ABOUT THE ARTIST:

Joana Plikionyte lives in Vilnius, Lithuania. She creates graphic prints, miniatures, ex-libris, digital graphics, monotype, and paints with aquarelle.

Joana Plikionyte finished graphics studies in Vilnius Academy of Arts in 1968 and has actively participated in over seventy symposiums and exhibitions in Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Poland, Austria, Hungary, Ukraine, the United States, Argentina, Russia, Italy, France, Switzerland, Germany, Spain, Portugal and other countries. Joana-Danute Plikionyte is honored with many national and international awards for her work.

Many museums and galleries around the world have acquired Joana-Danute’s art, including art museums of Vilnius, Kaunas, Riga and Tallinn; the Tretyakov State Gallery in Moscow; the Museum Ludwig in Cologne; the Museum of Malbork Castle; the Chicago Art Gallery; the Graphic Art Museum of Buenos Aires; The Center of Small Graphic Arts in Barcelona; as well as private collections throughout the world.

Noted art critic Egle Jaskuniene has written, “Joana Plikionyte is in a continuous process of the creative search; that is why her style often contradicts with even the nature of graphics. The artist’s works are fascinating, light and playful…philosophically wise. Thematic variations, which need to be intuitively felt and created in one’s imagination dominate the artist’s work.”

As founder of the Women’s Leadership Circles of Vermont program, she has worked with women leaders throughout the state.

Kerry’s ties with Lithuania are strong. She is a fourth-generation Lithuanian-American who first learned about Lithuania as a camper at Camp Neringa in Marlboro, Vermont, which was founded in the 1960s to preserve the Lithuanian heritage and culture through the period of Soviet occupation that started after World War II. After graduating from Villanova University in 1991, she lived for two years in Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania, learning Lithuanian and teaching English at Vilnius University and the Lithuanian Teachers Institute.

Upon her return to the United States, as part of the first diplomatic corps after Soviet Occupation, Kerry joined the Lithuanian Embassy in Washington, D.C. as the Advisor for Educational and Cultural Affairs in 1993. When she left four years later to obtain a graduate degree at SIT Graduate Institute in Brattleboro, Vermont, the President of Lithuania granted her citizenship in appreciation of her contributions to the country. She also spent a year as the Smithsonian Folklife Festival Program Coordinator for the Baltic States cultural program. After working with the American Red Cross in Washington, D.C. for three years, she moved with her family in 2003 to Vermont, where she is raising her two daughters bilingually. Kerry returns to Lithuania regularly for both work and vacation, and lectures at the Baltic Management Institute, a premier executive education institution.
