Intro
The Finnish Jewellery Art Association (Korutaideyhdistys ry ) is presenting its members' works in a group show in August. When altogether 20 artists are presented from different corners of Finland, you can get a good look at what is going on in the Finnish field at the moment. This exhibition was juried by a gallerist, photographer Katja Hagelstam and jewellery artist, Helena Lehtinen.

Taidekeskus Itä Art Centre East is a new gallery and art space in the central of Lappeenranta. It is administered by Etelä-Karjalan Taiteilijaseura (”The Artists’ Association of South Karelia”) ja Korutaideyhdistys (”Jewelry Art Society”). The Centre consists of two Gallery spaces and The Art Rental Store of Lappeenranta. It is the only gallery that regularly presents contemporary jewellery in Finland.
 
The Jewellery Art Association was founded in Lappeenranta in 2005. The association aims to promote contemporary jewellery in Finland and to improve its recognition as an art and design form. Another goal of the association is to increase awareness about Finnish jewellery internationally. As means towards those ends, the association organizes exhibitions, presentations and discussion panels, and distributes information about events.
