In 2003 June, Plungė hosted the Fourth Exhibition of Samogitian Art, with one hundred and a half of participants from Samogitia, Lithuania and abroad.
Painting, sculpture and applied arts were represented with the range of styles and trends from the naive up to the abstract. A large group of artists either residing in the Samogitian area of Lithuania or of Samogitian descent participated. The list of participants included famous names, such as: Leonardas Tuleikis, Vytautas Valius, Juozas Bagdonas, Romanas Vilkauskas, Osvaldas Jablonskis, Pranas Griušys, Teresė Jankauskaitė, Linas Julijonas Jankus, L. Mišeikienė, Loreta Zdanavičienė, Petras Gintalas, Algimantas Švažas (1933–2003), Vija Tarabildienė, Antanas Visockis, Ričardas Zdanavičius. A nice addition to the exhibition was the participation of the Samogitians presently residing abroad, V. Ignas, E. Kubbos, L. Skrolys, J. Janavičius, J. Dabkevičiūtė-Paukštienė, and J. Bagdonas, who has recently repatriated from the USA.
