On May 18, the opening of the exhibition of paintings by Serafima Potapova "Favourites" took place in the gallery "Rakurs" (2nd floor).

Serafima Potapova (1945-2019) is an easel artist, decorator, painter, founder and head of the unique workshop "Dancing Artists".

Charlie Chaplin, mermaids, animalistic images (stone lion, fish, crows, butterflies), withered flowers, angels, landscapes from travels, portraits of people dear to her are the author's favourite themes. All these images lived for a long time on the canvases of the artist, each time surprising with their interpretation. The variability of favorite characters, plots, compositions created new faces of characters, a palette of moods rich in nuances.

The curator of the exhibition is art critic Larisa Finkelstein, the founder of the first Belarusian gallery "BRAMA", the member of the Belarusian Union of Designers, the Belarusian Union of Critics, the Belarusian Union of Artists, the International Association of Art Critics AIS (Moscow).

The exhibition will be open to the public until December 3, 2023.
