Opening of the Exhibition Days of Art in Rietumu Bank, Rietumu Capital Centre, 7 Vesetas Street

Rietumu Capital Centre, 7 Vesetas Street

Three young painters that have already been noticed and highly appreciated. In their works we see realism, figures and portraits. They are not afraid of difficult subjects but are fascinated by them. Man and environment, urbanised environment and nature, and again, nature as environment, not a landscape. Man is present everywhere: his thoughts, feeling of life and sense of rhythm – the rhythm of heart, breath, steps and days.

Mārīte Guščika (1980), Flēra Bīrmane (1983), Lauris Mīlbrets (1979)

First of all, it is a good craftsmanship we can’t help seeing in their work. They are brilliant at drawing and they are aware of the opportunities that painting techniques offer. They are keen on experimenting and surprising. It proves that the world of painting is vast and rich and promises revelations to every creative person. The viewers and art lovers are enticed in it. Days of Art have always been a festivity shared by artists and audience. Or we might say – for the creators and the consumers. Anyway, it is a festivity.

Our inner necessity tells us to turn our backs on darkness and coldness and to shout: “Hello, Sun!” The soul is also yearning for something beautiful, great and eternal, which is Art.

A special atmosphere of the opening was created by Anna Ķirse’s singing.

The exhibition runs through May 17.
