“THE FLEA” graphic miniatures (deadline: 23.03.2020)

We invite you to participate in the exhibition “THE FLEA” organised by the association “Grafikas kamera” and Šiauliai County Povilas Višinskis Public Library, to be held from April 2020 in Šiauliai County Povilas Višinskis Public Library before continuing on to the following exhibition halls in Latvia until 2022: The Art Gallery “Romas dārzs” (the Roman garden), Daugavpils Rothko Art Centre, Liepaja (November, 2020).

For the eighth year running, the association “Grafikas kamera” is inviting artists working with various graphics techniques to share their creative ideas and latest miniature works.

            This year’s theme is dedicated to small insects - FLEAS – and is derived from the latvian folk expression “Everyone has their own fleas.” Everybody, including artists, has their personal quirks – positive and negative drives which help the creative process. Whereas in earlier generations artists shared a Bohemian lifestyle with their friends, now responsibility and survival skills are the order of the day, turning them into solitary oddballs. This exhibition will encourage artists to talk openly and non-judgementally about their weak points and to start the process of conquering their  “fleas”.

            Artists from Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and other countries are warmly invited to take part in the show to strengthen existing links and forge new friendships between artists and graphics studios from diverse lands. Viewers will have the wonderful opportunity to see what is shared and what differences are apparent between these creative personalities in terms of imagery and techniques.

            The 1st exhibition will be opened on the 9th of April in the exhibition hall of Šiauliai County Povilas Višinskis Public Library.
