Sixty-seven works of art representing forty-three contemporary painters and
sculptors from Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania will tour five major US cities
begining in January. The Baltic Art Exhibition will hold its world premiere
with a gala benefit at New York`s National Arts Club January 25, where it
will be on display until February 12.
From New York the exhibition will
travel to Washington, DC.In a choice of venues that may be fitting, given
the role of the International Monetary Fund in post-Soviet economics, the
exhibition will be hosted in the IMF`s Gallery March 9 through April 8.
Other cities on the tour are Chicago, Houston and Los Angeles.
An unprecedented exhibition of contemporary paintings and sculpture from the
three Baltic nations will give many viewers their first glimpse of Baltic
art`s irrepressible expression before and after regaining independence.
Exhibition is curated by New York based curator Barbara Crane.
Full- color, hard cover commemorative exhibition catalogues will be
available for $35 at each exhibition.
