”Jurmala was deliberately chosen to be the place of the organization of the exhibition, because the city becomes in summer not only the center of the health resort, but also it offers the wide cultural program. Traditionally, the cultural and entertainment events in Jurmala are connected with the music, and our objective is to expand the horizon and to attract the society’s attention to the achievements of the Latvian contemporary and modern painting. For the first exhibition, we have chosen the theme of the modern painting, which is represented by the painters, whose works have been already esteemed in the international exhibitions, organized by Sotheby`s,” – the chairman of the board of Baltic Sotheby’s International Realty – Vestards Rozenbergs emphasizes.

”The art, exclusive apartments and villas are connected in the same way, like the canvas are connected with the frame. For the perfect premises, the art communicates the individuality and special aura. The Riga Gallery, till now the only one in the Baltic State, has established successful cooperation with Sotheby’s Auction House, and the works of the modern art were included in the year 2009, in London, for the first tine in the history of the Latvian art, in the auction list – these works comprised Liga Purmale’s „Saturday night movie” and Ritums Ivanovs’s „Frame 05” – which were successfully sold. The artists, represented in the collection of the RigaGallery, are the greatest stars of the Latvian art – the painters, whose style has already become the brand,” – the directress of the Riga Gallery Inessa Rinke says about the exhibition.
