With enthusiasm, creativity and a solid dose of courage, the multi-artist Yvonne Rosten and her husband Magnar Vedal have transformed what was once a bank room into a home, art gallery, ballroom – and an airbnb apartment.
Walking around the building is an experience. There is art, aesthetics and rarities everywhere.
At the same time, Mileperlen is a pearl in itself, where it is located in the middle of an idyllic village, surrounded by mountains, sea and a large sky – which with changing play of colors creates an environment of eternal change.
Gallery, studio and varied courses
In the interior of Mileperlen you can visit Gallery M, with exhibition rooms and exhibitions, or get active in Studio YR, where you can learn to paint, draw, work with sculpture or wood.
Everyone is taught based on their prerequisites, so here you can be both a beginner and seasoned. Courses are arranged throughout the year. Follow Mileperlen’s pages on the web or Facebook.
There is the possibility of private lessons in painting, as well as private guidance via Teams, Zoom or Facebook. This can be ordered at firstname.lastname@example.org, or tel. 971 76 824.
Gallery M is open on request, as Yvonne unfolds in the various workshops throughout the day. If you want to meet her and attend a course, a guided tour, to buy a print or a painting or a sculpture, it is a good idea to get in touch in advance.
Gullsalen is an exhibition space for Yvonne’s art. In addition, the hall is used for courses in yoga, Thai, qigong and meditation. Here, art, well-being and health are paramount, with skilled instructors.
Hiking, or maybe not?
In addition to the artistic activity, Hemnes is a great starting point for great nature experiences. Those who want to just enjoy fresh air, can find peace on Mileperlen’s beautiful veranda, with beautiful views of the fjord and the mountains.
At the same time, Yvonne is a colorful and bubbly lady, who needs her daily walk with her dogs. She likes to take guests to her favorite places on and around Hemnesberget, by the water, in the woods or in the mountains. Maybe it is possible to book a tailor-made trip, with breakfast / lunch in nature?
In a family, perhaps some would like to go to the mountains, while others would rather spend their time on art? Yvonne knows that not all children are equally excited about hiking. Therefore, she offers the kids to come to Studio YR to have a creative experience and create something unique, so that those who want to enjoy the trip can.
If you want to treat yourself to a different holiday, a weekend full of experiences, learning and creativity, Milerperlen is the natural choice!
