 Spring Exhibition 2021
The long-awaited Spring Exhibition 2021 of the Estonian Artists’ Association is returning to its roots: approached from different angles, artworks completed in 2020/2021 will be exhibited at three exhibition venues of Tallinn Art Hall. The main exhibition of works selected by the jury will be displayed at Tallinn Art Hall, while two curated satellite exhibitions will be on view nearby at Tallinn City Gallery and the Art Hall Gallery. Preparations for the exhibitions are in full swing and doors are currently scheduled to be opened on 26 April.   “The participants of the main exhibition of Spring Exhibition 2021 were selected by a jury comprised of Vano Allsalu (Vice-President of the Estonian Artists’ Association), Corina Apostol (curator at Tallinn Art Hall), Siim Preiman (curator at Tallinn Art Hall), Aivar Berzin (art supporter) and Hanna-Liis Kont (freelance curator). The number of requests to participate increases every year; this time as many as 359 applications were submitted.  
MEANINGS. Tapestries from the methodical archive of the textile department of Pallas
8.-30.03.2021   The exhibition MEANINGS opens the furthermost doors of the methodical archive of the textile department of Pallas and introduces a selection of tapestries from the last 25 years.   Tapestry weaving is a third-year course in the Pallas textile curriculum and each year new students start with a different theme. By that time, the students have completed more than half of their studies and are experienced in working with composition, colour and material. This allows the students to focus on meaning in addition to weaving, and to find the most suitable way for expressing the message of their work. Alongside course works, several graduation works are exhibited. The tapestries depict people and events, encounters and dialogues important to the authors, their households and hometowns. However, the protagonist of the tapestry is always the author, being sometimes visible and invisible at other times.

ARS Showroom #025 – Fideelia-Signe Roots „Friends”
2.–31. March 2021   The exhibition is about the possibility of equal relationships between human- and nonhuman animals. Fideelia was a foster home for a cat whose name is Kant Nurrkärakas in the summer of 2020 at ARS Art Factory. Kant loved to explore the house but the artist could not leave him on his own for the safety reasons so they always walked together and protesting about taking him back to the studio, Kant used claws and teeth. The two friends were liberated and with the desire to be free so their frienship was built on the basis of mutual understanding. Fideelia believes in the liberty and equality between human- and nonhuman animals and has proved it through her practise as animal rights activist. The full potential of this is yet to arrive as the society changes its attitude towards the nonhuman animals.  
Joint exhibition “Jonas & Kaido II”
From Saturday, 27 February the joint exhibition “Jonas & Kaido II” of the painters Jonas Gasiūnas and Kaido Ole is open in the large gallery of the Tartu Art House. The exhibition is curated by Arvydas Žalpys (Meno parkas Gallery, Kaunas, Lithuania).   Although both the Lithuanian Gasiūnas and the Estonian Ole are among the most esteemed painters of their home countries, their oeuvre is in fact very different. Their personalities are also dissimilar. But something in their creative nature or in the urgency that they approach their art is still comparable. That is why it is no wonder that this is not the first exhibition where they both participate.

Exhibition of ceramic artists from South-Eastern Estonia “Routine or Ritual?”
From Saturday, 27 February a joint exhibition of ceramic artists from South-Eastern Estonia “Routine or Ritual?” will be opened in the small gallery of the Tartu Art House.   Handmade ceramics are pleasant and intimate, transforming the everyday domestic routine into an enchanting ritual. Eating and drinking are everyday activities and dishes used each and every day must be convenient and enjoyable. Deliberate, relevant to us and shaped likes us. The process of creating ceramics also contains both routine and ritual. The joy of creation is an integral part of the design.  
“Spring Express” by Ann Pajuväli and Misa Asanuma
Joint exhibition “Spring Express” by Ann Pajuväli and Misa Asanuma will be open in Hobusepea gallery from Thursday, February 25, 2021. Exhibition will stay open until March 15, 2021.             By weaving together drawing, ceramic, concrete products and found objects, the exposition constructs a wandering narrative about the longing to be elsewhere and creating fictional worlds into your everyday. The exhibition invites you to a swift sensory journey, in which a comforting familiarity that comes with previously perceived objects and phenomena is mixed with playful scenes of imagination.   ☆   Where do you go when days blend into one, when nostrils are longing for spring? Where do you go when slipping into reverie?
