I already started noticing some cool unique paintings up in the North Cape Center and then in a few places in Honningsvåg so then I wasn't so surprised when I saw the gallery "West of the Moon", but unfortunately it was closed due to covid, so I investigated a bit and found out there was a sister gallery in Kamøyvær so I headed there and found "East of the Sun" which, luckily, although it was closed, the artist, Eva Schmutterer lives close by and could stop by and let me have a look inside. Very cool unique paintings and ways to present them. Don't miss this place, you won't regret it.

While the artist (Eva Schmutterer) spends most of the year at other galleries or her home, she spends a couple of the summer months in this location. The gallery has no regular hours and opens by appointment, mostly to visitors and tourist groups. She also owns a gallery in Honningsvag, which opens regularly, and all year around. Ms. Schmutterer's art is modern and very attractive, with pastel colors and focused on local and regional scenery and fauna. Her colors are warm, her designs, attractive and the entire collection is very pleasant to look at.

We rented a car in Honningsvag, and visited this wonderful art gallery in the quaint village of Kamoyvaer during a day that also included the visitor center in Nordkapp and a boat ride to see puffins. The art gallery was the best part of the day. and one of the highlights of our 14-day cruise. Very easy to find, and meeting Eva, the artist, was a bonus. We ended up buying two reasonably priced prints and other items also. We are glad to have special souvenirs of our pleasurable visit.

This little gallery was a total surprise. Eva's artwork is vibrant and cheerful. They are mostly nature scenes. The colors are amazing. She was there and explained how she created the pieces. It is too hard for me to explain. It was hard to walk away empty handed so we bought a postcard. Then my husband went back in and bought a framed print. It makes me happy just looking at it. It is a great memory of a great trip.

A lovely Gallery . The art work displayed and for sale was unique and memorable . I would have bought more home if I had places to put it . I loved the jewellery as well and I thought the prices very reasonable . You can buy on line as well which is a bonus when you see things abroad . I could have spent ages in here .
