Art and handicraft | Culture in Hvide Sande

Art and Handicraft

You will find artists and craftsmen in almost every town in this area and there are also many galleries and shops that sell art and handicraft. Many potters, jewelists, sculptors, and woodturners have settled here and there are many both permanent and alternating exhibitions in the area. 
Large sculptures and installations can be seen in many roundabouts, at plazas, in front of buildings and at the harbours. Old statues of famous citizens stand next to modern sculptures. Last but not least, you should go and see the sand sculptures which only last the season and are admired and photographed by many people.
