Määränpää translates to destination

Määränpää showcases works by members of the Turku Printmakers Association, a regional artist organization in Southern Finland. Founded in 1933, their collective provides space to over 100 artists, operating a member-based printmaking studio in
downtown Turku, as well as Gallery Joella, located along the iconic Aura River. Seventeen members from their organization have been selected to provide a comprehensive sampling of their vibrant creative community. While many of these artists demonstrate expertise in traditional print processes such as woodblock printing, etching, and lithography, others utilize innovative approaches through materials and techniques. This exhibition is part of a wider exchange between print communities in Finland and the US; an exhibition of seven American artists was featured at Gallery Joella in June-July of this year.

This project has been funded by a grant from the Finnish Cultural Foundation to showcase how versatile the medium is and to celebrate the ways printmaking cultivates community/common ground among artists across vast distances.
