The exhibition, which opens in the framework of cooperation with the Lipetsk Regional Art Museum, is dedicated to the 65th anniversary of the formation of the Lipetsk region and the 60th anniversary of the creation of the Lipetsk regional organization of the Union of Artists of Russia.
The exposition will acquaint with the main directions of creativity of the famous Russian master and includes 33 works from the museum collection and the artist’s family collection, created from the late 1970s to 2014. This is the first large-scale solo exhibition of Yuri Grishko in Voronezh.
Yury Grishko is one of the oldest members of the Lipetsk regional organization of the Union of Artists of Russia, who stood at the origins of its foundation, and with its work and public activity had a great influence on the formation of the artistic environment of the city of Lipetsk and Lipetsk region. In 2012, on the basis of his creative workshop, the department “Museum of Modern Sculpture” of the Lipetsk Regional Art Museum was opened.
Staying true to his choice, worthily continuing the traditions of Russian realistic art, developing favorite themes, the artist — through portraits of friends, colleagues, famous countrymen, cultural and art figures, his relatives, children’s images — does not tire of speaking the language of plastics about life and people, contemporaries and not only, and, of course, reflect on the time to which they and we are involved. He does not tire of sharing with us the wisdom of the spirit and the beauty that he was able to see, consider, understand, feel and express:
“I love life, I love man. There are no perfect people. But I want to talk about the best, beautiful, that is in every person. As an artist, I see my task in this and strive for it. ”
The format of the exhibition involves the screening of the documentary film “Sculptor Grishko” (2015, director S. Tikhomirov), released to the 80th anniversary of the sculptor.
The cost of visiting the exhibition – 50 rubles for all categories of visitors.
Members of the Union of Artists (upon presentation of a certificate) – for free.
Photography is free.
The exhibition will run until March 31, 2019.
