The gallery belongs to the VAA and serves as a kind of teaching space for the students’ artistic activities. For the majority of students Akademija is their first gallery which opens doors to the public and helps them to find their spectators and appraisers. It also presents the works of the VAA professors and teachers. Priority is given to group exibitions and projects, particulary those with foreign higher schools of art. The gallery organizes annual students’ Art Days, and it also serves as the place for the presentation of the projects for Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees. The gallery houses an art salon which offers to acquire painting, graphic, sculpture,ceramic works, art publications (mainly – by the VAA publishers), picture cards. The gallery cooperates with the Vilnius Academy of Music and hosts concerts by the students of this higher school.
