About LNM

LNM (The National Association of Painters) is the national organisation for professional artists who work with painting practices.

The organisation was established in 1968 to promote the interests of painters and operates under the umbrella of NBK (The Association of Norwegian Visual Artists).

Our gallery is centrally located in Rådhusgata 25b, near Oslo town hall. 7-9 exhibitions are produced yearly based on our open call, reflecting the breadth of Norwegian contemporary painting.

The gallery is supported by Kulturrådet.

LNM has today over 600 members. Complete list of LNM’s members.

Oslo Art District

Oslo Art District is a collaborative initiative between eleven galleries located in the Kvadraturen district of Oslo. This network first started in 2008 under the name Kunstsløyfen, taking advantage of the proximity of the galleries to promote and support one another.

You can also follow Oslo Art District on Facebook.

Events and Artist Presentations

LNM Forum is a series of lectures, artist talks, events and discussions that address different topics relevant to contemporary art and painting in particular. These events are directed at both artists as well as a general audience. LNM Forum sheds light on the material conditions and as well the political issues related to the discipline of painting.

LNM Gallery welcomes schools for a tour of the gallery facilitated by the gallery staff. We encourage those with special interests to contact the gallery directly to make appointments for special events. The tours are dialogue-based and tailored its audiences as needed.


Please contact the gallery for any questions.
