The idea of creation of project “On the Way to You” is to unite Latvian and exile Latvian artists, create collaborations and especially promote artists, who were abroad for a long time and have found their way back to Latvia.
As a manager of “On the Way to You” project I thought, what was the best way to support the local Latvian art and craft.
As a result, I have designed and created the first edition of postcards that will support and popularise Latvian craft artists.
This time the postcard is to support the work of textile artist from my hometown Tukums – Zane Neilande Sieradzka.
Her beautiful and colourful Latvian carpets are so incredible and make any space, gallery and home look brighter and more glamorous. To find out more about her work, see the video below or find and contact her on Facebook (Zane Neilande Sieradzka). It is possible to contact and order her crafts.
These particular postcards will be sent to many Latvian exile communities (USA, Canada, Australia, Brazil, Germany, UK and more) and will give the greetings and a remind about our common Latvian roots. Together we are building the road to the one hundred year anniversary of Latvian country.
We want to know more about these talented Latvian and exile Latvian crafts artists — painters, woodcraft, metal craft, leather artists, art photographers and more.
My vision is to create a special section in a museum in Riga, where we can place one artwork of each artist as a gift to Latvia for one hundredth anniversary. This would be a long term ongoing project.
With the concert cycle “On the Way to You” we hope to travel to local and exile Latvian communities and promote the Latvian and exile Latvian craft artists and by selling the postcards and their crafts would not only promote but also support them.
If you would want to support the project or join as a collaborative artist, please like Facebook page Ceļā pie Tevis or Aija Reke violinist and send a message.
On the way to You and to the one hundredth and two hundredth anniversary of Latvia,
