DESCRIPTION

The Oulu Museum of Art will continue its displays of Tuomo Seppo’s art collection. Containing over 1,700 works of art, this collection emphasizes the North Finnish aspect. Artists of North Finland, or ones who have been professionally active here, that are featured in the exhibition include Marjatta Hanhijoki, Niilo Hyttinen, Tapio Junno, Paavo Leinonen, Markku and Olli Keränen, Kaarlo Mikkonen and Carl Wargh. Among the exhibits are Marjatta Hanhijoki’s masterly interior scenes in watercolour, self-portraits by Niilo Hyttinen, and work by the late academician Kain Tapper, who was a trailblazer of Finnish sculpture in wood. Other artists of the exhibition are Mirja Airas, Göran Augustson, Jaakko Heikkinen, Outi Heiskanen, Hannele Kylänpää, Raimo Reinikainen, Anja Rönty and Päivi Sirén.
