Zurich - Switzerland

Zurich: Where Vilnius Meets New York

Zurich From 21 April to 21 April 2018

Presentation
Contemporary art boutique Art Goda presents a selection of paintings and sculptures created by artists from Lithuania and USA. A one day pop-up exhibition is held on the 21st of April at the beautiful Villa Meier Severini, known for its connection with art.

The exhibition will showcase abstract paintings by Aloyzas Smilingis (Lithuania) and R.Wayne Reynolds (USA) as well as contemporary sculpture, created by three Lithuanian artists belonging to two different generations — Vladas Kanciauskas, Aurelija Simkute and Gediminas Endriekus.

This exhibition is best proof of inevitability and boundlessness of art. Ten paintings by Aloyzas Smilingis represent his continuous creative path from 1974. Eleven works on evolon by R.Wayne Reynolds demonstrate his powerful comeback after staying away from art for 23 years. Sculptor Valdas Kanciauskas, well known in his homeland for impressive monumental works is still devoted to the three dimensional art of stone and metal, whereas two emerging talents have chosen to create bronze sculptures, despite the complexity and demand of hard work in this career.

Although all five artists are contrasting creators and personalities they are all united by a single passion — a passion for creating art. This passion knows no boundaries — neither geographic nor time-related ones and therefore an exhibition of American and Lithuanian art in Switzerland seems more than natural and indeed inevitable.

“Switzerland is a great country where global leaders and inspiring talents meet. Also, it is a country where different styles and forms of art come together from various parts of the World, so it is not a coincidence that artworks brought from Lithuania and USA are showcased on the shores of Zurich Lake. By the way, two of the five artists presented at this exhibition live and work by the lake too. I believe this exhibition will surprise the audience with many pleasant discoveries and Villa Meier Severini by will become a perfect meeting place for art and art lovers”, — says Goda Smilingyte, founder of Art Goda boutique.

The exhibition will take place on Saturday, 21 April from13:00 to 19:00. Visitors are invited to join guided tours on 14:00 and 17:00 to enjoy the tunes of live saxophone music.
