Successful exam before sophisticated spectators
Republican Art Gallery in Minsk’s Kozlov Street showcases pictorial and graphical works, sculptures, and decorative-and-applied arts
Exhibition attracts with diverse exhibits
‘A person is a demiurge; he creates while working on the world’s substance, shaping it and enlightening it. There’s great lightness in creativity; it encourages us to fly but, at the same time, there’s also a great difficulty, pain and obstacle for flight’.
The Mogilev and Bobruisk organisations do not boast the greatest number of artists. However, they are rich in personalities, and have strong traditions of the national school, as laid by famous predecessors. The Mogilev Region has produced so many great masters, famous both in Belarus and far beyond: Vitold Belynichsky-Birulya, Anton Barkhatkov and Pavel Maslennikov.
Spectators at the exhibition note that each artist is remarkable in their own way: they have their own world perception and outlook, and diverse approaches towards creativity. Each is unique creatively.
Audiences will also see Alexey Litin’s photographs of regional artists at work in their studios, recording their processes, as a chronicle. This will surely be of interest to the sophisticated residents of Minsk.
