During the summer, it is possible to come across my works in Mänttä, Tampere and Kokkola as well. Mänttä’s cellar exhibition at Gallery Päivölän Gellaria is being held for the tenth time already, and for me this is the fifth summer participating in the exhibition. You can easily get there on foot from Pekilo, which serves as the base for the Mänttä Art Festival, when you head towards Mäntän Klubi. The mound of grass found between these two landmarks is the stone foundation of a bombed-out house, which has since served as a root cellar and today is the home of Mänttä’s smallest summer exhibition.
The other artists in the Gellaria exhibition this summer are: Pirjetta Brander, Timo Kokko, Krister Gråhn & Heidi Saramäki, Janne Laine, Tiia Matikainen, Juha Menna, Pasi Mälkiä, Anna Pekkala, Antti Raitala, Raine A. Sahrman, Ville Tanhuala, Kirsimaria Törönen, Varadharaji Veerapathiran, Ville Karel Viirelaid and outdoors Pasi Karjula, Tapani Kokko, Raine Körkkö, Veikko Laakso and Hannu Lukin.
