Riitta nominated for Finland’s most prestigious art prize, Ars Fennica!

Major announcement from the Eyes as Big as Plates HQ this morning: Riitta has been nominated as one of  5 candidates for Ars Fennica,  the most prestigious art prize in Finland!

The Ars Fennica art award is made annually to one Finnish artist in recognition of distinctive artistic output of high merit. In addition to the prize, the award includes a catalogue of works by the winner and an exhibition tour of three Finnish art museums. The Ars Fennica is an internationally respected award and the biggest Finnish prize for visual art.

Just as these magical news are breaking,  Riitta’s website is unfortunately experiencing some difficulties due to hacking. Work is underway to sort the site out, but in the meanwhile, please find contact details along with a couple of images here.

Standing ovations from a very proud Karoline and other half of Eyes as Big as Plates, congratulations Riitta!
