiting historical and art museums as well as doing research at the Royal Library and finally arrived on Gotland to work on drawings, videos and texts based on her travels.
Her watercolors and drawings are now on display at the Brucebo Gallery.
Corri-Lynn Tetz ställer ut Gotlandsverk i Kanada
February 28, 2017
Vår kanadensiska stipendiat från 2016: Corri-Lynn Tetz ställer nu ut i en soloutställning i Montreal. Utställningen "Diviners" innehåller verk från Gotland och Montreal.
The exhibition Diviners, brings together paintings made during a three-month residency on the island of Gotland, Sweden, at the Vermont Studio Center and at home in Montreal. With a focus on fringe spiritual communities and ideas of myth and mystical experience, these works espouse the melancholic ethos of romantic landscape painting, imagining the figure and landscape as an armature for paint exploration and poetic longing. Whether the images were triggered by Gotlands’ creation myth and the islands rocky shoreline, or by photos of women protesting the ominous arrival of D.J.T, Diviners reveals an attachment to transforming found images through the act of painting and an attempt to discard the utopic/idyllic weight of a figure in landscape in favour of more evocative, interior, dreamscapes.
Verket på bilden skänkte Corri-Lynn till Brucebostiftelsen efter sommarens vistelse.
