Ars Auttoinen was founded in 2009 by two designers/artists, Teemu Salonen and Kati Joki. Ars Auttoinen is situated in the middle of the beautiful Finnish country side. The main purpose is to arrange interesting and influential exhibitions during the summer. Ars Auttoinen wants to be the place where visitors can relax and focus on art in a cosy atmosphere. They are also opening a residency in 2013.
