Galleria Sculptor is an artist-run contemporary art gallery located in the Helsinki city center and maintained by the Association of Finnish Sculptors. Its diverse exhibition program presents a wide range of cutting-edge art every year, with a special focus on contemporary sculpture art. The exhibitions are principally innovative and surprising, challenging the viewer to see things differently. The association organizes also events and exhibitions outside the gallery. In the summer of 2019, a major public art exhibition “Sculpture Expanded – moving laboratory of public art” was held in Helsinki. Throughout the summer the exhibition showcased artworks by 10 artists/artist collectives in 32 changing locations all around the city of Helsinki.

Galleria Sculptor, run by The Association of Finnish Sculptors, is mainly focused on contemporary Finnish sculpture, but it also makes room for artists from foreign countries and from different fields of art.
At Supermarket Art Fair 2013 Galleria Sculptor will present some of the most innovative Finnish artists: Petri Eskelinen, Andy Best & Merja Puustinen, Anne Meskanen-Barman, Hilda Kozari and Heli Ryh.nen. These artists will bring to the fair an interesting variety of modern Finnish sculpture using different, alternative and experimental materials and means of expression: scents and fragrances, beeswax, sand and earth, and participatory installations.
