Our inaugural Rosemaling Coast to Coast Convention would not have been possible without hours of work from our amazing volunteers, generous grants from organization and private donors and support from incredible artists all over our nation. Tusen Takk!!

We also want to thank YOU! It has been fun connecting with so many artists from so many places. We are proud to support the growth of our Norwegian Rosemaling community.

Thank you to those who helped to make this event happen!
