The Association of Gala Enthusiasts – Children’s Culture Festival

The Association of Gala Enthusiasts – Children’s Culture Festival at the Nordic House

Textile exhibition by Edda Mac in the foyer of the Nordic House

Optimistic Bína arrives bearing gifts, Jafet the Astronaut shows up in the wrong costume, and the Captain tells the same joke for the third year running. They are all members of The Association of Gala Enthusiasts which convenes every second Saturday of February each year. This time around they had their portraits embroidered to celebrate the occasion, and they will be on display in the Nordic House!

Edda Mac is an Icelandic artist with a BFA degree from Parsons, Paris (spring 2012). She has also studied painting and textiles in Italy, France, South Korea, and Iceland.

The exhibition is open every day during the festival, 17th-22nd April, 10.00-17.00.
