March 24 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm$20
Share your lunch break with Vesterheim Gold Medalist and rosemaling instructor, Pam Rucinski, joined by Vesterheim Collections Manager Jennifer Kovarik as they highlight the journey and shifts in the painting style of Gudbrandsdal rosemaling. Pam will share some examples from the collection. She will discuss how travel to Norway has influenced the work of contemporary Gudbrandsdal rosemalers. Pam will trace the impact Jakob Klukstad and other master artists, including woodcarvers, have had on rosemaling for over 300 years.
Collection Connections is a series of Vesterheim-hosted conversations between the museum’s collections staff and folk-art school instructors.

Each gathering will highlight pieces from the collection as explained, interpreted, and appreciated by a master folk artist.
