A Menahga-area artist’s work exploring her heritage is on display at the Cultural Center in New York Mills.

The exhibit, “Expressions of a Sami Heritage,” is comprised of Kayleen Horsma’s oil paintings. They will be on display at the center through Saturday, May 31.

The Sami are an indigenous Scandinavian people who live in Arctic Sweden, Norway, Finland and Russia.

This show of portraits and landscapes evokes Horsma’s cultural heritage and present context for the Finnish-American traditions in the New York Mills region.

Horsma wrote that, “no matter what or how I paint, the destination is the same.  A relative moment of closure and of feeling complete.”
