The Studio building hosts three exhibition annually, bringing forth earlier works and different techniques used by the artist.

In addition to this monthly exhibitions in the museum café give a glimpse of contemporary art from Lapland.

The exhibition focuses on northern roots and heritage that inhibit the art of Reidar Särestöniemi (1925-1981). Born and raised in the village of Kaukonen, Kittilä, the artist drew his inspiration from the surrounding nature, farm life as well as the family’s spiritual legacy.

Reidar Särestöniemi was a master of hues and the colour scale his art originated from the surrounding arctic nature. His tones were willowherb pink, bilberry autumn foliage red or blueberry juice blue. During his artistic career, Reidar Särestöniemi made multiple experiments with different pigment techniques and went trough several different colour periods.

Reidar Särestöniemi had close family ties in the North reaching from the Ounasjoki riverbank in Kaukonen to the shores of the Arctic Ocean. The exhibition sheds light to Särestöniemi’s connections with the Norwegian Finmark, an area that also significantly influenced his art.
