The 17th international plein-air was strongly related to the wonder of Lithuanian UNESCO heritage – Kaunas Pažaislis Abbey, its history, atmosphere and virtues. The plein-air took place right in the complex of Pažaislis which surroundings were about to help participants to enjoy the concentration of peace and find the most creative painterly solutions. The concept of the 17th plein-air was “The Expression of Silence” and this concept was the title of entire plein-air.
Mostly lithuanian artists participated in this plein-air and one arrived from the neighbourhood – Latvia. Participators: Ausma Bankauskaitė, Rolandas Karalius, Gražvydas Kardokas, Rūta Katiliūtė, Kristine Kvitka (Latvia), Edita Stankevičiūtė, Audrius Šumskas, Gintautas Vaičys. The exhibition based on this plein-air was also shown in Pažaislis Abbey and in the gallery „Homo Ludens“ in Jonava, Lithuania (2010). And now we are very pleased to present it in Riga.“
