Anne Parmasto Painting Exhibition SWEET DREAMS AT OLD ANATOMICAL THEATRE
on Wednesday, September 19 at 17:00 opening of
SWEET DREAMS AT OLD ANATOMICAL THEATRE
The University of Tartu Centre for Arts Gallery, Uppsala 10, Tartu.
Anne Parmasto was born on December 13, 1952 in Tartu. Since 1999 he has been an Associate Professor of Painting at the University of Tartu. Parmasto is a member of the Tartu Artists’ Association (2002), the Rabnitztaler Artists' Group (Austria 2000), the Estonian Painters ' Association (1995) and the Estonian Artists' Union (1993).
in 1981, she graduated ERKI (known today as Estonian Academy of Arts), specialising in painting and theatre arts. In 2002, she received the Ado Vabbe Prize from the Tartu Artists’ Association and from the City of Tartu, in 1994 the "Estonian Lake" Grand Prix and the Special Prize of the Estonian Artists' Union.
Since 1984, she has participated in over 40 personal exhibitions in Austria, Estonia, Germany and the USA; and almost in 300 group exhibitions in Estonia, Austria, Belgium, Luxembourg, Lithuania, Italy, South Korea, Sweden, Germany (including the Köln Art Fair), Finland, Turkey, USA, Belarus and Russia.
Once a known Professor in Natural Sciences, Hans Trass, asked me: "What do you want to say with your works?". It happened at the reception of the university's anniversary as we were standing in front of the remains of a big cake. I took the knife and made a big circle in this scenic chaos and separated a small sector and said: "What I can say about my work is just that big." He stood astonished for a moment, then I saw a flash of recognition in his eyes. No words were needed.
The University of Tartu Centre for Arts Gallery’s mission is to present and promote professional creative work at the University.
Mirjam Hinn's personal exhibition "Solidified Sound" in Tartu Art House 17.05-22.06.2018
On Thursday, May 17th at 6 p.m. master's student of the University of Tartu, Mirjam Hinn will open her personal exhibition “Solidified Sound” in the monumental gallery of Tartu Art House. The exhibition will remain open until June 22nd.
Hinn has previously graduated from Tartu Art College and the present exhibition is her master’s project at the University of Tartu. “Solidified Sound” is based on the phenomenon of synaesthesia that she uses to visualise sounds. Aural elements are replaced with brush strokes and layers of sound are depicted through geometric shapes filled with colour gradients.
Hinn’s works form a symbolic final graduate project (Hinn began her studies in the Department of Art): during the first years of the Painting Department the connection with Tartu’s historic roots and the output of the former art school Pallas were clear, but over the last years this foundation has been left behind in order to embrace the trends of the contemporary art world where the brush stroke is currently one of the central and defining elements.
The artist adds: “This exhibition consists of visual depictions of unnatural sounds. They have been created by people and have been lifted from their everyday context. Every sound has then gone through the artist’s personal interpretation process to become a painting. The sounds and the visuals complement each-other and become one. Although the nature of sound is to be in constant motion and transformation, they have now solidified into a material form.”
Defence of Mirjam Hinn’s master’s project will take place on 6 June. Hinn’s supervisor is Jaan Elken, artist and Professor Emeritus at the University of Tartu, assisted by artist Maarja Nõmmik.

Students' photo exhibition SEQUENCES curated by Liberal Arts Professor and Photo Artist Peeter Laurits
On Thursday, May 10th at 5pm, the photo exhibition “SEQUENCES” is opened at the University of Tartu Library. The exhibition grew out from the students’ works at the lecture series “Wild Aesthetics or How to Describe the Forest to Digital Hares” led by the photo artist and University of Tartu Professor of Liberal Arts, Peeter Laurits.
The exhibition remains open until 22nd June 2018.
In the lobby of the university library conference centre, W. Struve 1, Tartu.
In the autumn semester, students had to make photo series consisting of five pictures that needed to be somehow connected with each other either by colour, form, composition or motif. During the spring semester, students' photos were re-used to create new photo sequences.
In composing the exhibition, Professor Peeter Laurits, who is the curator of the exhibition, was helped by Marja-Liisa Plats, Jaanus Siim and Ain Protsin – the students and free listeners of his lecture series.
The organisation of the exhibition is supported by the Cultural Endowment of Estonia. Centre for Arts is thankful to the University Libabry for good cooperation. Printing of the photos was done by Seri Design.

Exhibition "Estonian traditional striped blankets" 4.04–29.06.2018
University of Tartu Centre for Arts Gallery
in Old Anatomical Theatre Lossi str. 38, Tartu
Opening: 4 April 2018, 4 PM
Exhibition remains open till 29th June on working days from 10 AM - 5 PM
Exhibition of blankets woven by the Estonian Native Textile students of the University of Tartu Viljandi Culture Academy.
The exhibition displays woollen supplementary weft weave blankets copied from blankets and rugs in Estonian museums by students during the 2nd year weaving course. According to old wedding customs, the bride had to make a blanket for the bridal bed; unmarried young people slept under woollen or sheepskin coats. Ancient woven bridal shoulder scarves were replaced by colourful striped (supplementary weft weave), chequered, patterned and embroidered blankets.
The items displayed in this exhibition have been made using traditional techniques and tools. The patterned loom-woven blankets were made according to whole or partially-preserved blankets in museums, thus giving a new life to the forgotten handicraft heritage.
In pattern-taking and weaving, the students were supervised by Christi Kütt, Lecturer in Estonian Native Textile. The curator of the exhibition is Kristi Jõeste, Programme Director and Lecturer in Estonian Native Textiles.
