Queen Sonja Art Stable, Oslo, Saturday January 18th, 2020 at 12pm


CITY/REGION: Oslo, Norway
DATE & TIME: January 18th, 12pm
MEETUP PLACE: Nationaltheatret train & subway station

Our traditional January meetup in honor of our German friends midnatsol and Mr midnatsol will be on a Saturday in 2020, as that is the day they will have in Oslo on their travels. :) Normally these have just been regular afternoon meetups but since this is a Saturday, we have decided to be a little more creative ;)

For this meetup we will visit Queen Sonja Art Stable, the former palace stable that was disused for over 70 years until it reopened as the queen's personal museum in honor of her 80th birthday in the summer of 2017. The current exhibition which we will be seeing is called "The Dream of Norway".

"Through photography, art and other objects, the exhibition tells the story of the Danish prince and the English princess who became the new king and queen of an independent Norway in 1905. We follow them up until queen Maud's death in 1938, and we leave king Haakon at the outbreak of war in 1940." Among the items on display are some of the gifts the couple received for the coronation in 1906.

There will be a guided tour at 1pm. This will be in Norwegian. Unfortunately there is no English tour available but there are explanatory brochures with extensive information, these are also available in English.

The stable has a small gift store with, among other things, postcards for sale - some showing relevant things like queen Maud's favorite horse etc, and some showing artworks by queen Sonja, who is an acknowledged artist in her own right.

After the visit to the stable we will head over to Elias Mat og Sånt for dinner. We have a table booked there at 5pm. :) We will stop off a few other places to do some postcard shopping as well. ;)

Of course you are welcome to join us at any time during the day.

KAS: It's your job to promote this on Facebook as usual. :D

It's a given that we will have a meetup card for this ... !! :D It will feature king Haakon and queen Maud's coronation portrait. Price unknown at this point as it depends on how many we order. Please let us know how many cards you want. See below for meetup card design.

I have never been to a meetup before... What exactly will you be doing? ;)
12 isn't the best time for me, as I would normally not be able to get there in time due to yoga class, so I'll have to give it a think.

New person! Yay! :bouncy:

We usually talk about postcards, go shopping for postcards and write postcards and sometimes send postcards :bouncing:There's usually also food involved at some point. Which is what will happen here too, including art! Which usually doesn't happen.

We basically hang out. I love sharing the crazy with others who understand this strange hobby.

You'd be very welcome to join at any time :) Like I said at the BC meetup this afternoon, you can text me during the day, whenever you are able to join, and I can let you know where we are so you can meet up with us there. :)

New to the forum, yes. To Postcrossing, not so much. ;)

Well, talking about Postcrossing is kind of a given. ;)
I find it hard to find nice, not too expensive postcards in Norway, but that I know is not just me. ;)

Cool.

I have to pass this time. I realised it's the same day as the VisiBle meetup.

We have meetups at least once a month so there will be many other chances, hiddeninabook :)

Maybe you could get some tips on where to get postcards ;)

Bummer for us. It's always so fun with new faces at meetups!

Hope to see you some other time, we do have meetups all the time (ok, once a month ++) after all :)
