Exhibition "On the Land of the Arabs"


October 31, 2019 at 16.00 on the second floor of the exhibition hall of the Voronezh Regional Art Museum. I.N. Kramskoy will host the grand opening of the personal exhibition of the national artist of the RSFSR, academician of the Russian Academy of Arts Oleg Mikhailovich Savostyuk “On the Land of the Arabs”.

The author managed to visit many countries of the Middle East. As an artist, he perceived them as something in common, and beauty was common – the beauty of the desert, midday sun, sunsets, small settlements, moving caravans.

Today this world is a combination of antiquity and ultramodernity. Chic Mercedes and Audi overtake caravans of camels, and high-speed military aircraft rush in the sky above mosques. For us, this Earth is somewhat strange and unusual, but if we take a closer look at it, we will find in it unspeakable beauty.

The exhibition presents more than 100 paintings, each of which reflects today’s life and today’s worldview.

The cost of visiting the exhibition is 50 rubles for all categories of visitors.
Members of the Union of Artists (upon presentation of a certificate) – free of charge.
Photography: mobile devices, the camera (no flash) – for free.
Amateur video recording (1 hour) – 300 rubles.

The exhibition runs until November 17, 2019.
