about the  International exhibition "Love and Music" in the format of the book of the artist


Dear friends and colleagues! In April 2020, we plan to hold the next exhibition. Her theme is "Love and Music". These topics accompany each person throughout their lives,  what could be more beautiful than a sincere and deep feeling of love and music, which affecting the most delicate strings in the soul of a person.

If we were not surrounded by music, how much poorer would be our culture, art and our very life. Music around us from birth to death. She can not only please and cheer up, but also console in a difficult moment of life. She exalts us.

If we talk about love, then this exalted feeling gives rise in every lover to such emotions and passions that can either raise a person to the heights of happiness and bliss or throw him into the abyss of base passions.

 The great geniuses of literature (V. Shakespeare, I.V. Goethe,, Dante, F. Petrarch, A. Pushkin ....) give us many similar examples, so we believe that this topic will be close and interesting to most of you.

The format of the books is arbitrary, convenient for shipping and transportation. The number of books is not limited.

Each participant will receive a DIPLOMA. A version of the electronic CATALOG is being considered.

The deadline for submitting books is March 30, 2020.

All received books remain in the “Book of the Artist” fund for further expositions.

about the international exhibition of graphics “GRAPHICS. Century XX1 »


Dear friends and colleagues!

In the process of preparing exhibitions in the format of the Artist’s book and communicating with you, I had the idea to hold an international exhibition of modern graphics (watercolor, pastel, etching, drawing ...).

In the process of creative searches and work, each of us has accumulated a lot of preparatory material for subsequent serious work, and this material often remains unclaimed, but, as we understand it, it is of some interest, since knowledge, skill, ideas and finally time wasted.

Most importantly, unlike the Artist’s book, participation in this exhibition will not require additional efforts and time for you to create them, you just need to look through your folders and select works.

When I voiced this idea to my friends, russian and foreign artists, I met full understanding and support for this project. I hope that the idea of this exhibition will find understanding and resonance in your hearts and you will support the project.

We do not limit the exhibition to any specific topic, format of work, technique of execution and material ... The only wish is that the work be completed after 2000.

Each participant will receive a DIPLOMA, an electronic version of the CATALOG will be made, which each participant will receive.

Deadline for work is September 30, 2020

The works remain in the fund for further expositions.

       Dear friends and colleagues! In September 2018, we plan to hold another exhibition. Her theme is "The Seasons". The theme of this project we associate not only with weather and nature, but also with periods of human life, as well as with the philosophical aspects of our being.

        In our opinion, this topic is rather diverse, multilateral, gives wide opportunities for creativity and self-expression.

        We do not limit artists to the format of books, nor the technique of performance, nor material ... complete freedom.

       Another important aspect of choosing this particular theme is to enable young artists who do not know the art of binding books and other subtleties of their production to participate in the project. They can execute the Book of the Artist in separate sheets, on which you can depict any subjects, providing them with short phrases that complete the visual side, and the masters who know the art of casting hand-made paper can use some original form, and their books will introduce a variety  of our project.

        Each participant of the project will receive a memorable DIPLOMA.

        I hope for the active support of  this project and the participation of a wide range of artists from Russia and other countries of the world.

       The number of works is not limited. The deadline for submitting works is August 15, 2018.

        All the received books remain in the "Book of the Artist" fund for further expositions.

        Telephones for information: (8-8332) 67-01-37,    mob.  8-912-822-69-40;          8-951-351-74-31.
