Collection Connections is a series of Vesterheim-hosted conversations between the museum’s collections staff and folk-art school instructors. Highlighting the incredible folk-art collection at Vesterheim, these conversations are also opportunities for you to stay connected with your folk-art community during this unpredictable time. Each gathering will highlight a piece or two from the collection as explained, interpreted, and appreciated by a master folk artist. The online gathering will also include the opportunity for the small group of participants to show and share what you’re working on in the safe way we can – digitally! 

Share your lunch break with Vesterheim Gold Medalist Patti Goke and Vesterheim Collections Manager Jennifer Kovarik as they highlight two trunks from the Vesterheim collection--one by Gunder Salveson Haugland and another by Kverndalen in the Numedal style -- to inspire your painting practice. Then, connect with other rosemalers for a short time to ask questions or share one thing you are working on during this time of staying home.

Supplies: A computer, laptop, or tablet with a camera and mic as well as a fast, reliable internet connection.

Special Instructions: You will receive a link to the Zoom session by email sometime during the week prior to the group meeting.

Enrollment Deadline: September 11, 2020

Registration for this class has closed.
