Dita Lūse. Solo exhibition "Amalgams of time"
24.10. - 28.11.2020

Dita Lūse. Solo exhibition "Amalgams of time".

While working on the artworks for this exhibition I have come to increasingly feel that the time of each and every one of us is personal and unique, and the collective, universal time is just an illusion. The present for each of us consists of reality, our future expectations, and memories of the past that flash across our mind, caused by some impulse. Immersion into the past and our memories, including inherited memories, is sometimes so powerful that they affect us visually more intensely than the visible reality in front of us.

Like the olfactory memory that lets one perceive the smells based on the memories of things experienced and sensed in the past, the visible image sometimes gives a similar impulse – while you look at some visual evidence you are carried away in your thoughts to some different place and time, and you may see a whole different scene or event in your mind and become lost in the labyrinths of thought.

Why are the middle-generation artists currently concerned with reflecting upon themselves and their past? One of the reasons might be that there is a new “phone” generation that has to a large extent lost their connection to the past. Perhaps artists intuitively percieve it and through their work are trying to create a bridge between the times when there was a cult of letters and family photo albums and the current age of instagram. It might be a nostalgia, understanding that this is the reality of our time, yet feeling sad for the bygone and experiencing sentiment for it.
Writing and receiving letters is a form of relationship that is almost entirely lost nowadays, yet it is a long-lasting testimony to relationships, something that contemporary relations can not substantiate in a tangible form. The letters are also an evidence of the time one person devotes to another. It is something we do not do nowadays, we allocate much less time to the other person. Our day-to-day communication is short, fractured, careless, time-saving, which can become a hindrance to the well-being and enjoyment of our relationship.

The central image of the exhibition is the relationships, the evidence that they have left and that still influence the descendants. Perhaps it is essential and beautiful to stop at times and look at the love of two young people, the winding path of life through the evidence they have left – letters, with signs of foxing, photos, that still have an impact on us and show us who we are are and where we come from.
For the inspiration of the exhibition there have been used authentic letters and photographs from the family archives.

The exposition is located on the first floor of the MuseumLV gallery.
The entrance ticket costs 5 Euros, the reduced admission is 2 Euros.

"#artifact#fifthcivilization". Annual international contest GRATA BALVA award 2020
12.09. - 17.10.2020

Annual international contest exhibition of MuseumLV gallery and cultural centre Grata JJ “GRATA BALVA” opens its doors to visitors and artists for the third time. Back in the spring, despite all the difficulties of the situation, more than 150 artists received an invitation from the gallery to prepare their works for the contest on theme “#artifact#fifthcivilization”. Professional artists from Latvia, France, Estonia, Lithuania, Russia, Belarus, China and England expressed their wish to take part in the project. Unfortunately, due to the current situation, the works of foreign authors could not arrive, therefore this year more than two hundred works of Latvian artists were supplemented by works of foreign colleagues from the fund of previous exhibitions of GRATA BALVA.

The GRATA prize is actually two prizes from the MuseumLV gallery fund, 500 Euros each. Representatives of the MuseumLV gallery choose their nominee based on the principle of a long-term, fruitful relationship between the gallery and the author and present the GRATA prize at the opening ceremony of the contest exhibition. Friends and colleagues of the Grata JJ cultural center, who have expressed their wish to support any of the participants in the competition, also award their prizes. The fate of the second GRATA prize is determined by the visitors of the exhibition, who can vote for their favorite works or art objects during the entire duration of the exhibition. The “Audience Choice Award” is awarded to the winner after summing up the results at the opening ceremony of the next exhibition at the gallery. In order to preserve the format of a fair vote, all paintings and art objects are presented with numbers without mentioning the names of the authors. Each spectator has the opportunity to award his vote to the work he chooses by indicating the number of the work on his ticket directly in the gallery, or online, by marking a photo of the work on the web page of MuseumLV and Grata JJ in the section “Blog – Grata Balva 2020 – works”. Authors’ works in other techniques and materials will also find their place in the exhibition, and moreover, each participant can exhibit one or two more thematically relevant works in order to enrich the personal context. A complete catalog of works is available at the MuseumLV web page, and all works are available for purchase. The sponsor of the GRATA award is company Grata Eco House, manufacturer of ecological houses. This year all the involved artists have been provided with canvases - either square - 40x40 cm or round – 40 cm in diameter. These are the artworks that will be judged.

“#artifact#fifthcivilization” is the name and theme of the contest exhibition of the 2020. The swift synergy of fundamental and applied sciences gives rise to various theories regarding the origin of the Universe, the formation of the planet Earth, the emergence and development of intelligent life and the possible civilizations that have existed before ours. How can we know if we are the first reflective creatures that live in this remote place – on the Planet Earth, which is situated in the Solar system, in the Orion sleeve of Milky Way galaxy, part of our Local galaxy group within the Virgo cluster, which is part of Laniakea superclaster within the Pisces-Whale supercluster complex, all that being a part of the Perseus-Pegasus Galactic Filament... Will we have the chance to find the answer to this question about our birthright within our lifetime? Or perhaps we are on a threshold of the next stage of our development, where completely different tasks will present themselves? We can not know the history of tomorrow, nor can we know what role we may assume within the next 24 hours. Only today is obvious, and only today we have the possibility to create an artefact to prove our existence in the history of our home and to leave it to our future selves, be it an identification mark, a sign of presence, a vivid stroke or a watercolor image. We define the day we live in and thus we proceed to the day called tomorrow, and claim our right to have another happy day on this planet. According to Marx Wartofsky, “an artefact is for the evolution of culture what a gene is for the biological evolution”.

We are grateful to friends and colleagues of the MuseumLV gallery and Grata JJ cultural center: sporting goods store chain “Sportland” and art supplies stores – Galerija “M6”, “Radošo Darbu Galerija”, “Vilhelms” and “Vilori”, who expressed a desire to support the participants of the competition with their prizes.

The exposition is located on both floors of the MuseumLV gallery.
The entrance ticket costs 5 euros, the reduced admission is 2 euros.

Exhibition "#4stages"
09.07.2020

The new exhibition “#4stages” by art gallery MuseumLV of Cultural Centre Grata JJ is devoted to the International Baltic Ballet Festival. The festival, that is organized by the extraordinary Latvian ballerina Lita Beiris, celebrates its 25th anniversary under the title “From Classics to Avant-garde” all around Latvia. This year the festival should have taken place from 12 March, 2020. But unfortunately the global quarantine has made its strict temporary adjustments, but as the summer has come, the country’s cultural life is reviving, and the optimism of the GRATA JJ team and love of art served as reliable shield and support during the period of universal self-isolation.

So, by organizing the exhibition, the creative team of the gallery MuseumLV demonstrates its perception of Latvian national ballet history as aesthetical pleasure.
The exposition explores the existence of two interrelated phenomena: the art of ballet, as a tool for creating magical worlds of fairy tales, myths and legends that give humanity the definitions of good and evil, black and white, love and hatred, and on the other hand, the phenomenon of ballet artists devoting their entire lives to this world by virtue of extraordinarily heavy physical, spiritual and emotional work. By means of designing the scenery of the space and using a series of visual exhibits, the “#4Stages” show provides all viewers with opportunity to immerse themselves fully into the backstage of the theater world. Visitors will be able to enjoy the solemn splendor of theatrical costumes and the sophistication of ballet tutus from the “Swan lake” ballet in the “grand hall” of the gallery’s theater, take a glance into impromptu “rehearsal hall”, watch a video of actual training and appreciate the importance of everyday workouts and discover the first of a kind video instruction movie “Classical Ballet Technique”, directed by Yakov Mirimov in 1946, which was created as a teaching tool for all the teachers of the Soviet ballet schools.

The second floor of the gallery is fully dedicated to four ballet theatricals featuring prominent ballerina Lita Beiris - Peter Tchaikovsky's “Sleeping Beauty”, Adolf Adan's “Giselle” and Morris Ravel's “Bolero”. The performance mood here is defined by the paintings of Dita Lūse, Kristīna Keire, Agnija Ģērmane, Ilze Laizāne, Ilze Preisa, Ieva Caruka and many other gallery artists, as well as young artists such as Eduards Dubrovskis, Aivis Pīzelis, Jana Nesteroviča, Ivans Mazeins, Anya Vero, Rita Uljanova and Dace Dēliņa-Lipska, Ieva Baumgarte, who have devoted their works to the theme of the exhibition.

The core of the exhibition is made up of the works of famous Latvian artists Ivars Heinrihsons, Irēna Lūse, Džemma Skulme, Anita Kreituse, Aleksejs Naumovs, Lidija Auza, Uldis Zemzaris, Juris Dimiters, Ieva Muzikante as well as ballet costumes and objects – both contemporary and valuable historical exhibits. The exhibition features props and ballet costumes from the personal collection of Ieva Immertreija, a ballet dancer, costume designer and the head of the Ballet Class Association. Ieva has acquired a wide-range art education in Latvia and abroad and today she participates in the “4stages” exposition as a high-end member offering unique ballet costumes that have been tailor-made according to her sketches.

The MuseumLV art gallery of the cultural center Grata JJ expresses its gratitude to all the artists who contributed to this project: Laine Kainaize, Linda Kozule, Gita Šmite, Eduard Zentsik, Elizabete Melbarzde, Aija Bāliņa, Zoja Geraskina, and to Ieva Immertreija personally for the equipment, costumes and active assistance in organizing the exhibition and the opening ceremony. We thank company “Ziedu Sēta” and Latvian National Opera and Ballet for the provided equipment.

The creative group of MuseumLV gallery expresses sincere gratitude and appreciation to the collectors who provided works of art from their own collections, among them: “The view on opera” by Zenta Logina and “Swedish park” by Maija Nora Tabaka from Zuzāns collection, paintings from Pēteris un Ilze Tērmanis collection and paintings, sketches and costumes from Lita Beiris collection.

Ilze Smildziņa. Solo exhibition "Somewhere right there"
29.02. 2020 – 31.03.2020

Most art lovers associate Ilze Smildziņa’s name with oil paintings of virtuosic clouds, which fill up infinitely vast space.

In her new solo exhibition, Ilze Smildziņa is loyal to her favorite technique and theme. Visitors will be able to view works created in the last two years. While looking at her paintings you get a sense of a moment that has just passed, the reality and the illusion of what is possible and impossible are intertwined. However, the realistic mannerism of the paintings makes one believe that this is a reflection of reality.

When asked about this project the artist says: “The title of the exhibition is related to the fact that I am still very much in the cloud theme. Right there. There are so many clouds, so many feelings I haven’t painted yet.

Somewhere - it is an undefined, nameless place, but still it’s a place we recognize. We've been there. So we continue looking for something and during this important process we fail to notice the simple joys of everyday life. Only when we take a moment to stop, the mind suddenly opens and we realize how much beautiful and noteworthy there are around us… and often we find it where the search began - right there.

Painting allows me to tell a story without using words. My artwork contains fragments of what I have seen and experienced in everyday life, but these scenes have been placed in a different reality, thus highlighting the story itself. The depicted stories can take place elsewhere, but the spaciousness and infinite space allow the viewer to interpret the story as they wish. The sense of space and freedom has a lot of meaning. The people depicted in my paintings are my friends, acquaintances or people I have accidentally met, who are all now brought into the stories I have created. Other times, the storyline changes in the work process and the event is transformed into something completely different. The imaginary world through which I want to actualize a theme or image may be relevant to me or the public at the time. The stories in my paintings have a free space that allows each viewer to create their own scene.

Ilze Smildziņa has a master's degree in painting from the Latvian Academy of Art in a figurative workshop and a master's degree in printmaking. The artist has had several solo exhibitions in Latvia and Lithuania, as well as participated in various local and foreign group exhibitions and art competitions, including ArtParis art exhibition, representing Saatchionline Art Gallery (2011), 6th Beijing International Art Biennale (2015, 2019), Paint One Another Know One Another” exhibition in Beijing (2016), Art Gemini finalist exhibition in London (2017, 2018), as well as art symposiums in France, Belarus, Finland, India and Cyprus. Ilze's artwork is featured in private collections in Canada, Belgium, France, Sweden, Germany, Ireland, the United States, Belarus and Latvia, the National Association of Chinese Artists and the Luciano Benetton Collection.

Aleksejs Naumovs (LV), Vilen Künnapu (EST). Exhibition "Place. Image. Energy"
12.01. 2020 - 22.02.2020

Aleksejs Naumovs ir izcils gleznotājs, Vilens Künnapu – viens no ievērojamākajiem Igaunijas arhitektiem, kurš savā rādošajā darbībā ir pievērsies arī glezniecībai . Šajā projektā Alekseja Naumova un Vilena Künnapu interešu lokā ir arhitektūra, kā vietas un formas iemiesotāja un glezniecība, kurā krāsa ir sižets un tēls. Enerģiju mākslinieki uzņem no vides, transformējot caur savu personību, tā tiek materializēta un nodota skatītāju vērtējumam. Krāsas un vides formu attiecības veido izstādes iekārtojuma pamatideju.
Darbi ir tapuši sadarbībā, gleznojot plenērā daudzās pasaules valstīs. Bieži abu mākslinieku radošā sinerģija ir burtiska - izvēlētas kopīgas glezniecības vietas.

Mākslinieki satikās Latvijā, Užavas plenērā. "Vieta. Tēls. Enerģija" ir jau trešā abu autoru kopīgā izstāde, kas šoreiz notiek Rīgā, Kultūras centra Grata JJ mākslas galerijā MuseumLV. Iepriekš bija izstādes Tallinā "Fahle" galerijā un Losandželosā "Venice Beach".
Kā papildinājums abu autoru gleznām un skicēm aplūkojams arī telpisks objekts "Tornis", kuru īpaši šim projektam ir radījuši Vilens kunnapu un Aleksejs Naumovs. Objekts izgatavots un uzstādīts ar kultūras centra GrataJJ mākslas galerijas MuseumLV atbalstu. Tornis, vai precīzāk stupa, ir tīra mākslas Enerģija, kurai nav robežu. Torņa sūtība ir apsargāt, aizstāvēt, ģenerēt, sadalīt un dāvāt mums radošo enerģiju, cerību, gaismu un kopīgu viedumu.

Alekseja Naumova (1955) vārds Latvijā ir labi zināms. Viņa ekspresīvās, plenērā ala prima gleznotās, krāsās krāšņās lielformāta ainavas guvušas arī plašu starptautisku atzinību. 2017. gadā notika vērienīga Alekseja Naumova personālizstāde Latvijas Nacionālajā mākslas muzejā. Kopumā sarīkotas vairāk kā sešdesmit personālizstādes, kā arī notikuši neskaitāmi kopprojekti Latvijā un ārvalstīs – piemēram, ASV, Indijā, Ungārijā, Krievijas Federācijā, Baltkrievijā, Šveicē, Somijā, Itālijā, Zviedrijā, Apvienotajā Karalistē, Francijā, Portugālē…

Pilnībā pārvaldot seno tehniku, Naumovs gleznojis freskas daudzās pasaules pilsētās. Māksliniekam tuvas ir arī grāmatu ilustrācijas - šogad Aleksejs Naumovs bija prestižās Bratislavas ilustrāciju biennāles žūrijas loceklis un tika ievēlēts par tās prezidentu.

Kā pedagogs Aleksejs Naumovs strādā Latvijas Mākslas Akadēmijā kopš 1985. gada, bet no 2007. - 2017. bija šīs augstskolas rektors.

Arhitekts Vilens Künnapu (1948) projektējis daudzus nozīmīgus objektus Igaunijā un Skandināvijas valstīs, piedaloties starptautiskos konkursos, ticis apbalvots - Arctic Centre, Rovaniemi, Finland, 1984; West Coast Gateway, Los Angeles, USA,1988; Marja-Vantaa planning, Finland, 1992.

"Kad es projektēju mājas, es jūtos kā gleznotājs, kad es gleznoju, es jūtos kā arhitekts. Es izbaudu abus šos procesus”, saka mākslinieks. Arī Künnapu arhitektūras darbos un instalācijās liela nozīme ir krāsai. Künnapu skulptūras, telpiskie objekti un instalācijas eksponēti tādās nozīmīgās arhitektūras izstādēs kā Taiwan Design Expo 2005, Venice Biennale 2006, 2008, London Festival of Architecture, 2010

Kā gleznotājs Vilens Künnapu piedalās izstādēs kopš 2013. gada.

Arī pedagoģiskā darbība saista abus māksliniekus - Vilens Künnapu ir profesors Tallinas un Tartu universitātēs kā arī viesojas Skandināvijas valstu augstskolās kā vieslektors.

Juris Dimiters. Personālizstāde "Mana laika zīmes"
22.11.2019. – 04.01.2020.

Jura Dimitera jaunajā personālizstādē "Mana laika zīmes" skatītājiem būs iespēja izsekot līdzi leģendārā mākslinieka interešu lokam un viņa daudzpusīgajai radošajai darbībai no 60- to gadu beigām līdz šim brīdim.

Dimitera glezniecība, grafikas, fotogrāfijas, plakāti un tēlniecība iezīmē īpašus vēstures pieturas punktos, ko visa sabiedrība ir pārdzīvojusi laikā un telpā, kas vienlaikus ir arī dziļi individuāli māksliniekam un katram no mums. Paradoksi, metaforas, asprātības - bijušu parādību nebijušas kombinācijas ir Dimitera laika zīmes.

Dimiters ir gleznotājs, kura mākslas metafiziskā noskaņa atklājas gan ar filigrānu tehnisko meistarību, gan ar humoru un dažkārt - nesaudzīgi dzēlīgu ironiju. Šī iezīme saglabājas arī Jura Dimitera veidotajos sociālajos, politiskajos un teātra plakātos, kurus arī varam apskatīt izstādē. Sākot ar Brežņeva stagnācijas laika parādību atmaskojumu ļoti rietumnieciskā skatījumā līdz skarbam mežonīgā kapitālisma portretam, ironijai par globalizācijas procesiem, partiju melīgajiem saukļiem, kas brīvības un neatkarības idejas upurē uz zelta teļa altāra.

Būtisks Jura Dimitera darbības virziens ir teātra scenogrāfija. Savas ilggadējās karjeras laikā Dimiters ir bijis scenogrāfs sava laika kulta izrādēm Dailes teātrī – Ādolfa Alunāna lugai “Džons Neilands" un pēc Artura Konana Doila romāna veidotajai izrādei "Šerloks Holmss" – padarot tās par XX gadsimta otrās puses teātra mākslas zelta klasiku. Skatuves priekškars ir kļuvis par vienu no tēliem mākslinieka gleznās, plakātos un grafikās, liekot šaubīties par visa notiekošā viennozīmību un patiesumu un nopietnību.

Izmantojot mūsdienu tehniskās iespējas, Juris Dimiters meistarīgi veido digitālos darbus. Kā īstens postmodernists, Dimiters citē pats sevi un operē ar pasaules vēstures un kultūras jēdzieniem.

Juris Dimiters dzimis 1947. gadā un pārstāv jau trešo Skulmu dzimtas paaudzi, kura, radoši darbojoties, uzstādījusi augstu latiņu Latvijas mākslai. Mākslinieka vecāki - gleznotāja Džemma Skulme un aktieris Artūrs Dimiters, bet vecvecāki - gleznotājs Oto Skulme (1889–1967) un tēlniece Marta Liepiņa-Skulme (1890–1962).

Juris Dimiters Latvijas Mākslas Akadēmijā ieguvis scenogrāfa specialitāti 1973. gadā. Kopš tā laika Dimiters aktīvi darbojas kā gleznotājs un scenogrāfs, bijis viens no īpašās Rīgas plakāta skolas veidotājiem. Autora darbi atrodas Latvijas Nacionālā mākslas muzeja, topošā Latvijas Laikmetīgās mākslas muzeja, Latvijas Mākslinieku savienības muzeja krājumā, Valsts Tretjakova galerijā Maskavā, Ludviga Modernās mākslas muzejā Ķelnē, Kremona fondā Merilendā, Ņūorleānas Mākslas muzejā, Nensijas un Nortona Dodžu kolekcijā, Zimmerli Mākslas muzejā Ņūbrunsvikā, kā arī privātkolekcijās Latvijā, ASV, Krievijā, Vācijā, Zviedrijā u.c.

Plakāta jomā gūti starptautiski apbalvojumi, ir sarīkotas personālizstādes daudzās Eiropas valstīs un ASV. 2017. gadā Latvijas Nacionālā mākslas muzejā notika Jura Dimitera personālizstāde "Priekškara paslēpes”.

Juris Jurjāns. Solo exhibition "Love Recital"
12.10. - 13.11.2019

No 12.10 – 13.11. kultūras centra GrataJJ mākslas galerija MuseumLV Juris Jurjāns. Personālizstāde "Mīlestības vēstījums"

Juris Jurjāns piedāvā skatītājiem vēl neredzētus darbus un jau iemīļotas gleznas, kas ekspozīcijā veido jaunu kontekstu. Daudzi no izstādītajiem darbiem pārstāv mākslinieka daiļrades zelta fondu. Skatītājam ir iespēja satikt Juri Jurjānu 1972. gadā gleznotajā pašportretā un sekot līdzi aizraujošam stāstam par gleznotāja tapšanu un likteni.
Jura Jurjāna māksla ir kā ekskluzīvs dzēriens, kas ar gadiem kļūst aizvien vērtīgāks un rodot sevī jaunas garšas nianses, ko var baudīt īsts mākslas pazinējs. Gleznotāju interesē dzīvība, viņa mākslas vadmotīvs ir mīlestība, kas ir gradācijām bagāta un visu aptveroša. Juris Jurjāns ir estēts dzīvē un mākslā. Zelts mākslinieka rokās dod citu jēgu ikdienišķām lietām, paceļot tās sakrālā līmenī. Putni, ziedi, daiļas sievietes, mīlētāji, saule, mēness – zelts un sudrabs – realitāte iemirdzas jaunā gaismā, viņa radītā pasaule ir estētiska, tomēr arī ekspresīva un dinamiska. Zelta mirdzums ir atslēga uz Jura Jurjāna mākslu.

Izstādē satiksimies ar Jurjāna alter ego – nerru, kas ar ironiju stāsta par vienu no mākslinieka lomām sabiedrībā. Arī šoreiz visur esoša ir pūce, kas dažkārt ir pašportrets, bet citreiz simbolizē nepieradināto, mežonīgo, vārdos neaprakstāmo cilvēka esības daļu. Pūce parastā ir mākslinieka sargeņģelis.

Juris Jurjāns ir dzimis 1944. gadā. Pēc studijām Jaņa Rozentāla mākslas vidusskolā un Latvijas Mākslas Akadēmijā, glezniecībā sevi spoži pieteicis jau 70 – tajos gados. LMA profesors Jurjāns, darbojoties pedagoģijas jomā, ir palīdzējis atrast savu ceļu mākslā daudziem jaunajiem censoņiem un turpina to darīt, sekojot līdzi savu skolnieku gaitām, neliedzot padomu un atbalstu.

Ieeja izstādē ir bezmaksas.

Starptautisks projekts - "Sāls pieskariens"
25.09.2019. – 26.10.2019.

No 25.09.2019 – 26.10. 2019 Kultūras centra Grata JJ mākslas galerijas MuseumLV, 2. stāvā apskatāms starptautisks multimediāls mākslas projekts “Sāls pieskāriens”.

“Mūsu projekts kā sāls pieskāriens lūpām, kaislīgs, bet sirdij sāp jaunās pasaules pragmatisms.”

“Sāls pieskāriens” attīstās kā starpnacionāls projekts – dažādu tradīciju, pasaules redzējuma mākslinieku dialogs ar melnbaltā foto pasauli un sievietes tēla atainojumu laikmetīgajā mākslā.

Pasaule mainās. Sievietes tēls vairs nav vajadzīgs sabiedrībai, kā garīguma un skaistuma objekts. Sievietes tēls kalpo marketingam, reklāmai. Kultūra ir miera vēstnesis, kas apvieno cilvēkus radošās darbības procesā. Mākslinieki no dažādām valstīm, kopā strādājot pie vispārcilvēciskām tēmām, risinot pasaulei aktuālus jautājumus, runājot mākslas valodā - veido milzīgu pozitīvo spēku.

Starptautiskajā izstādē “Sāls pieskāriens” piedalās mākslinieki no Latvijas, Lietuvas, Igaunijas, Krievijas – apvienojot dažādus izteiksmes veidus - fotogrāfiju, glezniecību, grafiku, instalācijas, performances.

Projekta pirmā izstāde notika 2018.gada novembrī Lietuvā “Laiptu” galerijā, Šauļos. Pēc Rīgas plānota izstāde arī Maskavā un Turcijā, kur projektā iesaistīsies arī vietējie mākslinieki.

Ieva Caruka, projekta idejas autore, stāsta: “Mani vienmēr ir vilinājusi melnbaltās fotogrāfijas pasaule, kur realitāte kļūst lakoniskāka, skaidrāka, bet tajā pašā laikā ir noslēpumaina.”

Apmeklējot Antanas Sutkus izstādi Rīgā, es jutu, ka melnbaltā foto māksla ievelk citā realitātē. Toreiz radās spēles ideja: iedvesmoties savā radošajā darbībā nevis no reālās pasaules, bet rast iedvesmu, skatoties uz pasauli car melnbaltā foto prizmu.

Projekts aizsākās 2017.gadā Šauļos, Lietuvā, starptautiskajā mākslas plenērā, kur iepazinos ar fotomākslinieku Alvydas Šalkauskas un viņa darbiem, kas deva man iedvesmu radīt zīmējumu ciklu. Alvidasa galvenie varoņi - gaismas spēle tumsā un sieviete. Šī tēma man kā sievietei ir tuva.
Mūsu Lietuvas-Latvijas radošajam tandēmam pievienojās Maskavas māksliniece Diana Arslanova, kuras mākslas ekspresīvajā pasaules skatījumā ir jūtamas etniskās saknes senajā Baškīrijas kultūrā.

Andrus Joonas – izcilais performanču meistars, multimediāls mākslinieks no Igaunijas - stāsta savu stāstu par zūdošām vērtībām sabiedrībā.

Jaunā māksliniece Santa Sava dialogu ar Alvidasu risina, veidojot telpisku objektu.

Starptautiskā projekta dalībnieki:
Ieva Caruka, Latvija
Santa Sava, Latvija
Alvydas Šalkauskas, Lietuva
Diana Arslanova, Krievija
Andrus Joonas, Igaunija

Gita Šmite. Solo exhibition "I Am"
06.09.2019. – 05.10.2019.

On September 6, a solo exhibition ‘I Am’ by the painter Gita Šmite will be opened at the gallery Museum LV.
This time alongside with her latest paintings, some older works will be also displayed, even the ones created during her studies at the Latvian Academy of Art. Altogether the collection will present a sophisticated story of a woman’s life and its values.
It is exciting to realise what has happened in the last 25 years and what changes have taken place. The children once portrayed have grown up. The princess's chair is replaced by a bathhouse bunk; instead of beads and glitches there is a crown of flowers or a mop of gray hair. The beautiful models have dropped their festive dresses and now are just simple women. Moreover, they are not abstract, but truly real – from Kolka, from Riga.
Gita Šmite is a graduate of the stand-painting department of the Latvian Academy of Art under professor Imants Vecozols and the painting masterclass of Vilis Ozols. She has taken part in exhibitions since 1995. Has held more than 12 solo exhibitions and has designed costumes for the theatre performances. She is the author of a unique brand -‘Bathhouse Art’.

At the opening of the exhibition, there will be handing of the audience award prize from the project GRATA BALVA which took place at the gallery during the summer.
The exhibition “I am” at the gallery Museum LV will be on display till October 5.

The entrance to the exhibition is free

Project "GRATA AWARD" "Source of power"
06. 06. 2019. – 25.07. 2019.

The project “GRATA AWARD”, organized by the art gallery MuseumLV of Culture centre GrataJJ's, is the grand summer contest exhibition, which has already become a tradition and calls to participate professional artists, the quality of whose work meets the standards of the gallery.

Grata Award in visual arts has two monetary prizes, 500 € each. One of the winners is selected by representatives of the gallery and experts' committee, while the other will be decided by the visitors of the exhibition, who will have the opportunity to vote for their favourite artwork.

The patron of Grata award is the manufacturer of ecological houses Grata Eco House.

This year all the involved artists have been provided with canvas of the same size - 40x40 cm, to create a work especially for the contest, and these are the artworks that will be judged. Each artist has the chance to exhibit one or two thematically fitting works to create a context for the competition works that help to represent artists personality. The artworks will be exhibited without indicating the artists' names, until the very end of voting.

Exhibition occupies both floors of the gallery MuseumLV.

The theme of the contest of 2019 is the “Source of power”. Source of power is something that exists in the nature and is connected with underground world and water. A source of water connects two worlds. A spring of water brings refreshment. We can view the source of power as a metaphor – the very origin of artwork creation. It is something that, originating in depth, brings us vitality; it is something we can return to again and again to rejuvenate. Our uniqueness is revealed by the diversity of our roots, the very soil where they stem from is different and the source of power is unique for each of us, for the water varies, it is full of energy and inspiration and we ourselves change and are different every time we return to the source.

Vita Merca. Solo exhibition "Atklājot gaismu"
25.04.2019 - 01.06.2019

No 2019.gada 25.aprīļa – 2019. gada 1. jūnijam Kultūras centra Grata JJ mākslas galerijas MuseumLV pirmajā stāvā būs skatāma Vitas Mercas personālizstāde “Atklājot gaismu”.


Vitas Mercas izstādē būs eksponēti mākslinieces jaunākie darbi, kas tapuši gan plenēros, gan strādājot darbnīcā, kur izmantoti dabā gūtie iespaidi.
Arī šajā projektā Vita Merca ir uzticīga savam koloristes aicinājumam glezniecībā – šķietamais trauslums, atraisītība, gandrīz akvareliskais eļļas klājums, caurspīdigais gaismas tvērums apvienojas ar dziļiem un grūtiem neatmināmā un mākslas jēgas meklējumiem, neatvieglojot sev uzdevumu ar jau atklātu glezniecības triku izmantošanu.
Māksliniecei nozīmīga vienmēr ir bijusi gaisma visās tās izpausmēs un attiecībās ar doto realitāti. Ar gaismas brīnumainās dabas atklājumiem Vita Merca dalīsies arī izstādē “Atklājot gaismu”.
Vita Merca – dzimusi 1951. gadā, LMA bijusi viena no profesora Eduarda Kalniņa skolniecēm, darbojusies arī kā mākslas pedagoģe. Mākslas ainā sevi spoži pieteikusi jau 70 – to gadu beigās. Kopš tā laika māksliniece pilnveido savu neatkārtojamo stilu, pārsteidzot skatītājus ar aizvien jaunu glezniecisko skatījumu uz lietu dabu. Mākslinieces darbus gribētos salīdzināt ar izsmalcinātu kamermūziku – klasiskas klusās dabas un ainavas stāsta par visnozimīgāko, tomēr to uztvere prasa iedziļināšanos un iekšējo klusumu.

Ieeja izstādē ir bezmaksas.

Vivita Zuzule. Solo exhibition "My Transformations"
17.04.2019 – 18.05.2019.

Vivita Zuzule
Exhibition "My Transformations"


The exhibition will feature paintings painted on oil for many years, in which the artist plays with color, shape and symbols, showing the feelings and emotional state of the moment. The artist likes to focus on different genres of painting art: landscape, still life, portrait, not changing the means of artistic expression.

The artist's paintings are reflections of her soul, in which she reflects her inner experiences, adventures, self-seeking and many dialogues with herself, which helps to better understand the world around her.

In her painting, the artist focuses on exploring the feminine essence and searching for symbols, reflecting on various images of women in which the artist turns and sees a similarity with herself. For her works, the artist says: "In my paintings I can turn into anything - a famous singer or actress, a lost shoe or a girl from an ancient African tribe, or my daughter."

The artist likes symbolism, so she is looking for the relationships that match the artist's life.

The artist's paintings include both retrospective memories and impressions of the moment. Anyone who will look at the artist's paintings, perhaps, will also be influenced by his life experience and will only see what he knows and experiences.

The artist believes that man will be eternally alive if he leaves the spiritual continuation of his physical end - existence.

Vivita Zuzule was born in Jurmala in 1960. The artist says: "As far as I can remember myself, my childhood was in the world of color and fantasy, my sixth finger was my trusted brush or pencil.
Direction and interest in art was inspired by the great library of art and culture history books and numerous art exhibitions, admiring the most outstanding Latvian artists.”

Graduating from high school, the path to art continued in private artist studios with prominent artists: V. Bush, A. Bromults, A. Plaudis, G. Binde. All these artists gave the young artist an impulse to join the Latvian Academy of Art, which he graduated in the late 1980s, completing the Department of Pedagogy at the Latvian Academy of Arts.

The first work experience related to art, the artist worked in Jurmala as an artist/designer, later worked in Riga's Main Architectural Office, as well as in Jūrmala Pumpuri Secondary School as a visual art teacher.

The first personal exhibition took place in 2003 in Jurmala, at the Luda Berzins Museum.

The artist is fascinated by work with children, has been leading the art studio for many years in Riga.

Mareks Gurecskis. Solo exhibition "Sound prints"
08.03.2019 – 13.04.2019.

From 9 March 2019 - 13 April 2019 – in Grata JJ cultural center in the second floor of art gallery MuseumLV the personal exhibition of Mareks Gureckis "Sound Prints" can be seen.

The works of the recent years testify Mareks Gureckis’ trust in painting as an art category, where narrative fits closely with an aesthetics. Passion for the beautiful in shape and matter embodies the author’s desire to work again and again with his favourite motifs - piano and print textures.

"The footprints left by the sound vibrate on the head, in the heart, in the hands for long time. Similar to the piano strings, they continue to fill the space when the sound itself has long gone. The painter leaves imprints in the art, shaking up the perception and senses of the viewer. It is a sense of the distance, a sense of the world that sounds through the paintings"- the artist says about his works.

Marek Gureckis' painting is characterized by a passion for colour and light, which is worshiped by the artist as the god dwelling in planes and lines.

Dmitry Lavrentyev. Solo exhibition "The equilibrium time"
08.03.2019 – 13.04.2019.

08.03.2019 - 13.04.2019 Dmitry Lavrentjev dedicated his latest exposition to the subject of the eternal, unceasing movement of Time, exploring the endless becoming of creativity.

The artist is interpreting the summing-up within an open space of values which constructs the balance in the way the living organism is being constructed. In this context, the summing-up should be understood as the simple shifting of accentuation by means of which the author can investigate the nature of this space and its values.

The themes and motifs of the works presented here are drawn towards generalized formulae, and the craving for the conclusion is amazingly combined with the sophisticated masterly when it comes to the linear drawing, choice of texture and dynamics of colour.

The imagery contains the metaphors of the transformation of Time and the break-through of the forms and signs into the Future.
The Equilibrium Time is a metaphysical diary, an introspection welcoming endless points of view.

And yet an artist is forever right, isn't he?

Eduard Zentsik. Solo exhibition "Soul"
25.01.2019 – 02.03.2019.

Eduard Zentsik is a prolific Estonian-based artist of many faces. He’s developed radically different artistic personas, refusing to link his name to a single signature style, technique, or theme. Instead, Zentsik mixes genres and media and playfully subverts the traditions of old.

Zentsik’s oeuvre is as enormous as it’s diverse. Some of his endeavors, like the mildly macabre art brut series, focus on physical metamorphoses and flourishes of the flesh. Others, like the highly symbolic paintings made in the surrealistic canon, accentuate the spiritual aspects of his philosophy. Elsewhere, the artist indulges in formless Pollockian color drippings or flirts with digital media.
Zentsik’s paintings contain an open-ended space, a distinctly magical reality where entities, artifacts, and concepts from seemingly arbitrary eras and cultures serve their enigmatic purpose. No mythology or esoteric teaching is immune to the artist’s tactful manipulations - Zen in Zentsik goes hand in hand with Tao, Krishna, Christ, and the Twelve Olympians.

This is not an intellectual game, though. Those willing to unlock the code are likely (and welcome) to reveal metaphysical depths. Some may find his work pretentious, but Zentsik is not afraid to use self-aware decorative strategies and deceptively simple tropes to convey big ideas. Behind the images, there is a powerful coherent cosmology explaining the underlying natural order, the ulterior essence of everything. This is true spiritual art with a transcendental message, ostensibly co-created and inhabited by the spirit of the Creation itself (all artworks have always existed, you know). Zentsik’s mission, therefore, is to cut open two-way windows between our world and the fantastical realm through which mystical figures and phenomena on the other side meet our gaze. Aren’t these the proverbial Platonic ideas represented on canvas in vaguely familiar forms?
Eduard Zentsik was born 26.12.1975 in Sillamae, Estonia.
Painter, photographer, graphic artist, designer, author of installations, performances and musical improvisations. Organizer of youth exhibitions and projects. For over years of creativity had more than a hundred personal exhibitions and took part in numerous joint projects. Participant and winner of international Photographic and Art competitions. Numerous works are in private collections around the world.

Educational group exhibition. "KINSHIP SCRIPTS"
21.06.2018 – 25.08.2018

Art gallery MuseumLV and culture centre GrataJJ began its venture on 26th of May 2017 by organizing two major visual art exhibitions that manifested the gallery’s beliefs about their peers’ art in all its various forms. Further on, this generation of artists, that had formed after the regaining of the independence of Latvia, brought their parents and children to the gallery. A subsequent interest about ancestry and descendants in art emerged - where do we come from, how do we continue onwards. The exhibition ‘’Kinship scripts” is a respectful gift that the MuseumLV team presents to its viewers and artists at the celebration of the 100th anniversary of Latvia, thus honouring the history of the lineages and the country, contemplating the inheritability of genes and believing in the power of people’s spirit.

KINSHIP SCRIPTS
Kinship scripts...This notion reminds of the highly popular digitalised data archive that is prominent among historians, however this time it is the title of a unique exhibition. It is an exhibition, that unites its artists for their significant quality – they all belong to artist families and/or acclaimed artist dynasties.

The title of the exhibition reminds of one of the current actualities of our society – the interest regarding the history of one's family, the relations between the members of dynasties among themselves and with the surrounding society in time and space. Exploring kinship often reveal wonderful stories and surprising family bonds. These revelations are significant to more than one family or bloodline...

We all come from childhood, from our family. It is where the foundation for our personality and the future life is laid, it is where the marvellous sense of belonging originates from, which can (and often does) transform into other forms of belonging – to one's lineage, land and country, thus becoming the guarantee of the future of the nation.

The inheritability of the artistic gene is well known in the history of world culture, and it is worth mentioning that occasionally the reviews of these specific manifestations may invite the venomous remark “nature takes a break on the children of geniuses”, or some similar but necessarily grumpy and withering comment. This inference has spawned in time when the fundamental quality in the evaluation of artworks was the resemblance, moreover – apparently high likeliness to a work of a prominent artist of that specific time. And what happens if a son is unable to comply with the boundaries drawn by the father? Then comes the line about taking a break…

There are many artist lineages in the 150 years brief history of professional art in Latvia that are well known. I will mention only a few surnames of this lengthy and interesting list – families of Annuss, Brekte and Cēsnieks, Ģērmanis, Iltners and Jurjāns, Rozentāls and Skulme, Stārasts, Strunke and Zariņš and so on…

Of course, there have been examples of exhibitions dedicated to particular artist dynasties in Latvian art. The exhibition “Kinship scripts”, however, aims to deliver a different perception, reminding of inheritability as a unique characteristic of our art history. Of course, not every lineage is represented here, however, the exhibition offers an idea of the vast amount and diversity of these bloodlines.
Undeniably, the exhibition will trigger questions that are yet to be answered. One of these issues is about artists that are twins. How intriguing: they are remarkably similar, they have grown up side by side, but they are nothing alike in art.

Especially significant is the fact that the exhibition enables one to verify that in the 20th century and even more so nowadays, already in the 21st century, the inheritability of art traditions can no longer be related to the repetition of formal or other qualities. Every artist develops and works as an independent person, which, whilst in awe for the art of their father or great-grandfather, follows the course lead by his own time and desires.

Agate Apkalne. Solo exhibition "Sorrow of the soul"
11.10.2018 - 10.11.2018.

Painter Agate Apkalne's latest works are united in a cycle called "Sorrow of soul". This title entails plenty of widely interpretable information, much like our conscious thoughts are only a little shell around that energy and force which pertain to the irrational and subconscious sources of human psyche.


In her new cycle, the artist takes the viewer to the depths of her personality, where storms interchange with serenity and quiet, melancholy with harmony, endless pursuits with joyful moments of revelation. The cycle can be perceived as a journey, permitting to explore oneself, whilst keeping in mind the Freudian concept that self-exploration changes a person. The hyperrealistic, virtuosic, psychologically and semantically saturated style of Agate Apkalne supposedly has not changed, as it welcomes its viewers, however the colouristics of "Sadness of soul" has leaned towards monochromic nuances and the paintings express their narratives through more laconic and powerful symbols. The motifs and characters can be found within this world – in the sky, water and within the inner circle of friends, however they can also be visions of spiritual experience, for example, the well known iconographic duel with a dragon or inner demons, the encounter of consciousness and subconsciousness, the Milky way as a road home – the whole life.

A witty and innovative aproach to the traditional technique of oil painting can be observed in some of the works of the cycle, for example, altering the surface of the painting with a tiny drill as well as the consistent usage of the dry brush. The display of works is complemented by digital prints, in which the artist reveals her pleasure to watch the play of light and its potential to reflect on the mutual bonds of people. The exposition entails a video made by Kristaps Kemlers, created on the basis of the dyptich painting "Gallery of the Universe".

The author can tell her gripping personal story about each painting of this substantial exhibition. However, she prefers the viewers to perceive, comprehend and immerse into the artwork according to one’s wishes and power of imagination. She admits: "For me the "Sadness of soul" is one thing, yet it may be a completely different thing to other person. In this cycle I have thought a lot about forgiveness and gratefulness. Everything that we require in our life has already been given to us, it is our hope chest, so often contemplated and sung about in folklore. We just are not able to appreciate it. The painting "Road to home" is like my whole life. Every single star is as a huge gratitude to everyone that has come into my life. In the painting I have materialised my thoughts about the people that I have interfered with. We are all connected and we do not exist without each other. With each our action in the given moment we change our mutual future."

Agate Apkalne lives, works and passes her skills on to her students in Latvia, however her paintings have encountered their viewers more often in Germany and elsewhere in Europe – in the solo and group exhibitions organised by Berline "TVDART Galerie". She has studied art in the Riga School of Design and Art, as well as in the Department of Graphic art in the Art Academy of Latvia, which she graduated in 2005, acquiring Master’s degree. Agate Apkalne has participated in exhibitions since 2000, with her previous solo show being "Private Space" in Riga and Liepāja in 2015.
