A meeting place for artists in a fisherman’s farm
Richard Sagrits was an Estonian painter. His birthplace at Kalame farm in Karepa is open for the summer season and hosts a display of Sagrits’s paintings and temporary art exhibitions.
For centuries, the Kalame farm was the home of a fisherman of the Selja manor until, at the end of the 19th century, the father of the well-known marine artist Richard Sagrits became a tenant of the farm.
The Kalame farm, located on the banks of the river Selja, is an attraction itself. You can see a thatched house from the 19th century, which is typical to North Estonia’s coast. The most unique building on the farm is the 19th-century lampern kitchen, which includes an oven used to cook lampern. It is still in use today and you can see the display of historical fishing equipment there, too.
You can also enjoy the beauty of Alice Sagrits’s rock garden – the garden has been restored as the artist’s wife created it at the time.
