Some 50 artworks from the homes of Rotary Club members have found their way into this exhibition: paintings, watercolours and prints by authors such as Jüri Arrak, Malle Leis, Andrei Jegorov, Olev Soans, Evald Okas, Heitti Polli, Tõnis Laanemaa. In the words of club member Ruve Schank, the Rapla Rotary club calls for a deeper appreciation of art, including art that has found its way into homes. A good artwork can often give us energy for the day, or help us alleviate daily stress.
Art may have its purposes within itself, or express a political standpoint, but in a domestic setting, we look for the kind of art which brings pleasure – and so, the current collection is mostly made up of landscapes, still lives and nudes, plus some portraits, and prints by Soans and Kaljo Põllu.
