Gallery Aula at the Faculty of Fine Arts, Brno, Czech Republic
A group of Estonian and Finnish artists-lecturers from Tartu Art College and Saimaa University of Applied Sciences take part in the joint exhibition. The long-term relations of cooperation between the two schools have also resulted in strong bonds of friendship between the artists.
The organizers of the exhibition would like to draw the attention to the value and the role of fine arts in society, underlining the importance of fine arts as a medium that functions over language barriers.
The role of art-culture and art-studies in a society needs to be proven constantly. On the other hand, traditional fields of art such as painting, printmaking, sculpture, stained glass and tapestry have become marginal. These fields do not exist in a traditional way in many European higher education establishments of art, because the aims and the content of art studies are not standardized. The aim of the exhibition is also to create new networks of art teachers.
Creative fields based on cultural traditions carry the coherence that enables us to create visual creation able to function in contemporary society.
