“Traces” Exhibition in Finland

In May and June 2002, I had the great pleasure of having an exhibition called Traces with friends and colleagues Bonnie Jordan and Steven Dixon at the Pohjanmaan Museum’s Taidehalli (Art Hall) in Vaasa, Finland.

Please look at: TRACES, my site specifically about this exhibition.

We all travelled to Finland for this great event. Naturally, I was translator and guide in my birth country as we toured around. In Vaasa we met well-known printmaker Juha Tammenpää, who kindly showed us his wonderful work, and gave us a very interesting tour of the Vaasa Printmakers Shop (site is in Finnish). Other highlights of the Vaasa area were the ruin area of Old Vaasa and the Stundars outdoor museum.

A quick visit was made to the 775-year old city of Turku and its fascinating Aboe Vetus museum of history & archaeology.
