As with the restoration of the building, the new exhibition has at the spirit of the 1930s and 40s, the time when Amos Anderson spent time in Söderlångvik. Some of the works on display are acquired by Amos Anderson himself, while some are later acquired by the museum for its collections. Among them are works by Sigrid Schauman, Ellen Thessleff, Rafael Ward, Sulho Sipilä, Alvar Cawen and Birger Carlstedt, as well as many artists from the Turku region. With the renovation, the exhibition spaces have been expanded, and the new space presents the life of Amos Anderson as well as the history of the Söderlångvik estate.

Exhibitions


Paul Osipow
28.4-30.9.2021
In the summer of 2021, Café Söderlångvik will display food-themed paintings by visual artist Paul Osipow (b. 1939) as well as the artist’s unprecedented graphics. Osipow, who has had a career of more than sixty years, is one of the most significant visual artists in our country. It is not easy to compartmentalize the production of an artist who enjoys pop art, more traditional still life painting, and abstract pictorial subjects into any particular style or ideology. Indeed, Paul Osipow himself has said that he avoids theorizing art. The most important thing for him is the process of creating – the joy of painting.

Carriage museum


In the building of old carriages you will find some of the manor’s old horse carriages and working tools.
