The winter exhibition starts from mid-November until the New Year. The popular art exhibitions represent a vast colourful outlook on genuine Finnish humour.

Naïve Art was born in France under the great wave of modernism at the end of the 19th century. It is characterized by its optimism and child-like inquisitive nature, which is free from the academic rules of traditional fine art. Typically a naïve painting depicts the bustling life of ordinary people, or charming sceneries from the sunny countryside. It also often presents heart-warming fantasy with funny animals, or dream-like imagery twisting towards surrealism. A smile is guaranteed!
