Prints by Nijolė Šaltenytė at MAC Virtual Gallery

"I do not intend to prove, teach or change anything. I am an observer. I am interested in the relation between nature and woman; I care about paradoxes of life. I am a teller, but I do not like verbosity. There is no need to try to tell much at once. For me a small needle works on a sock tells a lot, and it is possible to see the entire drama." (Nijolė Šaltenytė)

New painting by Vytautas Pakalnis at MAC virtual galery


(New artworks in the virtual gallery are red framed.)

"<...> fragile balance between reality and poetically comic literary fantasy, sublime dream and cheap props creates the peculiar magic of Pakalnis’ paintings." (Raminta Jurėnaitė)

New paintings by Jonas Gasiūnas at MAC virtual galery


(New artworks in the virtual gallery are red framed.)

"I needed a more universal method. The smoke line solved this problem. Everything that I picture with it can be treated as fiction. It is mere smoke." (Jonas Gasiūnas)

"November Morning" by Stasys Jusionis at MAC virtual galery


(New artworks in the virtual gallery are red framed.)

"Jusionis is, first of all, an unrivalled painter of autumn. He perfectly conveys the bright colour combinations of frostbitten leaves, clayey soil, dry branches and vigour of wind’s gusts. The texture of the painting is not less important than the expressive colour to the artist. He applies the paint in broad gestures and viscous layers, creating the almost relief and burred surfaces of his paintings." (Raminta Jurėnaitė)

New works by Algis Griškevičius at MAC virtual galery


(New artworks in the virtual gallery are red framed.)

"The name of Algis Griškevičius in my memory evokes 3 main things of what he does: paintings of a city (inside and outside) pictured at a shivering moment and lighted with an unearth shine full of details; photographs that remind theatre scenes and open constructions of sculptural objects." (Monika Krikštopaitytė)

Drawings by Algimantas Švėgžda at MAC virtual galery


(New artworks in the virtual gallery are red framed.)

"For Švėgžda it is very important to understand the surrounding as One and he often becomes the object what he pictures. While drawing a blasted rye or apple, garnet, lemon he expresses the fragility and beauty of its existence and shows the relation of it to the eternity." (Monika Krikštopaitytė)

How to read paintings

A work of art remains speechless until the mind of perceiver speaks to it. Only then a man gets acquainted with his work. Once started this acquaintance doesn’t want to let go and always invites to come back and experience the joy of discovery, learn to watch and penetrate.  

This segment is designed to help the works that are in the virtual MMC gallery to start speaking your language. Thanks to art critics and authors cooperation, texts-guidebooks are being made for paintings. This will give an opportunity to study the world of art in a closer look.

Teaching gallery – is an educational project aiming to present Lithuanian art in the space of a school. The project is implemented by the collaboration between non-govermental organization IDES and Modern Art Center. Teaching gallery is projected towards the school communities (teachers and students) who will get a chance to engage into the Lithuanian modern and contemporary art by exploring exhibitions of the artworks’ reproductions in the daily school space.
The first exhibition will be dedicated to the classical Lithuanian photography by presenting the works of Antanas Sutkus, Vaclovas Straukas and Romualdas Rakauskas. The reproductions are made using the artworks of Modern Art Center collection. The related educational material is prepared with the advice of art critics and educators and it could be used as an optional material for art lessons at school.
The first seminar for school teachers, taking part in Teaching gallery, will take place on the 25th April. It will be followed by the monthly exhibitions in 10 Lithuanian schools.
