with Ei kommentteja

Thank you for joining us at the opening at Galleria Ronga, Nykyaika, Koppelo and Tampere Art Museum. We could have squeezed in just few more people to the last opening at the museum!

Sincere thanks to all our artists -you are the ones making these events what they are about, huge thanks also to museum masters, gallery personal and volunteers for helping us with all the preparations.
