The Polar Star 2008 is given to one of my favorite painters Terje Fagermo (link-text in Norwegian).
I made a short presentation of Terje´s art from the exhibition he and his daughters had in Geiranger last year.
Terje´s paintings can be found in many private and public collections and galleries. He had his first exhibition in his hometown Ålesund in 1969. His international debut was in Washington in 1988 together with the Norwegian painters Kåre Tveter and Ludvig Eikaas.
His works are on exhibition at Sulheim Farm and I also showed some of his works in my blogpost from August 16, 2006 when we experienced the hospitality by Kjell Holm at his Sandbu Mansion.
I send all my congratulations to Terje.
