Mixing up the places, atmospheres and memories is how the dreams are built up. Each sculpture is a surreal scene from the Finnish national epic poem "Kalevala." Together, the pieces form a modernized narrative, captured in glass and rolled into one 3D design using the Graal Technique. Artist Sini Majuri will be giving an Artist talk during the gallery opening on Sept 8th. The Exhibition is open from Sept. 8 - Oct 28 the Gallery opening is from 6-8 pm.
