LMAC is interested in showcasing the talents of Lithuanian Canadian artists and dedicates one exhibition each year to a visual artist of Lithuanian descent.  To date, we have had three exhibitions:  Kestutis and Rita Vilis – London Ontario, wood sculptures and photography, Daina Puteris – Toronto Ontario, fine art photography and 10 Lithuanian Canadian artists – Montreal, Quebec, paintings.  We would like to host an exhibition for an artist from Western Canada.  Please contact LMAC if you are interested or know of someone who would like to participate.
