Join us beginning Saturday, June 5, for a virtual visit with Duluth-based artist and educator Alison Aune! An American artist inspired by her Scandinavian roots and a professor in the University of MN Duluth Department of Art and Design, Dr. Aune has been interested in the role of pattern in traditional northern cultures for many years. In her work, traditional abstract Scandinavian motifs often appear alongside painted versions of medieval textiles and realist depictions of the natural forms – plants, flowers, and faces – that were the original sources of such motifs.
Dr. Aune will provide a tour of her studio and share her inspirations and processes, as she collects traditional designs from historic textiles and domestic artifacts, and re-arranges them into iconic compositions to honor the memory of her maternal Minnesota-Swedish ancestors.
The Studio Visit will premiere on the event page at 2 PM ET on June 5 via YouTube and Facebook, and remain available to stream through June 12.
This event is the sixth in a series of Virtual Studio Tours from Scandinavia House.
