ROSEMALING (Norwegian Folk Painting)
Contemporary folk artists keep up the traditions of Norwegian Rosemaling, with the same love and care of the old Norwegian artisans from 1775-1875. Gretchen Carew earned a Gold Medal in Rosemaling in the Norwegian Tradition from Vesterheim, Norwegian-American Museum in Decorah, Iowa. If you would like Rosemaling lessons contact Nanette Cosart, 520-326-7060. Nanette has traveled to Norway many times to study with Norwegian painters.
