A festive exhibition, traditionally held on the eve of the Independence Day of Turkmenistan, opened in the Ashgabat Exhibition Center of the Union of Artists. The halls of the gallery exhibit new works of venerable and novice artists, graphic artists, sculptors, works of masters of decorative and applied arts and much more, representing a kind of creative report to the audience.
Among the famous artists there are debutants, one of them is the master of textile dolls Annabagt Tachmuradova, whose stand gathered a lot of curious visitors.
All the characters of Annabagt are handmade, and thanks to the patterns on the national costumes of dolls, you can recognize representatives of different regions of the country.
Natalia Kalugina, a painter and designer jewelry, presented a series of eco-jewelry based on Olga Mamedova’s works of art. Inspired by the artist’s paintings of Oguzkhan’s six sons and their wives, Natalia Kalugina created a collection of jewelry that figuratively embodies the water, mountains and sky powers.
Presenting the color of Turkmen art to the general public, the exhibition also reflects the history of the formation of state independence. Sultan Sanjar, Zelili, and Makhtumkuli, gazing majestically from the canvases, will remain in the people’s memory forever.
Centuries-old traditions are also emphasized in the ceramic products of Gulyara Babayeva – relief jugs and ripe pomegranate. National embroidery patterns transferred to canvas in Gulya Kurbanova’s paintings and landscapes of our native land never cease to inspire artists.
