Galleries and artists in Andøy

Andøy is known for its artists. Many artists settled in Andøy, and truth be told, it isn’t hard to find inspiration in the beauty of the island with the mighty sea lurking, the Northern Lights illuminating the dark skies, the polar nights, the midnight sun. Not to mention the impressive wildlife, with the giants of the ocean, puffins and gannets nearby.
