If you would like to participate in sharing creative things about where you live, tag your photos on Instagram or tweets on Twitter with #CreativeLithuania or #CreativeLocale. I'd love to see the creative side of every country! I'll share my favorite tweets and photos each month on social media and here on the blog.
Over the past couple of months I've been loving the Vilnius Art Academy (Vilnius Dailies Academija). When walking Baby ISO in his stroller we always stop by their outdoor art exhibit to check out the rotating pottery exhibits. We also head inside to their Titanikas Gallery (free entrance!) to check out whatever is currently on exhibit. So, for the Creative Lithuania post this month, I thought why not make this the focus.
The Vilnius Academy of Arts Outdoor Expo exhibits ceramics in front of the VDA Ceramics Creativity Center. Over the past few months the Outdoor Expo has shown pieces from seven contemporary Latvian ceramicists. I loved the intricate work by Inesa Brants (see photos 3-7 below - the top 2 photos are of an earlier exhibit by Mo Ceramics).
The photos below were of an ...interesting... exhibit located inside the lobby of VDA.
Japanese-Baltic Design Fair
Back in late October, the VDA hosted a Japanese-Baltic Design Fair to show the contrasting, yet collaboratory designs of Eastern and Western artists. I stopped by the Design Fair and was impressed by the simplicity of the Japanese designs. I loved it (especially the fish shirt pictured below). For more information visit their website.
Do you take advantage of shows and events at art schools?
