The exhibition of the Estonian Painters’ Association   14 March- 19 April, 2015.

The art practices of Western art metropolises have perhaps sidelined painting as the most widely practiced form of art, however, if we include the globalizing world village with the art scenes of China and other Asian countries, the powerful market forces firmly push painting back into the centre as the art-defining activity on a global scale.

The 2015 annual exhibition organized by the Estonian Painters’ Association at the Pärnu Museum of New Art attempts to bring together the work of painters who consider daily painting the essential part of their existence, as well as artists who engage it on a project-basis. A special invitation has been extended to students of painting at the Estonian Academy of Art, the Tartu Art College, and University of Tartu.
