Even before the Foundation was registered officially, our team took part in organizing a number of art-exhibitions with the aim to foster the promotion of new talents and to encourage the art of painting.

Personal exhibition “Meet your dreams”

In December 2016 Vlada Merkulova presented her works (graphics, oil, paintings) in the State Literature Museum in Moscow. Figures from the fairy-tales along with surrealistic expressions introduced the public to the magical world, full of philosophic reflections and dreams.

Exhibition of doll crafters, artists with a unique doll-making style

In December 2016 the first exhibition of art-doll makers took place in the State Literature Museum in Moscow. 7 craftsmen from different Russian cities presented their works during the festive pre-Christmas period. The public was very enthusiastic and vividly interested, so our team decided to make this exhibition an annual event at the museum.

Exhibition of artists from the Seychelles – “Uncovered Paradise”

In 2014 our team brought works of art from the Seychelles. Putting this unique collection together was quite a challenge, given that many of the artists live in the mountains without access to the internet. However, in cooperation with local partners, we managed to show “Uncovered Paradise” in Moscow and in Yaroslavl. This project boosted with success: in total 78 artefacts (paintings and craft objects) were presented to the public.

Video-art exhibitions

In 2011, we gave start to the annual Video-art exhibition within the framework of the yearly Winter Art Festival in Sochi. The curator of this exhibition is the famous Italian video-artist Antonio Geusa, and we are proud to introduce this new concept of contemporary art to the wider public together with him. This new genre enriched the Winter Art Festival in Sochi with yet another beautiful tradition.

Photo and graphics exhibition of the famous Russian bluesman Sergey Voronov

In March 2012 our team organized a photo and graphics exhibition for Sergey Voronov, the permanent leader of the very popular in Russia “CrossroadZ” jazz band. The art-show took place during his concert at the trendy club Trampoline in Moscow. “I will play blues classics as well as my own songs. Our band performing together for 22 years will invite 2 guests musicians this time – Michail Vladimirov with his harmonica and the cellist Daria Lovat who also sings back-vocal” –Sergey announced in his interview to RIA News (Russia’s Information Agency).

Jewellery exhibitions at the Winter Art Festival in Sochi

During the annual Winter Art Festival in Sochi organized by the great Russian conductor Maestro Jury Bashmet, for 4 years in a row (2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014) our team facilitated a very successful series of jewellery exhibitions by the famous Moscow-based craftsman Ilgiz Fazulzyanov (http://ilgiz.com/gallery?locale=en ).
