More about The Association of Gala Enthusiasts:
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 on 17th-22nd April during the Children’s Culture Festival.
Edda Mac is an Icelandic artist with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Parsons, Paris (spring 2012). She has also studied painting and textiles in Italy, France, South Korea and Iceland.
