Alexander Clinthorne sent us photos of his work when he was at Old Schoolhouse in Hrísey 2012. His sculpture is based on the creature Lagarfljótsormur (an underwater monster in the lake Lögurinn in Iceland). He is interested in coming back and work with the Hvönn (a herb) which grows in Hrísey.
Many artists have stayed at Old Schoolhouse residency and they all seem to be satisfied.
Alexander Clinthorne stayed at the residency in April 2012. He sent us a nice quote about his stay:
"I think about my Hrisey experience everyday. I have been to 9 residencies around the world and Hrisey is definitely one of my favorites. I hope to make it back someday.
Thank you for creating the program."

Lucy Wilson was 2 months at the residency December 2012 and January 2013. She put up an exhibition and wrote in Icelandic on her webpage.
Amanda Bonaiuto is an American artist that has been working in Hrísey at the Old Schoolhouse residency. She works with animation, soft sculpture and painting.
She studied art at School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and Tufts University.
She putted up an exhbition in Sæborg the weekend 23-24 February.
Lucy Wilson is an artist from London and has been living in Hrísey for two months, over the christmas time. She graduated from Goldsmiths 2012.
Her last weekend in Hrísey, January 26 and 27, she putted up an exhbition in Sæborg.
She uses macro photographics and shadows to inspire the imagination.
She works a lot in black & white and by taking the colours out and zoom into things, it reduces the localisation of the photo.
It has been a good year, 2012.
It has been busy days at the residency the whole year. We had almost fully booked every month, both in the fantastic summertime and the absolutely inspiring wintertime.
In October and November we had chosen artists for a free stay at the residency. After spending time in Hrísey, they put up an exhibition on the island.
There are several places, both in Hrísey and Akureyri, which are available for exhibition.
The year 2013 is almost fully booked and booking for the year 2014 have started.
We want to thank all the artists visiting the residency and are looking forward to have more wonderful artists coming this year.

Fram til þessa hefur Gamli skóli lítið verið kynntur innanlands. Húsið hefur verið auglýst erlendis og fengið góða aðsókn frá ýmsum löndum.
Nú viljum við kynna aðstöðuna fyrir samlöndum okkar og höfum sent út meðfylgjandi tilkynningu til ýmissa félaga og fyrirtækja.
Norðanbál vill hér með vekja athygli á Gamla skóla í Hrísey sem er vinnusetur fyrir listafólk.
Gamli skóli hefur verið starfræktur um árabil, þar hefur listafólk upplifað Hrísey sem tímalausa orkustöð í skemmtilegu samfélagi.
Í Gamla skóla er allt sem þarf til ánægjulegrar dvalar: þrjú aðskilin svefnherbergi, stór vinnustofa, nettenging fyrir alla, stofa/eldhús, sturta, þvottavél, sjónvarp o.fl.
Húsið er að mestu laust í desember og janúar og býðst á sérstaklega góðum kjörum þessa tvo mánuði.
Hrísey er staðsett í miðjum Eyjafirði með fallegu útsýni á fjallahringinn allt í kring.
Að dvelja á fallegri eyju, fjarri öllu amstri og stressi en samt hafa allt til alls og geta án nokkurs fyrirvara skroppið til lands ef með þarf, er einstakt.
Gamli skóli, eins og hann er kallaður, er staðsettur miðsvæðis í þorpinu í u.þ.b. 5 mín. gönguleið frá bryggjunni þar sem ferjan leggst að.
Ferjan Sævar siglir frá Árskógssandi nokkrum sinnum á dag út í eyjuna og tekur siglingin 20 mín. Áætlunarferðir eru með rútu frá Akureyri að ferjunni (sterna.is)

Verð fyrir leigu á aðstöðunni er sem hér segir sumarið 2009:
Ein vika 35.000 kr.
Ein helgi 20.000 kr.
Ein nótt 10.000 kr.
