True Creator to Embody the Native Land: Art Exhibition Dedicated to Gavriil Vaschenko

True Creator to Embody the Native Land: Art Exhibition Dedicated to Gavriil Vaschenko
Other events
From June 21 to September 18
"Labyrinth" gallery (3rd floor)

The exhibition under the title "Land Under White Wings" by Gavriil Vaschenko dedicated to the 90th anniversary of the artist will open in the Library on June 21.

The idea of ​​the exhibition is not only to honor the memory of the great artist and teacher, but also to show his works in an unusual format. The exposition presents both sketches of monumental works and small-size works, most of which are exhibited for the first time.

Gavriil Vaschenko is known as a monumental artist with a large-scale thinking and majestic canvases. But the monumentality can be small-sized too, which allow the viewer to focus on the main sense of the work, to consider the technique of painting, to see the nuances of colors, without moving away from the picture and etting distracted by other works or the interior.

The Vaschenko’s works differ by genre and theme, reflection on the problems of time and history of their native land. Especially the most dear and close place for the artist is Polesye: the place where he was born and where his childhood passed. Polesie reflects his understanding of the Native Land.
Apparently, therefore, he wrote calloused hands people, deep blue lakes, horses grazing in meadows, storks, attracting the artist with their beautiful graceful silhouettes.

"Their slow soaring in the sky, amazing purity of the lines, that is the source of my inspiration. Without it I can not imagine my native Polisye. They are invisibly present in my works, even if they are not depicted". It's not just beautiful words, it's Gavriil Vaschenko's creative position.

The event will be held at 5 pm in the Labyrinth Gallery (3rd floor).
The exhibition "Land under white wings" will last until September 18, 2018.
The end date of the exhibition can be changed.

The opening hours of the exhibition corresponds to the library’s opening hours.
Entrance to the exhibition is available by the library ticket or ticket of the library's social and cultural center.
