Tour artists' studios and galleries from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Dec. 1 in Lindsborg. Guest artist Carla Wilson will demonstrate Swedish Kurbit painting at Small World Gallery, 127 N. Main. Multi-media folk artist, Carla Wilson picks up mundane domestic objects recycling them to create functional and decorative art. Influenced by Lindsborg’s Swedish heritage, floral kubit designs, dating back to the 1700’s, are prominent in Wilson’s painted furniture and household items. Noting the importance of symbolism and historic preservation, Wilson takes care in preserving the original tenor, yet adding her own finesse. The research of Swedish folkdrätk (folk dress) inspired the design of small decorative purses
