Art Center Salmela

Welcome to Art Center Salmela! We are a summertime art gallery and cultural festival in Mäntyharju, Finland. Salmela’s annual exhibition showcases visual art by recognized veterans of modern Finnish art as well as young, upcoming talent. The largest visual arts festival in Finland, Art Center Salmela welcomes you to the 34th annual exhibit 10 June – 13 August 2022. We are open from 11am to 6pm every day.

In addition to visual art, Salmela is the venue for a yearly series of concerts played at our own outdoor stage and inside the historic Mäntyharju church across the street.

The setting for our exhibits is a stunning and historically significant cultural milieu. A mid-19th century parish house functions as the main gallery. Across the water, the exhibit continues in a lovingly restored old apothecary, postal office, and auxiliary buildings that offer a peek into the residential and commercial history of the area. Our waterside sculpture park, restaurant Kesäheinä, and collection of beautiful gazebos make up the rest of the extensive exhibition space.

We are open 10 June – 13 August 2023 daily from 11am to 6pm.

Admission: Adults 15 €, students 10 €, groups (min. 20 persons) 14 € / person, children under sixteen 5 €, children under seven FREE, season ticket 24 € (valid also at Vuohijärvi House of Nature and Culture)
