Monika and Peter Garami, Warren based photographers and the organizers of the art show, celebrate the beauty of the magnificent Scandinavian North to honor our local, rich Scandinavian heritage. On display during the art show will be examples of folk costumes, books from the 1800s, dolls, and photography of our Scandinavian ancestors who settled here during the late 1800s. Along with the folk displays are sophisticated and enduring photographs of the extraordinary Northern Lights as seen first hand through the Garami lenses.

Having lived in California and Arizona prior to moving to Pennsylvania, gave them the opportunity to hone their talents while recording the surroundings, documenting landscapes, and perfecting their photographic skills. Monika and Peter’s goals are to share their vision of our world – a world that is perfect and sometimes imperfect – but beautiful nevertheless.

This community outreach and educational art show is made possible by the collaboration with Hessel Valley Lutheran Church, St. Paul Lutheran Church of Warren, and the presenters of Scandinavian Folkdrakter (folk costumes) at the Jamestown Scandinavian Folk Festival. The artwork at Wetmore Gallery will be for sale during their exhibit – 35% of all proceeds from our art sale will go to the Library for their Library Midwinter Fundraising event to be held January 26, 2019 from 7-10 p.m.

Wetmore Gallery’s Opening Reception Event will be held January 3, 5-7pm. The event is free and open to public. Scandinavian hors d’oeuvres and refreshments will be served at the reception. For more information Please call: 760-415-6884 or contact us at:
