Gallery Daugava has published a book BAIBA VEGERE.
BAIBA VEGERE`s (1948) artworks seem to be synonymous with pastels as this is her preferred and definining style and technique. As a student at the Art Academy in the late 1960s, she was already expressing herself in pastels despite the fact that pastel was uncommon, not being the ideal medium for the “austere style” that dominated the art scene at the time. Although there was interest in the formal aspects of painting, colour schemes and various techniques such as watercolor, pastel and tempera, young artists were always seeking their own style in art and finding their own way.
