Wonderful watercolors at Lahti

I was visiting 90th anniversary exhibition of Finnish Painters´ Association at art museum Lahti.

I especially liked the wonderful watercolors by artist Senja Vellonen (above and below).

The exhibition is open until 2.12. 2018.

Art from the forest

Walking in the forest is like walking in a three-dimensional art work. One can also focus on small objects from nature. Soili Arha is internationally known artist who makes her own art from nature. The examples are from larger works in the book Tekstiilitaidetta luonnosta (Textile art from nature. Soili Arha and Teija Isohauta. Maahenki 2015).

Art courses by Saimaa

I visited Sinisen Saimaan taideinstituutti (private art institute by Saimaa lake).

Katja Antonoff and some other artists organize art courses there during summer time.

During the courses the students visit also at famous rock paintins of Astuvansalmi.


Artist Katja Antonoff

The place is the most picturesque and delightful, and it is located at the historical Himalansaari area.

The old church belongs to the historical area.
