Lappish gold prospectors and surrounding sceneries have been painted, drawn etc. as long as there has been prospecting.
Various artists have taken liberties in how gold prospectors have been depicted in their works. Styles vary from impressionist to naivistic but the feeling is tangible whether it is about hunks taking a beer break on a hot summer day or curvy circus artist on her trapeze. Odd magic of Lappish nature and light and colours of north can be felt in the works, too.
The exhibition is included in admission fee. Texts are in Finnish and English. Welcome to gold fields of Lapland, the world of heroes and rascals!
