The showcased works have been created by painters Vladimir Kozhukh, Alexander Ksendzov, Maria Isaenok, Nadezhda Liventseva and Sergey Lagunovich-Cherepko, and graphical artists Konstantin Sharangovich, Vladimir Mekhovich, Sergey Balenok and Sergey Stelmashonok. In addition, sculptors Vladimir Slobodchikov and Alexander Finsky have contributed.
The show is dedicated to Defenders of the Fatherland Day and Women’s Day. However, it also honours the memory of the participants’ friend and colleague Yuri Makarov, whose 55th birthday would have been celebrated this year. Yuri’s pictures are additionally on show.
Mr. Makarov lectured at the Belarusian Theatre and Art Institute (now known as the Belarusian Academy of Arts) for a long time. He spent his last years working at his studio in the BSU’s student town … and it continues to operate today.
The exhibition is part of the Touching Palette programme, which aims to acquaint BSU students and lecturers with modern fine arts.
