PORVOO ART ASSOCIATION
FOR ART AND CULTURE
Welcome to the website of Porvoo Art Association, founded more than 50 years ago.
We are interested in and moved by art and the status of art in society.Maybe these things resonate for you too.Our question is:How does art move people?What is, and what is not art?How do aesthetics and philosophy relate to art?And, of course – how can we promote the scope of art in Porvoo?
Whatever art means to you – work, hobby, investment, form of well-being – you are welcome to join us.The doors are open for everyone interested.
The Art Association runs the Art Rental Service Konstanext to the Art Hall at Porvoo Art Factory.Konstais a low-threshold service for acquiring art.You can rent and return works of art or you can purchase them directly or by paying gradually.More than 40 artists are represented, and the works on display are replaced at least once a year.You can find paintings, sculptures, ceramic art, graphic art, drawings and mixed media works by professional artists.
In the past, we have arranged diverse inter-artistic cultural events.We encourage actors in the cultural field e.g. by granting the Cultural Act of the Year award.We cooperate with other cultural associations in the region.
