The exhibit “VISIONS” of two celebrated Lithuanian primitive artists Stefanija Katkevičienė (1926-2006) and Petronėlė Gerlikienė (1905-1979)

2007 March 30 @ 17:00 - 2007 April 28 @ 12:00

The exhibit “Visions” by the celebrated Lithuanian primitive artists Stefanija Katkevičienė (1926-2006) and Petronėlė Gerlikienė (1905-1979) was presented at the Museum. The artists took the artistic path being middle-aged and already living in the city. Both of them very sensitively feel the colours, however, they also totally ignore realistic proportions. The artists do not copy what they see in their surroundings, on the contrary, they interpret rural themes.

The organizers of the exhibition are „Lietuvos Aidas“ Gallery (Vilnius), Janina Monkutė-Marks Museum-Gallery and Virginija Katkevičiūtė. Art works by S. Katkevičienė exhibited at the Museum were on loan from “Lietuvos Aidas gallery” and Virginija Katkevičiūtė. Art works by P. Gerlikienė – from Lithuanian Art Museum and the National M.K. Čiurlionis Art Museum.
