Finnish folk tales, Harbin International Ice and Snow Sculpture Festival
folk

Image by Rincewind42
This freeze made of snow (pardon the pun) tells of a famous folk tale from Finland. It’s part of the Snow World exhibition on Sun Island in Harbin, Heilongjiang in the north east of China.

Harbin (???), is the capital of the Heilongjiang Province in Northeast China. It lies on the southern bank of the Songhua River. Harbin is the tenth largest city in China, serving as a key political, economic, scientific, cultural and communications hub in Northeastern China. Harbin is originally a Manchu word meaning "a place for drying fishing nets". Harbin bears the nicknames "The Pearl on the swan’s neck" because the shape of Heilongjiang resembles a swan, and "Ice City" for its long and cold winter. This city is most famous for its beautiful display of ice sculptures in winter and is known as China’s gateway to trade with Russia. In the 1920s, Harbin was considered China’s fashion capital as new designs from Paris and Moscow reached there first before arriving in Shanghai. Harbin is also a potential candidate for the 2022 Winter Olympics.

Buying Folk Art Paintings

June 18th, 2012

Buying Folk Art Paintings
Acquiring folk art art has turned into a passion of mine. I have been searching for them all over the place it appears. I discovered a lot of folk art paintings recently and that i am having problems choosing which to purchase.

There is a folk art painting by Rev. Howard Finster that’s titled Howard in 1944. It becomes an all enamel folk art painting which was painted in 1988. The smile about this portrait is extremely interesting and makes me smile just like big.

I’m also really taken with a folk art painting which was painted by painter Bill Dodge in Oct 1962. The title from the painting is First Trolley To Van Nuys. The painting is aboard and depicts the middle of town with the people in town. They’re within the windows as well as on the street. The city market, bakery, Hotel Van Nuys, an frozen treats parlor and also the Wing Lee Laundry are depicted in vibrant color. The women within the foreground are from the Trolley and their signs say “Ban the Monster” and “Keep Van Nuys rural”.

Thomas Chambers is just one of America’s foremost folk artists. I discovered an item by him which i just can’t stand greatly. It’s a bit austere for my tastes. The topic is really a fishing scene with villagers and boats. I do not believe that I’ll purchase this folk art painting because I simply can’t stand it.

There is a folk art painting I discovered called Alligator Fisher which was painted in 1940 which i enjoy. The blue from the bayou is extremely calming and also the trees provide an extremely Southern feel. There’s a swamp house within the painting and that i such as this one greatly. It reminds me very strongly of Louisiana.

My mother began this enthusiasm of mine for folk art paintings. She were built with a folk art painting by John Roeder within our parlor becoming an adult. I did previously spend hours just staring involved with it. The trees were so relaxing to get rid of myself in. I’ve asked her to provide me this excellent folk art painting often, but she says which i will need to hold back until after her funeral!

I discovered one folk art painting within my journey which i felt sad each time I looked over. The specific painting is really a Letter from My Mother. The appearance within the girl’s face is really serious and sad. I’ve no clue where that folk art painting should hold. The painting itself is magnificent; it simply makes me feel sad.

There’s a whole subset of folk art paintings that represent black Americana. I do not usually buy these pieces because they don’t talk to my experience. Used to do locate one piece which i purchased for any collector friend of mine that loves this kind of art. The folk art painting were built with a whimsical feel into it along with a woman soaking in a hammock. He hung this in the hallway and it has loved it for a long period.

My buddy likes folk art paintings around I actually do. He prefers animals to become the topics of paintings he purchases. I discovered an attractive clouded leopard folk art painting for him last Christmas and that he has asked which i keep my eyes open for additional enjoy it. He explained he will buy any art I find for him because he trusts which i know and understand his tastes.

I’ve kept my eyes open for animal themed folk art paintings for my buddy, but I simply find it hard to locate any as nice since the leopard which i got for him. The grand extent of animal themed folk art paintings I have found recently would be a painting of two owls on the limb and I realize that he’d nothing like it. Since i was kids, owls totally freak him out.

Eric is a collector of comtemparary art and paintings, such as oil paintings and acrylic paintings. He’s got skills of paintings for sale and contemporary art for sale.

2010-06-06 Washington Folk Festival - Flory Jagoda Sephardic Songs from Bosnia_0031!!.AVI

Description from Washington Folk Festival Program Guide Performers: Susan Gaeta Flory Jagoda (not able to make performance) Margie Jervis Alan Oresky Larry Robinson Joanna Stefanik Flory sings the songs her grandmother taught her in her native Sarajevo, Bosnia. As she sings in Ladino, the language of Sephardic Jews, we learn of a life that is no more. We treasure Flory for keeping the songs alive and passing them on. Indeed, she is a NEA National Heritage Fellow as well as a Wammie winner, treasured by all. Her “Ocho Candelitas” Hanukkah song has been performed by US military bands at holiday concerts, becoming part of our new holiday tradition. Under the auspicies of the Folk Life Apprenticeship Program of the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities, she is passing her Sephardic repertoire on to Susan Gaeta. She has recently been approached by a group of women in her neighborhood, Las Tias ( the aunts), who want to help her carry on her work, and she’s mentoring them, too. Flory Jagoda – Singer composer Flory Jagoda maintains one of Judaism’s richest cultural traditions through her performances of authentic, as well as original compositions, of Sephardic songs. These songs serve as a lyrical history of the Sephardim, the Spanish and Portuguese Jews who fled the Iberian Peninsula as a result of the Inquisition beginning in 1492. Many of these exiles settled in the Ottoman Empire, including the former Yugoslavia where they and their descendents continued to practice and
