The Jyväskylä Artists Association

The Jyväskylä Artist Association was founded in 1945 as an organization for professional artists in Central Finland. The Artist Association supports the social and professional interests of artists in Central Finland by organising exhibitions and events, by maintaining a gallery and art rental boutique as well as through connections to cultural institutions and organisations.

Galleria Becker  and Art Rental Boutique

The Jyväskylä Artist Association’s gallery, Galleria Becker, is located in a quaint, wooden, 1903 house in the vicinity of the Jyväskylä University. Annually, the gallery presents 17 contemporary art exhibitions. The duration of each exhibition is three weeks long.

The exhibition space is comprised of two separate rooms and the combined surface area is 56 m2. The room height is 3.2 m. The surrounding courtyard and garden can also be used for exhibitions.

The Jyväskylä Artist’s Association’s art rental boutique functions together with Galleria Becker out of the same location. Art rentals have been an important part of the artist association’s operation since 1985. The art rental boutique offers artwork for rent and for sale, from artist association members and other artists who have shown their work in Galleria Becker. A collection of over 1000 artworks, including artist prints, paintings, photography and sculpture from over 100 artists is available in the boutique.
