Art therapy – that is what you could call Kristina and Jaunius Ranonis‘ farmstead-gallery “Mirnabalis”. Works of art are all over the place: on shelves, on tables, in the meadow. The fire-clay ceramics – which are made from heat resistant clay – are of particular interest. The owners also do interior and exterior artistic design, so you might find yourself not only picking up ideas, but actually receiving professional advice or perhaps you will end up decorating your home with their work!

In Jonas Mekas Visual Art Centre different exhibitions are held; cinema and educational projects are carried out. Special attention is paid to creative work of Jonas Mekas and Jurgis Mačiūnas, the FLUXUS movement.
Jonas Mekas about Center:
„Let me dream...What should this Center do besides housing and occasionally showing Maciunas and Mekas works ?
It shouldn't be a Museum, that is, a Center, a place devoted only to its collections. I mean, works by Maciunas/Fluxus and myself.
It should be a place for living working artists, working in film, video, computer, mixed media fields from all over the world, to present their works. It should also be a center, a place to present retrospectives and surveys of works of artists, working in the above mentioned fields, from the past.
It should carry the flag of the avantgardes of all of the arts“

The public enterprise Juodosios keramikos centras was founded in 1995. During the recent year the Centre has held 5 international symposiums, a lot of exhibitions. In 1999 the Centre became a member of the International Academy of Ceramics, and in 2000 it was given the name of the UNESCO Ceramics Centre.
Vilnius Picture Gallery is situated in the former Chodkevičiai Palace built in the early 17th century. The Palace has constantly been expanded and reconstructed. In the 19th century it became a characteristic building of the late classicism style. At present it is one of the most interesting ensembles of this style in Vilnius. Many elements of interior decoration (stoves, wall sculptures) characteristic of that period have been retained in the halls of the first floor with the recreated interior of the 19th century inside. As it was usual for Lithuanian mansions, collections of medals, portrait miniatures, views of the old Vilnius, portraits of well-known townsmen (collection of Vilnius Philanthropy Society) are exhibited in the halls of the gallery.
There are two people in this story who have a certain historical significance. One is the architect Laurynas Stuoka-Gucevičius (1753–1798), who was largely responsible for the spread of classical architecture in Lithuania in the late 18th century and whose work is represented by some of his drawings.
The second is the painter Pranciškus Smuglevičius (1745–1807), also on exponent of classicism, who became the first professor of painting in the Vilnius School of Art. They both worked together on the design and decoration of Vilnius Cathedral.
