The main idea of the exhibition was to draw the artists attention to wood as primary material for painting. In addition to the painting on the wood, artists were asked to create wooden sculptures or to paint wooden objects.
The exhibition is rich in the diversity of ideas and a wide range of topics filled with legends and stories created by the artists themselves. The works embrace mythical images telling about love, the routine of life and mysteries. It is this creation of stories and conjuring up of tales being the highlight of the exhibition, which integrates into the exhibition message.
Over forty well-known artists such as Ivars Heinrihsons, Helēna Heinrihsone, Frančeska Kirke, Elita Patmalniece, Sandra Krastiņa, Edgars Vērpe, Egils Rozenbergs, Anna Heinrihsone, Kristaps Zariņš, Ģirts Muižnieks, Gunārs Krollis, Ingūna Krolle, Līga Ķempe and others were requested to create their works.
