Exhibition

The Maltese Association of the Order of Malta is delighted to announce that it shall be holding a National Art Exhibition, to be launched on the 24th of March 2023, lasting a full two weeks until the 6th of April.

The exhibition is aimed at providing a forum for established artists, as well as for promising new ones, allowing for an interesting juxtaposition of different styles, techniques, and levels of development within one magnificent space. By kind permission of H.E. Prince Augusto Ruffo di Calabria, the exhibition will be held in the beautiful hall of St John’s Cavalier, which today serves as the Embassy of the Order to Malta. This impressive military edifice was built to the designs of the famous Italian Francesco Laparelli, with the assistance of the equally renowned Maltese architect Girolamo Cassar. The Cavalier, together with its twin, dedicated to St James, provided a formidable defensive bastion protecting the city’s main gate at its landward aspect. Artists living in Malta and Gozo, or who hail from our shores, are being invited to participate in this national exhibition, utilising their preferred media. Paintings in oils, pastels, watercolours, and others will dance happily among sculptural works in ceramic, stone, glass, and so forth, along with works in photography, bronze and other metals. In short, all forms of art will be admissible for scrutiny by a panel of five independent experts, who will select the works of art to be displayed and made available for sale to the general public.

The Association plans to work with schools, clubs, local councils, and other organisations in Malta and Gozo to encourage group visits to promote the art and the artists, but also to provide everyone with the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful architecture of St John’s Cavalier, which showcases the genius of the military designs of the Order of Malta.

Proceeds from the exhibition will go towards the many charitable causes championed by the Order in Malta, which works to support the disabled, the incarcerated, the sick, and the poor, as it does all over the world. More information on the Order’s mission in Malta and internationally may be seen at www.orderofmalta.mt and www.orderofmalta.int
