The Young Autumn - vernissage


“Svitlytsya” – the local Art House opened its most recent exhibition. An exhibition by two young artists – Evhenia Maleshenko and Kateryna Ivanova. It seems that we’ve reached that point where the term “young artist” literally means, unlike before where it meant people in their mid-forties, but presenting their first exhibit.

Two ladies presenting the exhibit are third year students of the Luhansk State Academy of Culture and Arts. It’s rather pleasing to realize that the youth has this platform to realize themselves and to present their work to the public, starting to make a name for themselves.  It is worth mentioning that the venue hosting the artists, “Svitlytsya”, the very modest semi-basement building is quite different from its neighbor upstairs – the actual two-story Art Gallery, where, where the Members of the Artists Union display their work. But as far as visitors, not square footage – “Svitlytsya” is a fair competition to the Gallery. “Svitlytsya” gives the opportunity to “speak” to young, yet accomplished artists!

You may wonder why there is specifically autumn in the name of the exhibit? The answer is quite simple – their work is dedicated to this time of year, the one we have now. Although there are a couple of pieces associated with the summer, the majority of work is inspired by fall.

 Leonid M. Fil, Dean of the Academy’s Arts Department gave opening remarks at the event, along with Vladimir V. Kozlov, Head of the Academy’s Painting Department. Galina V. Marinkina, “Svitlytsya’s” Director also gave a short speech at the opening. In her later conversation with Leonid Fil she proudly mentioned that there will be many more exhibits like this, hosted by “Svitlytsya” in the future and that the young talent will have its foot in the door through their wonderful venue.
