Museum-Gallery Alariesto

Museum-Gallery Alariesto is located in the heart of Sodankylä, close to Old Church and Reindeer statue.

Museum-Gallery Alariesto is located in the heart of Sodankylä, close to Old Church and Reindeer statue. Gallery opened in July 1986 and the permanent exhibition shows artist Andreas Alariesto’s (1900-1989) art. The exhibition has over 100 paintings and artefacts of Alariesto’s life.
The paintings show visualized stories of Alariesto’s childhood. Some of the stories are true and some are fiction- like all good stories are. Alariesto’s colorful, everyday life showing work has the feeling of authenticity and originality.

The gallery is run by Riikka and Andreas Lapinkuvat- foundation and Sodankylä Municipality. The mission of the foundation is to take care of the art collection and cherish the cultural heritage of Lapland and especially of old Sompio.
