The Artists’ Association Gallery has already been open since the 60s, when in the then P. Cvirka street (now Pamenkalnio st.) the art fund exhibition salon “Dailė” was opened. During the Soviet period “Dailė” was the only professional artwork store. This salon would attract people of broader interests, people looking for more then the imposed socialist norms. A bit later, in the current Vokiečių street, another “Dailė” salon was opened. For this salon, a singularly unique place appeared – the Art Exhibition Palace, built in 1968 (now the Contemporary Arts Centre, by the architect Vytautas Edmundas Čekanauskas). In those days, this building of innovative modernist architecture in the very heart of Vilnius Old town, thanks to its big-scale vertical windows, gave the gallery an amazing space to exhibit professional works of art.
Today the Artists’ Association Gallery, combining these two galleries (Pamėnkalnio st. 1/13 and Vokiečių st. 2), continues these cultural traditions and presents – for visitors as well as clients – artworks from Lithuania and abroad.
