Heroes and rascals in gold fields

Heroes and rascals of Lappish gold fields depicted in artistic ways

Lappish gold prospectors and surrounding sceneries have been painted, drawn etc. as long as there has been prospecting. Various artists have taken liberties in how gold prospectors have been depicted in their works. Styles vary from impressionist to naivistic but the feeling is tangible whether it is about hunks taking a beer break on a hot summer day or curvy circus artist on her trapeze. Odd magic of Lappish nature and light and colours of north can be felt in the works, too. Welcome to gold fields of Lapland, the world of heroes and rascals!

The exhibition is included in admission fee.
