Beatričė Kleizatė-Vasaris Art Gallery was founded in 2014 in the very center of the city, in the Meilė Lukšienė Education Center, in an exclusive building – in the former synagogue. This is a collection of artworks donated to the capital of Sūduva, as well as to the region and Lithuania as a whole. The basis of the collection consists of diaspora artists who took Lithuania to their hearts, created it there, brought it back from there – A. Works by Galdikas, V. Kasšuba, V. Ignas, A. Elskaus, V. Vizgirda, R.Viesulas, P. Gailiaus, V. K. Jonynas, K. L. Žaromskis, S. Eidrigevičius, P. Lapė, V. Rato, J. Bagdonas – and authors living in Lithuania, who made sense of Lithuanian national and cultural identity.

 The collection reflects Beatričė’s desire to preserve the works of our artists, who have strayed into other countries of the world by various ways, and to bring them back to Lithuania, which would help to better understand, evaluate the works of artists.  Many works on display is like a hint or a reference to the entire creative legacy.
