Joan Backes (US)
American artist Joan Backes loves landscapes where the ocean meets the earth. These kinds of surroundings inspire her works from where she says everyone can find something familiar. While visiting Rauma Backes also found inspiration from Old Rauma and it’s old wooden buildings.
During her visit she organized a course teaching how to paint landscapes. Each participator in this course gathered their own paintings into a book and all the books were presented in an exhibition in October.
