St.John”s Day, occurs at the summer solstice in the middle of summer. As northerners, this most likely is our favourite season, long awaited through the long winters. The nighttime is short and it is possible to enjoy the sun. The long winter’s nights are a faded memory, and we do not want to think about the fact that autumn is not so far away. This is the time to enjoy lying on your back in a blooming meadow, staring into the sky watching the clouds pass by. They are reflected in water where the sweet flags provide fragrance to the air and the water-lilies bloom. It is around this time when we feel closest to nature. The exhibition “Midsummer’s Day and After” reflects those feelings.
The exposition is made up of the paintings of Dace Lielā, Laima Bikše, Ilze Avotiņa, Ieva Liepiņa, Andris Eglītis, Valdis Krēsliņš, Henrihs Vorkals, Lauris Mīlbrets, Jānis Purcens and Kaspars Zariņš, ceramics of Juta Rindina and sculptures of Andris Vārpa, Aivars Vilipsons and Ivars Miķelsons.
