The Art Circuit - Konstrundan 18-20.8.2017
Open studios 19-20.8, 11 am to 5 pm

For the tenth year in a row the Art Circuit (Konstrundan) opens the doors to artists, craftsmen and designers along the West and South coast of Finland. The Art Circuit offers you the opportunity to get to know art and the people behind the art in the Swedishspeaking regions of Finland. You can see anything from visual art to handicraft, from photography to video art in the environment that the art is being produced in.
During Art Friday we arrange activities outside the studios, and this year our goal is to reach the children and the youth.

kite painting at STUDIO 23  

Studio 23 in Hiirola is hosting a workshop for families on Friday, 18.8.2017 at 3-5 pm.

Children are invited to paint a small kite which can be taken home.

As all the activities and presentations it is for free.

Our aim is to present the rich variety of art in Finland and let the artists present themselves to them. The Art Circuit offers you the possibility to see the artists' everyday life and to experience the magic of the creative processes.

During the event 19.-20.8.2017, Saturday – Sunday, you can visit artists at their ateliers between 11 am – 5 pm. A relaxed and easy-to-approach atmosphere makes this a memorable event for both visitors and artists!
As in previous years, more exact information about the open studios and artists will be found in the Konstrundan magazine and online.

This year a group of artists in the Mikkeli region is participating in the Konstrundan.
The organization of Konstrundan selected 6 artists. They have open studios on Saturday 19.8 and Sunday 20.8 from 12-18.
