Enkel Glädje: Simple Joy an Exhibit by Bevin Holmberg
Bevin Holmberg, aka Mermaid Meadow, brings her charming artwork to our Nordic Hall for her exhibit titled Enkel Glädje: Simple Joy.
Bevin is an artist living and working in Falmouth, Maine. She is the daughter of a woodworker and a painter. She obtained a B.F.A. in Studio Art from James Madison University in Virginia, with a concentration in alternative process photography. She also holds a Master of Education in Art from the University of Minnesota, and finished the program with summer study at Säterglänten Institute for Slöjd (traditional handicrafts) in Insjön and Stockholm, Sweden. While in Minnesota, she lived and participated in the Tilsner Artist Cooperative in St. Paul, worked as a sign painter, and taught drawing lessons to elementary-age students.
“I moved to the beautiful state of Maine (2010), and as an artist, was inspired by its rustic charm. I have a deep appreciation for traditional art practices, and studying in Sweden furthered my attachment to Scandinavian design. Two lessons I learned at Säterglänten were the importance of traditional handicraft, and the necessity of Fika. In my art practice, I am illustrating aspects of life that one might find interesting. I see personality in nature, and I am especially interested in pattern. For me, art does not need to be complicated if it brings someone joy.”
