Earlier this year, Finlandia University was the proud recipient of a collection of artwork by the preeminent Finnish American artist Gerald Matthew Immonen (1936-2011). Immonen’s ties to Finlandia go back decades as once a featured artist in the Finlandia University Annual Contemporary Finnish American Artist Series Exhibition, the longest-running exhibit series in the United States celebrating the accomplishments of Finnish American artists.
Immonen’s exhibit, Into Another World: Works by Finnish American artist Gerald Matthew Immonen (1936-2011), was on display at the Finlandia University Gallery throughout November. In partnership with the Finnish American Folk School and Buellwood Fiber Arts Guild, Immonen’s exhibit also served as the inspiration for workshops such as a color-study yarn winding session.
For those who weren’t able to explore and enjoy the November exhibit, the Finlandia University Gallery shares the virtual tour below!
