“Enchanting Arts”, a book-illustrative exhibition timed to the 80th anniversary of the Belarusian Union of Artists, is open in the fine arts hall (306), from 10 to October 31.

Creators and masters, talents and enthusiasts, those who managed to capture the historical panorama of our life, bringing the national color, new concepts and forms to fine arts and laying the foundation for successors and future generations – all are members of the Belarusian Union of Artists, one of the oldest creative associations in the republic.

The Union has gone a difficult historical path: repressions of the 1930s, the Great Patriotic War, the struggle against formalism in art, the dominance of social realism and the inability to realize one’s creative ideas. They have borne a lot, have fought for a lot, and have achieved a lot. Today, the Belarusian Union of Artists is a significant association engaged not only in creativity, but also in organizing republican and international open-airs and exhibitions, teaching and promoting Belarusian arts abroad.

The exhibition presents the works by leading masters of the Belarusian Union of Artists. Various types of fine arts are presented: painting, drawing, sculpture, decorative and applied arts, theatrical-decorative art, monumental-decorative art, modern art practices, as well as books about artistic criticism and art history.

The exposition is remarkable for the diversity of trends, images, genres, forms and techniques. The works of artists members of the Union are on display: painters M. Stanyuta, M. Savitsky, V. Stelmashonok, G. Vashchenko, V. Gromyko, V. Tsvirko, I. Akhremchik, M. Danzig, L. Shchemelev, P. Maslenikov; graphic masters A. Kashkurevich, V. Sharangovich, A. Basalyga, M. Basalyga, G. Sitnitsa, V. Slauk, V. Staschenyuk, G. Poplavsky, E. Los, V. Providokhin; sculptors Z. Azgur, A. Bembel, A. Anikeichik, A. Glebov, V. Zankovich, S. Selikhanov, I. Misko, V. Slabodchikov; masters of arts and crafts N. Mikholapa, A. Kishchenko, V. Murakhver, L. Myagkova, L. Petrul and others. Along with the national masters, the exhibition presents the works of young authors who are followers of traditions, creators of the modern Union of Artists and the future of Belarusian fine arts.

The exhibition also includes materials on the history of the Belarusian Union of Artists, its formation, development and modern state, regional organizations and structures of the Union, creative associations “Pahonya”, Vitebsk “Kvadrat”, Belarusian educational institutions that prepare artists.
