The Nelimarkka Residence and Museum, the Regional Art Museum of Southern Ostrobothnia, Finland, complex are built by the artist Eero Nelimarkka in 1964, creating the opportunity for artists to work in a quiet environment where nature speaks.
Its main focus is on art education, but the museum is also responsible for research of Ostrobothnian art and has hosted an artist-in-residency program since mid 1980’s.
The Residency carries out Eero Nelimarkka’s long-term dream of having fine art in the countryside. Circa 10 artists live and work at the residency annually.
Nelimarkka Residency is looking for artists on all fields of visual arts.
A residency includes the use of a studio, shared common areas, and a private bedroom. The museum provides for internet access, kitchen utensils, towels, bedding and linens with an access to a laundry room and a bicycle to go around area. There are two housing facilities at the Nelimarkka residency: Villa Nelimarkka (2 bedrooms, 2 studios) situated 400m from the museum, 5 kilometres from Alajärvi city centre and Villa Väinölä (2 bedrooms, one studio), situated at the Alajärvi city centre.
The artist pays for their own material, living and travel expenses. A residency period is usually 1-3 months.
