The annual major painting event, the Sales Event of the Finnish Painters’ Union, will be staged in Merikaapelihalli, at the Cable Factory, in March. It is the biggest art event in Finland, and over six hundred artists take part in the exhibition, putting nearly 1700 works of art on display.
The Sales Event offers a broad overview of Finnish painting. Most styles and techniques are represented and both new entrants and well-known artists are participating.
The Sales Event is open for nine days, and customers are welcome to take their purchases immediately. It is worth visiting this free-admission event several times, because the selection changes during the nine days as the artists replace purchased works with new ones.
The number of visitors to this popular event has been rising over the years, and last year a record of nearly 24,000 art lovers visited the Sales Event.
