Lost Horse Gallery
Skolastraeti 1
101 Reykjavík

www.losthorse.is
The Lost Horse Gallery is a new and experimental exhibition space in the center of Reykjavik.
Alexander Zaklynsky and Agnar Agnarsson opened the space in September 2007. The building is over 100 years old and has a varied history. To be in the Lost Horse is like stepping into Old Iceland when transportation was truly Horse Powered. We are a young Gallery catering to the many up and coming artists of Iceland and we encourage all to inquire about possible shows. The Gallery has a well equipped studio space adjoining the main exhibition space which is available for use as well.

The Corridor
Rekagrandi 8
Reykjavik

http://www.helgi-fridjonsson.com/
The Corridor has been running continuously for two decades as an exhibition space in Reykjavík. Since this beginning the exhibition space has moved with the family of the gallery runner, the Artist Helgi Ţorgils Friđjónsson several times, before the present location at Rekagrandi 8.
The Corridor is not a real public gallery in the full sense of the term, but still it must be kept in mind, that even though it does not have a high profile in public life, its influence on Icelandic artlife extends far beyond the confines of the home at Rekagrandi.
The Corridor was to open up a door to art which would not otherwise be seen in Iceland.

Bragginn
Öxafjörður

In Öxarfjörður between Ásbyrgi and Kópasker is Bragginn witch originally was a sheep shelter and has been rebuilt and changed into an exhibition-room and studio for Yst. As Bragginn blooms only once a year, with an exhibition of Fine Art during the first half of July, it is good to know, that the opening hours are from 11 to 18 every day.
