In an art hall TaidehAlli you can visit an art exhibition of local artist Raija Ääri in idyllic milieu. Themes of paintings vary from nature to landscapes and Finnish myths and tales. In addition to art you can find children’s books of rhyming poets where trolls and fairies adventure.
Adjacent to art hall you can find Sofia’s room which is an interior of past displaying the life story of Ms. Sofia Vätti (1877-1961) from Säkylä municipality. Sofia was not an ordinary woman of her own time as the letters, recipies, post cards, textiles and other artifacts on display show us. She was well educated and sofisticated woman and skilled artisan who sewed all her clothes herself, weaved fabrics and ordered fashion magazines all the way from Paris. She was also well known for her cooking skills and often treated her friends with fine cookings.
Raija Ääri also arranges home concerts and accepts groups on request. This is an opportunity to have a sneak peek in a local home and piece of history of Säkylä municipality.
Open by appointment. Raija Ääri, tel. +358 50 525 5854.
