Forthright and creative joy / Folk art from Västerbotten

General painters, wood carvers, amateurs – the names are many. What unites them are the desire and joy to create prominent details and colour richness. The term “folk art” can be defined as art created by people without formal art education. The results are personal, characteristic and independent works of art, that are rarely influenced by styles through time. This exhibition has artistic intention and shows the Västerbottniska heritage in customs and traditions.
Date: until 26 January 2020
Museum: Västerbottens museum
