Annual 'Artists' Day 25th October' exhibition
Welcome to Peepletree Art Gallery's annual International Artists' Day 2020 exhibition.
This is a one-of-a-kind show to celebrate creative self expression, where artists are hosted by Peepletree to participate at no cost. This is an open invitation to artists, both professional and amateur (who do not have formal training but create more professional quality work).
This year, with the pandemic and the need for social distancing, we take it online. Hopefully next year we will be able to host as usual, a non-virtual event at our gallery.
So here, now, we present the works of our participating artists. We invite you to enjoy this virtual show. Thank you and enjoy!

Exhibition 'Portraits' by Aigars Liepiņš
Sandra Groza solo show
Born in Latvia and my nationality is Latvian. In October 2014 Latvia opened Embassy in India and my husband became the first Latvian ambassador to this wonderful country. Since that time we are in New Delhi.
"I am not an artist but have a hobby: I like to paint the eggs for Easter which is a special time, universally enjoyed in Latvia. People colour eggs with various materials. Eggs appears on the table not only as festive delicacy, but also are used as home decoration for Easter time."
Opening of the exhibition:
Duo Show 'Retrospective'
"Retrospective" is a group art show, in which we exhibit the works of Maya Liepina and Aigars Liepiņš, and which coincides with the formal opening of Peepletree Art Gallery on 5th of March, 2017. As it is the very first exhibition at Peepletree Art Gallery, we thought what better way to introduce ourselves than to show our earlier works.
We present several of Aigars' academic works from his student days at Art Academy of Latvia – studio projects which include portraiture and studies of the human form.
Some of his works like 'Self-portrait as Madonna with Machine gun' (Ink, pencil on paper) also rendered in the dry needle technique.
Screen Prints, Linocut, Aquatint, Lithography in 'Not my Business'.
Post Academy work – 'Arizona Desert' (Oil on cardboard), 'Creepy Dolls' inspired by collection of vintage dolls which also exposed at gallery.
Maya's works are drawn from 3 different series. The most recent include landscape paintings (acrylic on canvas), inspired by the countryside covered in our motorcycle rides. "Sunflowers" is inspired by the our ride in North Karnataka, which captured the essence of this region, with the beauty of the fields of flowers and the windmills like giant mechanical flowers themselves, tracing the outline of the distant hills. "Forest Fires" depicts the fires that blazed in the Bandipur forests, that sadly destroy the forests and are a threat to the wildlife and natural ecosystem of that environment.
Two of the paintings are from her cityscape series, (2009), inspired by the literary work "Invisible Cities" by the Italian author Italo Calvino.
Finally two mixed media drawings rendered in a style inspired by Goth art, were meant to be self exploratory.
The show is on till the 31st of August, 2017.
