As it happened two of the persons running the gallery, Lars-Erik Svensson and Annika Simonsson had applied to the art academy in Trondheim just like me. During my stay in Halmstad they got a reply that they were accepted for the trial week. After checking with my girlfriend back home I found out that I had no reply yet. This information laid a damper on the opening. But when I returned back home I also got the desired letter.
