The watercolour painting exhibition Tête-à-Tête with Čiurlionis by Jūratė Bučmytė and Albertas Krajinskas. Visitors will also have a possibility to see M. K. Čiurlionis’ drawings and sketches. The exhibition is dedicated to the centenary of the Restoration of the State of Lithuania.

This exhibition is a consequent of the authors’ long-term interest in M.K. Čiurlionis' personality and creation, which started in childhood while getting acquainted with his picture albums. Later, for many times, the artists visited M. K. Čiurlionis gallery, examined M. K. Čiurlionis’ literary talent, analysed his works as well as their own experiences and emotions inspired by the artist's creation in different stages of their life.

By means of the Victorian watercolour technique, both artists capture the panoramas of Vilnius, Trakai, the Curonian Spit. This exhibition presents their improvisations on Čiurlionis' works.

Jūratė Bučmytė and Albertas Krajinskas have participated in various creative symposiums, plein-airs and exhibitions. Their works have become a possession of various museums and private collectors in Australia, Switzerland, Austria, Japan, USA, France, England, Germany and Finland.
