The Association of Textile Arts invited the public to the opening of its exhibition ‘Threads of Culture’ Wednesday at Riga’s St. Peter’s Church.

The threads of culture are like the clues that mutually influence and add to each other in the context of investigating the arts world, now that the global information space is open to the full diversity of processes there, explained the cultural venue’s spokeswoman Una Jansone.

Admission to the textile arts show is €2 for the general public, €1 for pensioners and children. The exhibit will be open from today until October 16, except between September 25 through September 28th.

The exhibit will feature especially the works of younger artists Dace Puga, Sabīne Vīksne, Kristīne Sīle un Jolanta Šalvīte, who have sought novel forms of expression and technical solutions such as digital weaving, silk-screening, batik and other authorship techniques.

Artists exhibiting their works at “Threads of Culture” also include several established Latvian textile artists: Edīte Pauls-Vīgnere, Daina Dagnija, Irisa Blumate, Ruta Bogustova, Skaidrīte Leimane, Baiba Osīte, Baiba Rītere, Rolands Krutovs, Mārīte Leimane, Ingrīda Sūna and others.

Riga's St. Peter’s Church spire is the tallest point on the city skyline. It is one the oldest and most valuable monuments of medieval architecture in the Baltic States and in 1997 was listed among the UNESCO World Heritage sites. The church hall is regularly used for exhibitions and concerts.
