Contour Art Gallery is a gallery on tour aiming to represent its artists by looking for the best possible places to exhibit their works. Artistic ideas and their expression vary so greatly that one fixed space alone isn’t capable of presenting art in its best setting. The constant change of exhibition spaces not only creates new contexts for the artists’ ideas, but also lets the viewer see work from different perspectives, forming new, broader approaches to the artwork. Contour Art Gallery established in 2016 in Vilnius, Lithuania by Vilma Mačianskaitė (1990-1995 MA Vilnius University, Economics and Management; 2014-2016 MA, Kaunas Vytautas Magnus University, Arts Department, Art Curatorship program, Art History and Criticism). Emerging gallery gained the respect and trust of locally well-established artists for helping them with the exhibitions and helping to build the career while personally purposefully working with each represented artist. Our first appearance in Art Verona art fair in 2018 was very well appreciated by press – our booth was selected as one of the TOP10 booths not to be missed by Art Tribune magazine: https://www.artribune.com/professioni-e-professionisti/fiere/2018/10/10-stand-da-non-perdere-ad-artverona/7/. At the same fair our represented artist Laisvydė Šalčiūtė was picked by the museum of Palazzo Ducale di Mantova ("Ducal Palace") as the best artist. The exhibition Coming out was held in historical museum and museum contemporary space „LaGalleria“ in April – May 2019 and it was the biggest achievement by Contour Art Gallery and the artist working together. Showing the work of the best Lithuanian artists internationally and building careers for talented young artists step-by-step are the main objectives of Contour Art Gallery. We constantly search for unusual spaces, capable of presenting art in its best setting, to create new contexts for the artists’ ideas. That is why some of events by our artists have been organized by Contour Art Gallery in a bigger venues like Vilnius Art Academy exhibition Halls (for bigger solo shows) or group exhibitions held in 2020 – 2021 in the restored premises of the former Svistapolė manor (1817), in Vilnius.

The idea of establishing a gallery came to the owner whilst writing the research paper 'Contemporary Lithuanian Artists: Career Possibilities' for a master‘s degree at Vytautas Magnus University. As a result of the research it became obvious that due to the historical–political situation of Lithuania, very few of many splendid, nationally well-recognized artists had a chance to be properly represented internationally. That was a main incitement to start representing these prominent Lithuanian artists internationally.
