YOUNG ARTISTS 2011 exhibition opened for public in Helsinki Kunsthalle on Saturday 3.12. The exhibition is a biennal that shows works of artists under the age of 35-years. Over 430 artists applied for the exhibition with some 1200 works, and 56 of the artists were selected by a jury appointed by the Finnish Artists Association.

Two graduating Fine Art students were selected to the exhibition, Anne Lehtelä with her work Tanssi (Dance) and Laura Rytkönen with her work Perhe-esitys (the Family Act). Former Tamk students also appear in the exhibition, artists Jukka Silokunnas, Laura Konttinen and Anastasia Lobkovski (who has graduated from the media programme).
From Dance by Anne Lehtelä

The Young Artists exhibition has a long history; it was established on 1939 to focus on promoting the works by artists in the beginning of their careers. It’s an important merit for an artist still establishing their career to be chosen for juried exhibitions. It’s a good way to get to bigger audiences and get your work known on the field.

Find more information on the exhibition on the site of Helsinki Kunsthalle.
