MEMBERS’ ONLINE EXHIBITION LAUNCHED TODAY!

PRESS RELEASE:

Malta Society of Arts’ Members’ Exhibition to take place online for the first time ever, showcasing works by 35 members inspired by dreams.

Titled Dream World, this year’s Members’ Exhibition organised by the Malta Society of Arts (MSA) will showcase works by 35 of its members on the Society’s website and social media platforms. Launched on Monday 1 November, the works will remain online until the 31 December 2021, giving visitors the opportunity to see a multitude of different works in a wide range of media and formats, transforming the online space into a dream-like experience.

“Under normal circumstances, the traditional live Members’ Exhibition would have taken place at our Palazzo de La Salle Galleries,” says MSA’s Assistant Manager Marika Azzopardi, who is also coordinating the project. “However, this year, due to the fact that live curation of the preparatory phase of the exhibition would have been highly challenged by COVID-19 risks, we decided to provide members with an online platform, which will ultimately reach more audiences than in previous editions, including viewers from abroad.”

The theme Dream World was selected to allow the artists to explore a wide array of ideas and experiences related to personal dreams: both sleeping dreams expressing the realms of the subconscious, and/or waking dreams or daydreams, expressing personal as well as social hopes and aspirations, fears and obsessions. The topic provided fertile ground for the minds of the participating member artists, who have created some eclectic works that are not to be missed.

The exhibition is live and may be viewed here: https://artsmalta.org/members-online-exhibition. Participating artists include: Alex Dalli, Allison Bonanno, Anna Galea, Edward Micallef, Elena Degenhardt, Elena Timmtschenko, Elizabeth Munson, Emmanuel Crivat-Ionesco, Fabiola Agius Anastasi, George Cassar, Ian Krause, Jane Micallef, Joanna Azzopardi, Joanna Dounis, Josephine Hili, Josian Bonello, Julian Cini, Louis Sant’Angelo, Manwel Attard, Margaret Farrugia, Mario Zammit-Lewis, Marita Fenech, Mark Cassar, Mary Clare Albanozzo, Matthew Cassar, Michelle Gialanze, Nadine Micallef Grimaud, Nadya Anne Mangion, Nadya Peovska, Rebecca Grima, Robbie Mazzaro, Rosanna Ciliberti, Rossella Dalmas, Sarah Buckle, and Victoria Agius.

The Malta Society of Arts’ Members’ Online Exhibition 2021 can be viewed online from Monday 1 November until Friday 31 December 2021. For more details about the exhibition please visit www.artsmalta.org or www.facebook.com/maltasocietyofarts.

Accompany the designer on a pattern-filled journey along a London canal, as she searches for beauty in her surroundings and finds inspiration in reflections.
This collection is called Lacuna, the Latin word for pond, also defined as ‘an unfilled space’, apt perhaps, as it reflects the feelings of emptiness, uncertainty and chaos often experienced at difficult times; but also of promise, as what’s left behind is room for possibility.

Last few days to see iMprint 5!

iMprint 5 is open until Thursday 14 October, make sure you don’t miss it!

The iMprint team is made up of Jesmond Vassallo, Lino Borg & Justin Falzon. The exhibition is curated by Christian Attard.

30 September to 14 October 2021

Opening Hours:
Mondays to Fridays: 8am to 7pm
Saturdays: 9am to 1.30pm
Sundays & Public Holidays: Closed

Venue: Art Galleries of the Malta Society of Arts, Palazzo de La Salle, 219, Republic Street, Valletta

The exhibition forms part of a series of collective shows called ‘iMprint’ which was started by artist Jesmond Vassallo. In 2013 Vassallo started to organise an annual event dedicated to the art of printmaking. In 2017, iMprint developed into a biennale appointment. This is the only exhibition of its kind in Malta that focusses exclusively on excellent works in the language of intaglio printmaking. By now, iMprint has become a staple in Malta’s art calendar. In past editions, iMpint exhibited works by stalwarts Frank Portelli, Horst Janssen, Marino Marini and Chagall. The aim of the exhibition is to enhance awareness about the art of original printmaking, particularly intaglio processes. We are pleased to announce that this year’s edition of iMprint will feature a retrospective section consisting of works made by the well-known local artist Carmelo Mangion (who introduced etching at the School of Art) and Italian artist Edo Janich.

ARTISTS

This year the 2 special guest artists are Carmelo Mangion (1905-1977) and Edo Janich (1943 – ).

All participating artists are the following:

Mario Abela, Victor Agius, Lisa Ambrogio, Carmen Aquilina, Lino Borg, Vince Briffa, Raymond Calleja, Austin Camilleri, Joyce Camilleri, Roderick Camilleri, Pawl Carbonaro, Alfred Caruana Ruggier, John Michael Caruana, Silvana Caruana, Adrienne Cassar, Annabel Cordina, Raymond Darmanin, Kevin Ellul, Justin Falzon, Jason Joe Farrugia, Jonathan Galea, Anna Grima, Eman Grima, Joseph Mark Micallef, Stephania Micallef, Sergio Muscat, Nathalie Pace, Nicole Pace, Tracey Polea, Mike Ross, Richard Saliba, Tony Sciberras, Catherine Sims, Johanna Uski, Jesmond Vassallo, John Vassallo, Olaug Vethal, and Irene Zammit.

‘Bonds’ is the title of a versatile art exhibition featuring the works of two sisters, Lilyana Ger and Nadya Peovska. It involves an artistic miscellanea, comprising the use of different materials through a synthesis of different media, reflecting on notions such as identity, memory and relationships. The two artists are linking their different artistic practices, presenting a unique selection of experimental work which represents their perspectives on familial bonds and human interactions. The exhibition will showcase digital work, collages as well as mixed media. It will be hosted at the Malta Society of Arts’ Palazzo de La Salle, and will be curated by Roderick Camilleri.
