On Friday, December 1, at 6:00 PM, A-Gallery will open the jewellery art exhibition SPARK in the VAULT and on the WINDOWS, reflecting the moods and trends of 2023. The exhibition showcases 45 different artists and most of the work is presented for the first time ever. The exhibition is designed by sculptor Anna Mari Liivrand.
The annual exhibition is like a spark admits of all the shine that jewellery artists have created and continue to create. A spark concentrates all the light into one point and then scatters it tirelessly. Mere sparkle, which may seem like superficial glitter, sometimes becomes a source of great comfort.
A spark can freeze time, it becomes a wonderful moment in the uninterruptible flow of time. Eureka! Clarity and discovery... what every creative soul seeks. Finding it gives birth to something unique, something that brings peace to the soul, inspiring action.
On Wednesday, 7th of December at 6 pm Laurentsius will open his solo exhibition titled "AED" at Vaal Gallery. The exhibition will remain open until 13th of January.
Exhibition is supported by: the Cultural Endowment of Estonia.

On Thursday, December 7th, Urmas Lüüs will open his solo exhibition, titled "Man! God has created you out of nothing, and this is too often felt in your case" at Tütar Gallery.
Lüüs' exhibition focuses on the transformation of found materials and theatrical installativity. The staged environment finds one of its foundations in cemetery culture. Instead of approaching the individual's tragedy, Lüüs addresses the theme in much brighter tones, seeing departure from this world as a merging with the highest level of collectivity.

Evald Okas / Mari Roosvalt / Mara Ljutjuk
The exhibition features three generations of Estonian artists from the Okas family. Evald Okas (1915–2011) is an Estonian artist whose family included many other artistic people. Okas is known above all for his painting art that adheres to classical form, but his graphic series inspired by travels are equally important. Okas' production is characterized by color saturation, figurativeness and masterful use of lines, whether the subject of the description was everyday subjects, a portrait, a nude thesis or an urban or industrial landscape.

16.11.23 – 13.01.24
Everybody is probably beginning to realise that one era, one civilisation is about to end, and some still significant phenomena of today are quickly disappearing into the dustbin of history. People’s consciousness is also opening up, expanding. The new man sees the world as more compact, everything is connected with everything else. The new man knows that honesty, goodness and compassion are keys to wellbeing, health and happiness. Great changes are taking place in painting as well. The new, as always, comes through the back door, from aside, from above, from below. And then it has arrived and all changes. Instagram is one such back door. Kindred spirits can easily find one another, new friends, schools spring up as if by themselves. Some elitist journals and galleries no longer control the development of the art (of painting).
On Friday, 17 November at 5:00 p.m. Keiu Maasik will open her solo exhibition “Meadows of Change, a Place Called Home” in the monumental gallery of the Tartu Art House.
The exhibition is about life in virtual reality and reflects on the possibility that human life may move there in the future. It also deals with the fear that this could happen and what we as humans would lose as a result.
