This exhibition is one of many cultural events being held in Gomel this year, since the town has been named Cultural Capital of Belarus 2011 and Cultural Capital of the Commonwealth 2011. The event will show dolls created by Anna Balash, and photos by Irena Gudievskaya.
Ms. Balash is an acknowledged master in creating dolls, giving each one its own individuality, name and heart (made from fabric or cardboard). Her dolls are made from ceramic and fabric and wear original costumes and dresses. These are supplemented by amazing shots by photographer Irena Gudievskaya, depicting spring flowers and nature, as well as famous Belarusian women: sport and pop stars, prominent TV celebrities and cultural figures of Belarus.
