International art exhibition All Elements
Other news

On January 30, 2008, at 17.00 in the gallery “Rakurs” (second floor) took place the opening of an international art exhibition “All Elements”.

In old times people used to believe that reality consists of four parts that is four parts of the world, four seasons, and four elements. The elements played a large role in our ancestors’ life. Our forefathers use to worship gods of Sun, of Water, and so on. We inherited from them weather sayings and folklore. Nowadays water, air, earth, sky, and fire still rouse curiosity of people, attract and excite them. Artists pay a particular attention to elements. They create images expressing their feelings with the use of different techniques as painting, watercolor, batik, graphics, and photography.
The exhibition is dedicated not only to natural phenomena, but also to elements of feelings and materials. At the exhibition are displayed over 130 works. In the event participate 80 artists from different countries: Russia, Ukraine, Norway, and others. Many of them are well-known not only in Belarus, but also abroad: Alexander Rodin, Fyodor Yastreb, Victor Tikhonov, and others.
We invite to the exhibition everyone who is interested in the modern art.
The exhibition will be open until March 3, 2008.
