REMEMBRANCE OF ARTISTS FROM ONE GENERATION


On Mar 21st 2017 at 5.30 pm the Art gallery of Dobrich opened an exhibition of four Dobrich painters.

The director of the gallery Evelina Handzhieva delivered a speech  about the painters saying:" Man is like that - he rarely looks back in the past. Hurring up to the future we forget the inner nooks discovered by our ancestors where like in an oasis one can take shelter.  And then filled up with the faith that art is continuation of life to go ahead.

Driven by this idea we remember artists from one generation who loved life. In their canvaces they tell about their times, native towns, the Dobrudzha nature and the sea shore with a strong admiration. The paintings are from the gallery,s collection.  The artists are not any more among us but their creation has definitely left a trace in the cultural life of the town: Angel Ivanov/1925 - 2014/, Dragni Tsvetkov/1927 - 1999/, Sabi Georgiev/1925 - 1994/ and Filip Filipov/1925 - 1994/. They are some of the founders of the Union of the Dobrich Artists which establishment before more than 50 years responded to the cultural needs of the Dobrich society.  

The arranged works harmoniously "coexist" in the gallery hall and are an example of the representational traditions in the aesthetics of the Bulgarian art in  60s till 80s of the last century.
