A memorial exhibition dedicated to Juhan Püttsepp, one of the first students of the Pallas school, is set to open at Haus Gallery on Tuesday 27 March. Püttsepp began teaching art at the same time as he was studying it himself, making a name for himself as a respected teacher in the decades that followed. He gained wider fame as an artist thanks to his landscapes and figural compositions, which are valued for their warm colouring and expressiveness – and which can be admired in all their glory in this exhibition.

Starting in November, a double exhibition of paintings by young artists Liis Koger and Kärt Hammer, curated by the Haus Gallery, will be on display in the private banking rooms of Swedbank’s headquarters. The abstract poetic style of the works functions cognitively rather than narratively, while at the same time the skill of both authors in the use of words is something that further complements their colourful artistic philosophy.loe lähemalt

"After spending two years sniffing around Barcelona with Spot, I poked my nose in through the doors of the Haus Gallery and was greeted by Piia Ausman and a familiar grin: “Well, are you and Spot coming to work for me?”
I wasn’t left with a lot of room to think.
The road leading to this building has been a familiar one to me for many years, and even though being away for two years has smashed any sort of concept of Tallinn as a familiar place, my relationship with Haus hasn’t disintegrated over time.
And here we are – a warm, familiar nest where I can keep myself warm, away from the long forgotten grey and cold outside.loe lähemalt
Mauri Gross’s exhibition Hypnosis will open in Haus Gallery at 18.00 on Tuesday, 24 October. Mauri Gross’s tool is fragmental oil paintings presenting a shift in position, with entry into the picture via the details and, in a good way, becoming stuck inside.

An exhibition of the paintings of a distinguished Estonian hyperrealist, the uniquely original and highly cherished Miljard Kilk, is on display at Haus Gallery until October 21. The surrealistic figure compositions with mythological and religious undertones represent the artist’s creation over the last few years, providing an intimate insight into his inner world. Miljard Kilk’s present world appeals to both the viewer’s inner sense as well as their cognition of the outside world, suggesting there is no other reality but what we make ourselves.

The moment when Sirje Runge stepped into the world of art was, and still is, very meaningful, enchanting. The 60s were accompanied by a certain spirit of freedom, latent protest, hidden irony towards the ruling ethics, secretly planting deplored things into the art columns of such a world, a little bit of erotics, more geometry, a hint of romance and dreams, practically timeless and unpretentious things. Now, looking back at that time through the prism of art, which, in a word, maps the emotional history of mankind, we smile a bit because now we see those things that used to be hidden freely.

Art has been an inseparable part of manor interiors. Due to their representative function, manor houses had to be luxuriously furnished. Manor lords displayed numerous works of artistic value, which had to convey the owner’s wealth and patronage. Walls were covered by paintings and interiors were overflowing with works. The portraits of forefathers and landscapes could be found inside of gold frames lavishly decorated with ornaments. The majority of the former grandeur has since disappeared. Despite that fact, manor ensembles have retained their dignity because of their historic heritage.loe lähemalt
An exhibition of paintings by Mall Nukke, titled Eesti Mõisamaastikud (Landscapes of Estonian Manors), will be open in the Lihula manor house from 5 July to 5 August, and is an innovative part of the legendary series of concerts titled Estonian Manors 2017. A tour of the manor will take place on 27 July at 17.00, an hour before the first concert is set to begin, in which the artist will provide an introduction to the exhibition. Proceeds from the sale of the paintings will be used to support the last venue to host the series of concerts, the Hummuli Manor School.

On 20 June at 5 PM, the joint exhibition “Celebration Time” of the Finnish artists Raija Nokkala and Katja Mesikämmen will be opened at Haus Gallery. It is a symbolic way to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Republic of Finland, the approaching Midsummer, life in general, and every single moment within it. The colourful and naivistic exhibition is supplemented by the topical installation of the Estonian artist Jüri Mildeberg.loe lähemalt
I honestly have to admit that the subject of the Baltic states has always been a source of intrigue and questions for me. Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania!? A neighbourly and common part of the Baltic Sea. Geographical proximity, a market divided in many ways, branches and retail chains of the same companies in each of the country’s capitals. Joint discussions, possible shared economic and cultural platforms, parallel groups, and also some exhibitions. However, it seems that emotionally everyone stands on their own.

In the world of contemporary art, the Venice Biennial is one keyword that everyone knows. Representation at the Biennial is a kind of national duty and opportunity, just like the Olympics or Eurovision. It is a landmark, used to measure the maturity and status of the artist and the country he/she represents.

Haus Gallery participates in Tallinn Art Week in 12 – 18. June 2017. It is a festival that brings the best of Estonian art to the audience.
Art and taverns have in some ways been linked throughout the centuries. Taverns, restaurants and cafés are places for communication, places for meeting up, places that create an atmosphere where many artists, writers and musicians have stood for their principles, let their ideas fly, and found people who think the same way.

A month ago, Marko Mäetamm, inspired by Yulian Semyonov, drew a comic on the topic of "Seventeen Moments of Spring", one moment amongst others being "the shooting in London". One can fortunately say that the capital of the UK offers different moments as well – moments in the midst of art. While one has to escape from the bullets, then art is often something, which, in spite of escaping, blossoms vernally.
