The 29th Annual Norwegian Rosemaling Show and Sale, was held June 21 - 24, 2006

about the Illinois Arts Council

Once again the INRA produced an outstanding show featuring exquisite pieces of Norwegian art. Rosemaling demonstrations were given inside the church. A BarneLekeplass (children's play space) featured rosemaling instruction for children.

INRA members entered their painted items into competition. Competition categories were: Professional, Intermediate, Beginner and Golden Agers. Vesterheim Gold Medalists* Pam Rucinski and Elaine Schmidt judged the competition, and ribbons were awarded to the show winners.
*those who have entered their own painted items into the National Rosemaling Competition held in Decorah, Iowa, and have won a total of 8 points to earn a Gold Medal.

In addition to the competition pieces, rosemaled objects as large as trunks and as small as earrings were beautifully displayed and available for purchase. 100s of rosemaled items were sold. Included in the sale were items painted by beginners through professional painters.

Other Show and Sale features were: the raffle of a rosemaled trunk, Husfliden, and a coffee shop, Kaffekos, where tasty, home-made Norwegian bakery items were enjoyed.
