Exhibition of Sami portraits

Painter Anna-Brith Arntsen is showing some of her most recent paintings of Sami personalities for the very first time.

The paintings exhibited are: Ester Fjellheim, Ande Somby, Runar Myrnes Balto, Silje Karine Muotka, Aili Keskitalo, Eirik Myrhaug, Joar Nango, Ella Marie Hætta Isaksen.
In addition, a sculpture of Hans Ragnar Mathisen is shown. 

Location: Gallery 2nd floor, Kulturhuset Tromsø
Time: Tuesday the 17th of January at 3 pm (this is the opening event – the art is exhibited during the whole week at TIFF)

Anna Brith Arntsen is firmly rooted and educated within the classical art direction and paints our contemporary in this tradition. However, it is not the exterior that counts, but the human state and history that she seeks to convey. In the meetings with the individuals, the focus is on the conversation. Anna-Birth cares deeply about the light and the atmosphere, which both surrounds and isolates the people, creates an atmosphere and determines the shape. Anna-Brith has her own studio, gallery, and art school in Tromsdalen. She paints for private and public clients and participates in exhibitions both at home and abroad.
