2023-12-03 – Exploring Møre og Romsdal Style Rosemaling (Webinar)



Sunday, December 3 (1:00-2:00 pm CT)


Nancy Odalen


This is an online class hosted on Zoom. 


Come learn about the various examples of rosemaling from the area known as Mǿre og Romsdal Fylke (County) in Western Norway! Join Nancy Odalen, Vesterheim Gold Medalist and a recipient of one of the 2022-2023 Folk Art Residency grants, for a lively discussion about the rosemaling that was created within the county of Mǿre og Romsdal. Odalen will have examples from the Vesterheim Collection and from the museum in Romsdal.

In Nils Ellingsgard book Norwegian Rose Painting in America, he commented, “Romsdal was a center of commerce and trade; as such, it was an intermediary for different cultural impulses.” During this presentation, we will learn about the areas of Nordmǿre, Sunnmǿre, and Romsdal, which are all part of Mǿre og Romsdal, and how their rosemaling was influenced by painters from Hol, Hallingdal, and Gudbrandsdalen, among others.

Odalen is looking forward to sharing her discoveries as she studied this area of rosemaling. Join us as we are inspired together!



Students will need to provide a computer, laptop, or tablet with a camera and mic as well as a fast, reliable internet connection.
