An Exhibit Opening Instead

Unfortunately, the person who invited me to the village broke her hand and my visit was cancelled at the last minute.  That meant I had the opportunity to go to an exhibit opening on Friday evening.  The exhibit “here we live, here we return” features work by Lithuanian-born, Chicago-resident Rimas Čiurlionis.  It was held in the loft above Gedminas Šibonis’ studio.  Šibonis is a well-known Lithuanian ceramics artists.  Not only did I get to see works by Čiurlionis, I also got to see works by Šibonis — and to chat with various colleagues and acquaintances who were at the opening.   All in all, an enjoyable evening out.

The works in the exhibit aren't online but this is an example of Rimas Ciurlionis' work. From the rimasciulionis.com website.
