Helle Vahersalu’s anniversary exhibition “Snow, Rust, Colour”
On Thursday, 17 October at 5 p.m. Helle Vahersalu’s anniversary exhibition “Snow, Rust, Colour” will be opened in the large gallery of the Tartu Art House. The exhibition is curated by Tiiu Talvistu and Kadri Asmer.   Colours have dominated the works of Helle Vahersalu for most of her life. Her pictorial world is based on them and this is expressed through her portraits, still lifes and abstract compositions. Although Vahersalu doesn’t paint to convey messages or to make the world a better place, she still manages to transform our surroundings. She paints to bring more colour to the world of viewers, and to thereby offer them aesthetic experiences and soothe their senses. She paints because she cannot live without it.  
Jass Kaselaan’s exhibition “Sheep”
Jass Kaselaan’s exhibition “Sheep”
17.10.2019 to 10.11.2019
On Thursday, 17 October at 6 p.m. Jass Kaselaan’s personal exhibition “Sheep” will be opened in the small gallery of the Tartu Art House.   The exhibition „Sheep” consists of sculptures resembling human heads on shelves and a photo depicting sheep. Jesus has said: “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me and I give unto them eternal life. I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.”   The artist thinks that the first sentence of the previous paragraph would have sufficed to describe the exhibition but in that case the press release would have probably been too short.
Vello Vinn „Vahetus“ 1977
Vello Vinn ∞ & ○
17.10.2019 to 15.12.2019
As of 17 October, 5 pm, the Art Hall Gallery opens an overview exhibition of the graphic art of Vello Vinn. Titled "∞ & ○" (read: infinity and circle), the show gives an outline of the artist’s more than a half-century long career.   The thematic core of the exhibition is the developmental trajectory of one of the most innovative post-war Estonian graphic artists, starting from the 1960s up to this day. This also explains the cryptic, symbol-based title of the exhibition which, naturally, hints at the systematic symmetry principle governing much of Vello Vinn’s oeuvre.  
Benno & Beardsley „Oli mul kord“
Benno & Beardsley "Once I Had"
15.10.2019 to 13.11.2019
The exhibition’s title, "Once I Had..." refers to the transience of possession, convenience of over-consumption and other self-destructive implications of human behavior on the future of Earth.   Once I Had.. is a conceptual continuation of Britta Benno recent solo exhibition „Dystopic Tallinn“. In this project the apocalyptic landscape scenery is site-specifically depicted with the Mustamäe district’s panel houses, as they are located in the vicinity of the artist-run space Kraam.

Tark on tulla oksjonile kohale, et meelepärane töö kindlalt endale saada,“ julgustas Kuivjõgi.
Margot Kask jätkab liikumise kujutamist
21.09.2019 to 10.10.2019
Olete oodatud Margot Kase joonistuste näitusele „Rajad” Vabaduse galeriis. Näitus on avatud 21. septembrist 10. oktoobrini.   „Rajad” ei ole Margot Kasel esimene liikumist käsitlev väljapanek.  Möödunud suvel eksponeeris ta selleteemalisi töid Eduard Vilde muuseumis ning möödunud aasta lõpul ja selle algul Pärnu Linnagaleriis, vahepeal olid need väljas ka Tallinna ülikooli Mare majas. Varasematel kordadel oli kunstnik oma seeria pealkirjastanud „Painete ja pööristena”. Margot Kase liikumise kujutamise aluseks, inspiratsiooniallikaks on olnud nüüdistants. Teda on huvitanud mõtestatud  liikumine kui protsess, alguse ja lõputa pidev kestvus, mis aga tegelikkuses ei ole katkestuseta võimalik. Nii ongi vaatajani jõudnud liikumise (liikuvuse) ja selle katkestuse, mõnikord ka inimliku vea jälg. Jälg, mis on vaataja ette ilmunud kas terviklikuma joonistuse - illusiooni, abstraktsiooni või sootuks vihjena.
