Apothecary notes is a common theme for the final exhibition by the end of III Latgale Graphic Art Symposium. As Jacob Rothkowitz, father to Mark Rothko – an outstanding founder of abstract expressionism, was apothecary in Dvinsk, so it is natural that the theme of pharmacy and apothecary is perused in graphic art Residence of this year, developing direct connection between inheritance of traditions and sustainability.
