Vesterheim Norwegian-American Museum on Friday will open "Four from the North," an exhibition of recent works by Alison Aune, Ann Jenkins, Ann Klefstad, and Arna Rennan, artists from the Duluth Minnesota area. The four artists will be at the museum during a reception from 5:00-7:00 p.m. There will be a welcome and gallery talk at 5:30 p.m. Refreshments will be served

"Their artworks reflect a deep respect and love for the natural world and the ways in which natural motifs have created the traditional patterns of Norway and Minnesota," said Vesterheim Chief Curator Laurann Gilbertson. "The artists work in different styles and media, but are united in a shared Nordic aesthetic and a mutual appreciation of heritage," she added.
"Four from the North" will be on view through April 16, 2014.
