A museum displaying Amos Anderson’s art collection and personal history has been operating at the main building of Söderlångvik since 1965. Discover Amos’ impressive life, comprehensive collection and our changing exhibitions.
The manor’s art collection consists mainly of works that have been there ever since Amos Anderson’s time: approximately a hundred paintings, sculptures and graphics. In Anderson’s private collections there are 250 works of art. Several artists from Turku, e.g. Edwin Lyden, Aarne Niinivirta and Teodor Schalin are represented. Also some of Sigrid Schauman’s, Lennart Segerstråle’s and Marcus Collin’s works are included.
In the summer of 2019 the exhibition Vanitas Chimitoensis by photo artist Niclas Warius, are shown at Café Vivan. In the summer of 2018 there were three interesting exhibitions at Söderlångvik manor. Besides Amos Anderson’s own collections there was an art exhibition by Hans Rosenström (b. 1978) in the museum’s main building. Among other works, the exhibition included narrative sound installations and photograms. Café Vivan located in the former barnhouse exhibited Tiina Vainio’s (b.1960) acrylic and Indian ink paintings with machine motives.
