A retrospective exhibition of the works of the distinguished Australian Lithuanian artist Eva Kubbos was opened at the Vytautas Kasiulis art museum in Vilnius on December 20, 2018.
The exhibition, “Eva Kubbos: tarp horizontų (between horizons)”, will be open for three months until March 10, 2019. It is a fitting tribute to the artist in her 90th year and in conjunction with Lithuania’s 100th Independence Anniversary celebrations during 2018. Taking part in the press conference during the opening of the exhibition were the director of the Vytautas Kasiulis museum, Ilona Mažeikienė, with curator of the exhibition, Regina Urbonienė. Ilona’s and Regina’s recent visit to Australia made this exhibition possible. Vytas Juška, former President of the Sydney Lithuanian Community and currently residing in Vilnius, shared reminiscences of Eva Kubbos and the Sydney artistic scene during his time in Sydney.
