Äkkigalleria has put together another show - this time with the theme of "new National Romanticism - Finnish art by Finns for Finns". I have the privilege of participating in the show with the following artists: Elina Försti, Mikko Ijäs, Friidu Kahjo, Risto Kajo, Kaarina Kuusisto-Lukkari, Sami Lukkarinen, Jyrki Markkanen and Matti Waskilampi. This show will be exploring Finnishness in the 2000's, as experienced and expressed by Finnish artists.
This time around, Äkkigalleria will be located at Kauppakatu 13 in the Jyväskylä Yläkaupunki neighborhood. The opening of the show will be on Wednesday, May 18th from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m. Äkkigalleria will be open from Thursday the 19th until Sunday the 22nd from 1 p.m. until 7 p.m. You should at least stop by and check out the show on Saturday the 21st, during Yläkaupungin Yö, which incidentally, is Jyväskylä's finest festival.
