A Norwegian Rosemaling Show & Sale
was held June 23 - 26, 2010

Geneva History Center

about the Illinois Arts Council

Highlights from the 2010 INRA Rosemaling Show
A juried Show and Sale of Norwegian Rosemaled items.

This was our second year at the Geneva History Center location and for the first time in several years we had people waiting in line at the door on Wednesday, eager to come in.
One other surprise was the talent of the Beginner category entries to the competition. The entrants were so good in fact, that they were all moved into the Intermediate category. Do not let this scare any of you other beginners out there. You, also, may be a better painter than you imagine!
Judges Ken Magnusson and Judy Kjenstad were generous with their thoughtful and careful analysis of each competition item. Congratulations to all the ribbon winners!
We would like to thank everyone who took part in the show this year. It would not have happened without your help and all the beautiful rosemaling you brought to the show. A special “Thank You” to the Gold Medallists who also sent or brought items. We are always excited to have your participation and hope that it will continue.

Show Chairs: Donna Benson, Bev Gunderson, and Holly Green
