“Anastazija and Antanas Tamošaitis creative works:
tapestries, paintings and graphics“
Opening reception – 2009, October 30 th, Friday, 5:00 pm
At Janina Monkute - Marks Museum & Gallery
The fruitful life of the spouses Tamošaitis, Anastazija and Antanas, may be divided into two periods: their life in pre-war Lithuania, and in Canada. Anastazija Mažeikaitė – Tamošaitienė (1910 – 1991) and Antanas Tamošaitis (1906 – 2005) were brought together and united by a common goal - to spread Lithuanian culture, to promote Lithuanian folk art, and to bring it back as a vital force in contemporary life.
From the moment they met in the early 1930s, they marched on shoulder-to-shoulder in their important work. The Tamošaitises were the only professional Lithuanian textile workers who created carpets and decorative textiles and arranged exhibitions of carpets, unique at those times (in 1935, 1937 and 1938 in Kaunas). The carpets of A. Tamošaitis and the national costumes of A. Tamošaitienė gained the highest awards at the world exhibitions in Paris (1937) and New York (1939), and at the international exhibition of crafts in Berlin (1938).
