Virtual Studio Visit with Pieper Bloomquist

Visit the studio of Scandinavian folk artist and ASF Folk Art Fellow Pieper Bloomquist! Based in Grand Forks, North Dakota, Pieper studied Swedish Dalmålning (Kurbits) and Bonadsmålning, and has been painting in traditional Scandinavian styles of folk art since 1993. Pieper enjoys utilizing elements from folk art traditions to tell modern stories, incorporating the floral forms, borders, layout and perspective of the past to depict scenes that — while personal to her — portray universal human experiences and daily activities of growing up in the upper Midwest. She enjoys placing playful, contemporary scenes in the context of traditional Swedish flower and scroll formations.

In this video, Pieper will share the differences between various Scandinavian art forms, revealing a bit of her painting process, and experiences working as an artist (as well as an oncology nurse) during the pandemic.

Bolla — Virtual Book Talk with Pajtim Statovci and Bethanne Patrick

On Tuesday, July 20 at 7 PM ET, see a pre-recorded book talk with Finnish-Kosovan author Pajtim Statovci (National Book Award finalist, "Crossing") on his new novel "Bolla." With moderator Bethanne Patrick, he’ll discuss the writing of the novel, available on July 6 in translation by David Hackston from Pantheon.

An unlikely love story in Kosovo with unpredictable consequences that reverberates throughout a young man’s life, "Bolla" is a dazzling tale full of fury, tenderness, longing, and lust. In April 1995, Arsim is a 24-year-old, recently married student at the University of Pristina, keeping his head down to gain a university degree in a time and place deeply hostile to Albanians. In a café he meets a young man named Miloš, a Serb. Before the day is out, everything has changed for both of them, and within a week two milestones erupt in Arsim’s married life: his wife announces her first pregnancy and he begins a life in secret.

After these fevered beginnings, Arsim and Miloš’s unlikely affair is derailed by the outbreak of war, which sends Arsim’s fledgling family abroad and timid Miloš spiraling down a dark path, as depicted through chaotic journal entries. Years later, deported back to Pristina after a spell in prison and now alone and hopeless, Arsim finds himself in a broken reality that makes him completely question his past. What happened to him, to them, exactly? How much can you endure, and forgive?

Enthusiastic, am sharing information concerning a friend of mine's latest project, Icelandic Captain Gunnar Marel Eggertsson's new 'Iceland Knarr' Project. Gunnar will build a full sized replica of the 'Hedeby 3 Knarr' Viking merchant ship, discovered in the Hedeby Harbor in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany in 1980. Gunnar shall hand build his 'Iceland Knarr' with same materials and the Scandinavian clinker tradition (lapstrake), the same ancient Norse manner the 'Hedeby 3 Knarr' Viking merchant ship was constructed. Historically, Knarr ships were the largest cargo carrier merchant Viking ships. Knarr's were exceptionally sea-worthy, capable of traveling 75 miles (121 km) per day. Ancient Norse Knarr ships were built in Hedeby, an important Danish Viking Age trading area, during 8th to 11th centuries. Hedeby is located on the southern end of the Jutland Peninsula, known now as modern Schleswig-Holstein, Germany. Iceland's history reveals Norse Knarr ships transported about 15,000 Norse settlers during 874-930, the 'Icelandic Age of Settlement.' Gunnar plans on building 'Iceland Knarr' in Hedeby, the historically important area of Viking Knarr shipbuilding. When Captain Gunnar Marel Eggertsson's 'Iceland Knarr ship is completed, he plans on sailing the historic journey from Hedeby to Iceland without any modern navigation tools. Gunnar will prove the Knarr's excellent sailing capabilities in difficult oceans. Gunnar an experienced Captain, sailed the Norwegian Gaia Viking ship for a 14 month journey 1991-92 from Norway, past Iceland to North America and down it's coast to South America's Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Gunnar Marel raised by a few generations of Shipwrights from his father's lineage has an extensive knowledge of Viking Ship history. He is a Master Ship Builder as well as a competent Viking ship builder. In 1996 he began building a replica of the 9th century Gokstad, a perfectly preserved Viking Ship in Gokstad near Sandefjord, Norway. The Gokstad ship was excavated from a Viking Burial mound. Gunnar used traditional Norse methods hand building his replica Gokstad Viking ship, naming his ship"Islendingur." When completed he proved its' sea worthiness, sailing it to and around the British Isles, back to Iceland. After which, Captain Gunnar Marel Eggertson sailed 'Islendingur' year 2000 along the same route from Iceland to North America, commemorating Leifur Eiriksson's historical journey, year 1,000. Gunnar's direct 33rd generation ancestor on his mother's lineage, Þjóðhildur Jörundardóttir was Leifur Eiriksson's mother. "Islendingur' is centrally exhibited in Vikingaheimer (Viking World) Museum in Iceland. Iceland honored Captain Gunnar Marel Eggertson with the "Order of Falcon," for his accomplishments with Viking ships. It is the highest, most revered Honor, Iceland can bestow. Iceland's history reveals Leifur Eiriksson would have sailed a Viking merchant Knarr Ship to North America, as Knarr merchant ships are deeper and wider than other Viking ships. Knarr's are able to carry a crew of 10-20 people, livestock and their goods. Knarr's were the Viking ship, important in the transportation of Norse people doing Iceland's settlement 874-930. Captain Gunnar Marel Eggertsson will echo Iceland's Settlement history after using ancient Norse methods building, then sailing without modern technology, the completed 'Iceland Knarr' from Hedeby to Iceland. Further information about Gunnar's Iceland Knarr project, his exceptional capabilities and accomplishments, please click link to his 'Iceland Knarr' website:

Please share, we need all the help we can get! Jafet J. Rytkonen was born in Finland in 1879 and came to Negaunee MI to work in the iron mines in 1902. However, he quickly changed professions and became an entrepreneur. He built the Historic Vista Theater/PAAC in 1925-1926. This theater is well loved by its small community of Negaunee, Iron Town USA. Many updates had been completed and many more were on the cusp of happening until Covid-19 shut everything down. After recent heavy rains the roof drains clogged causing water to pool, the massive weight of the standing water took down the entire roof over the auditorium. The theater has been a home for so many struggling for a place to belong. Producing plays, musicals, readings, pageants, fundraisers, both showing and making movies, youth productions, concerts, workshops, and much more! Even producing and performing a traveling adaptation of the Kalevala back in 2009! Please help save the building before the winter snow hits! Any amount is helpful, thank you for your time and support, it's appreciated more than you know!
