Wisconsin State Rosemaling Association

Velkommen to the WSRA website!

We are a not-for-profit organization dedicated to preserving, teaching and sharing the rich art of Norwegian Rosemaling.


We hope you enjoy our website as we made quite a few changes this year. Our biggest change is the new photo gallery for all our WSRA members to display their work. This is not a shop to sell items but a place to share our artistic side, classroom enthusiasts, and the hard work all our WSRA members put in to preserving, teaching and sharing the rich art of Norwegian Rosemaling!

We have also added some additional links to outside sources to help easily explore lodging and places to eat while planning your next trip to Stoughton, WI.

Lastly, as Rosemalers, we don't want to forget how the revival of this rich art began for our community. We have added links to our very own Per Lysne and Ethel Kvalheim legacies.
