Amber Trip's international jewelery art contests are an important event for Lithuanian artists as well - an opportunity for Lithuanian artists to break away from on-demand creations, where jewelery visions are brought to the customers and often lead to creative decisions. The art competition frees thinking and rises to a higher level and is available in virtual space. Creating an opportunity to present authors, creators to performers and assessors, and exhibition organizers around the world, says Prof. L. Kėrienė.


This project was funded by Lithuanian Culture Council.
