Exhibition exchange with sister Muncipal library Panevežys from Lithuania

Disec3b1o Sin Tc3adtulo 18

The long-term cooperation with the sister library in Lithuania brings an exchange of exhibitions every spring. The aim is to present a local artist who stands out in his field and represents the creative and innovative soul of the nation.

The paintings of artist Arunas Revotas, who paints with coffee grounds, are on display in our library. His pictures are different, unusual and attract attention. He was born and raised in Panevežy.  Now he lives in Velžys, not far from Panevežy, where the library with which we are connected is located. He started painting with coffee in the spring of 2021. In 2022, he published a book of poems entitled With coffee through life. He equipped it with illustrations painted with coffee. The book reflects the author’s view on life and art.

Knjiga Arunas

Illustrator and pedagogue Nuša Jurjevič is presenting her work in Lithuania. The exhibition Where the dragons are at home is on display.  It  was the part of her master’s thesis, for which she received an award from the Academy of Fine Arts and Design of the University of Ljubljana. The exhibition is a series of sixteen illustrations depicting eight dragons from different geographical areas. They can be divided into illustrative diptychs, each dragon has two illustrations. One depicts the dragon as a creature of reality, drawn out of its natural context in a distinctly scientific manner, while the other depicts the same creature hiding in its natural habitat. The illustrations were created as the result of extensive research of the mythological origins of dragons. 


The presentation of customs, literature and art enriches and connects us. You can see other projects HERE.
