Hornafjörður Art Museum opened at a ceremony on Friday, June 24, 2011. The museum is located at City Hall Hornafjörður in an old fire station and the opening exhibition was the works of Svavars Guðnason which his widow Ásta Eiríksdóttr donated generously.
About 250 works are now owned by the municipality and its agencies in addition Svavars works by more painters from Hornafjörður such as Bjarni Guðmundsson, Höskuldur Björnsson, Jón Þorleifsson, Rafn Eiríksson and Bjarni Henriksson. As well as the hall in an old fire station we have works on display in many of the municipal agencies for example, schools, nursing home, town hall, library etc.
The Museum shows various exhibitions throughout the year, but in the summer the works of Svavars Guðnason are on display.
