About Nordic 5 Arts:

Nordic 5 Arts is a group of professional artists born in Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden, and American artists of Scandinavian descent. Connections to that heritage are expressed in their work through a deep feeling for landscape, a bond with the cycles of nature, and a spare and elegant design sense. In this exhibition they explore the theme of Nordic Light. Painter Helena Tiainen says: “My spirit is particularly drawn to the long days and magical nights of the Midsummer time, Juhannus in Finland. During this time of the year, birds sing all night long … The sun never sets, it only dips right below the horizon and the nocturnal twilight lasts a very long while.”
