Panevėžys Civic Art Gallery

The Panevėžys Civic Art Gallery houses almost 700 pieces of stoneware ceramics, which were created during the Panevėžys International Ceramic Symposiums, which began in 1989 and continue to this day. This unique and only collection of its kind in Lithuania reflects local and international trends in contemporary ceramics. The works in the Panevėžys Civic Art Gallery and its Ceramic Pavilion are of significant artistic and historic importance, and at present the only such collection in the Baltic States. The Collection pieces were created by 186 ceramists. The participants (from 37 countries) of 24 symposium to date reflect wide panorama of different cultures. The invited artists were offered to create not only pieces for indoor, but the outdoor sculptures as well.
The Gallery‘s collection grows each year and stands as a monument to the free exchange of ideas and the global community. Ceramic art works bring worldwide recognition to Panevėžys and more importantly to Lithuania as a place of culture and contemporary discourse.
