The exhibition features 12 authors; those present in the opening will be ready to talk more about their works. At 6pm the old town gallery Ars et Mundus is inviting to yet another photo exhibition “Life Contrasts” featuring works of two exceptional artists.

Already miss Christmas? On Sunday 11am Kaunas Photography Gallery is opening an exhibition of photographs of differently shaped pies and cookies, traditionally baked by Lithuanians for different purposes and celebrations.
