Life is like a river

Art and fine weather

Even though I was struggling with a fibro-flare I couldn't stay inside the house all day in this beautiful weather. I walked (slowly!) to the center of town to see a few exhibitions in Listagilið. One of them was the annual exhibition of the graduating class of Myndlistaskólinn á Akureyri / Akureyri School of Visual Arts.  This is one of them; Eva Björg Óskarsdóttir. I got to know her (and her boyfriend) through some projects in Freyvangsleikhúsið, great people both of them.  Eva's graduation-project were ear-studs made of wood and the shape of the studs is based on earmarks farmers use for sheep here in Iceland. She calls the brand "Merkja" or "Mark".

Extra pictures, one from this graduation exhibition (the one with the textured circle) and another from an exhibition in Ketilhúsið where school-children and grown-ups (professional artists) show their work together.
