DORTE VISBY -LAILA STENDERUP - AILA SIMPSON and a new addition to the Nordic Tent - SIMON KOFOED - Simon exhibiting for the first time with Cultural Connections CC with his beautiful and delicate translucent vessels inspired by plants from Sea and Land.
Several of the artists have over the years participated in Cultural Connections CC Gallery's international exhibitions , such as COLLECT LONDON at The Saatchi Gallery as well as SOFA NEW YORK and CHICAGO thus building up an international reputation in the footsteps of other internationally well-known Nordic artists.
This year THE NORDIC TENT will continue the concept: GUEST OF THE DANES after its successful reintroduction last year - this time our guest will be nearer to home - ROBERT HUNTER - inspired in form and glazes by his natural surroundings in stunning Aberdeenshire- after the very successful showing of the Japanese potter YUTYA SEGAWA last year.
