About the gallery and the town:
Run by the gallerist Rune L. who have run the gallery for about 14 years have made this gallery "the" gallery in the small town Vadstena by the big lake Vättern. Its situated in the harbor next to the old castle which was built as a fortress to protect Sweden. It was built in the 1500 by the King Gustav Wasa. Vadstena Castle, one of Sweden’s best-preserved castles from the Wasa period (circ. 1520-1650). The town Vadstena has plenty of well-preserved buildings from the 13th - 16th Century. It is also the home of the Sancta Birgitta Convent Museum, opened 2003 and Vadstena Abbey Church built and later finished in 1348.
