Art Fair – 200 Years of Turku Art 

Art Fair – 200 Years of Turku Art  leads us to the birthplace of Finnish visual arts in Turku. At the same time the artists that have operated in the town as well as Turku art will be on display, from the Romantic period to modern-day.

Visual art scene in Turku has strong roots: it is known in Finland as a town where visual arts was first taught before mid 1850s. Visual artists from Turku have throughout the history  studied abroad, especially in Germany and France.

The exhibition consist of rarely seen art works: landscapes, portraits, small depictions of every day life and self-portraits. Among them also some cityscapes from Turku.

The earliest art works of the exhibition date back to romanticism by artists like  Alexander Lauréus, Gustaf Wilhelm Finnberg and Robert Wilhelm Ekman. Turku modernism is well presented: Edvin Lydén a pioneer of the trendency and Otto Mäkilä, the leading figure of Turku surrealism.

Exhibited are also the well-known names of present day Turku visual arts, among them Kauko Lehtinen, Harro Koskinen, Ann Sundholm, Anna-Maija Aarras, Jan-Erik Andersson and Teija Lehto. Art works by young female artists such as by Annika Dahlsten and Hanna Seppänen are also exhibited.

Most of the art works are loans from the collections of Turku Art museum. Other art works are from the collections of Gösta Serlachius Fine Arts Foundation, collections of Art Foundation Merita and of Fortum Art Foundation as well as loans from artists.
