Jämsä is a vital art town. Our beautiful landscapes have inspired Finnish national artists, such as Eliel Saarinen and national poet Eino Leino, among others. The enchantment of the nature has not disappeared. Awesome pieces are created in the hands of local artists. Wood, felt, clay, metal, and old items become reshaped in competent hands. In Kivipankki Gallery and Atelier Veli Ähtävä you can find changing art exhibitions all year round. In summer, various small galleries and ateliers will open their doors. Every year Jämsä, the Felt Valley of Finland, celebrates its masters with an international felt exhibition.
