On 1st September, the History Museum of Voronezh State University opened the exhibition "Three names, three genres" which presented works by Svetlana Golovskaya (portraits), Arina Mestcheryakova (landscapes) and Svetlana Khondo (still life paintings).
'The University has always attracted lots of good things and it has always given back positive energy that has been shaping cultural and intellectual life of the city. At the moment VSU is going through a very important stage. It has made a lot of cultural achievements: The Theatre of Equals and the University Chorus have been created. We have organised meetings with famous creative professionals. Every day the University holds important events that change us and the world around us,' said the Rector of VSU professor Dmitry Endovitsky in his welcome speech.
The three artists are graduates of VSU. Since 1999, they have been working in the workroom of a Voronezh artist, an honoured art worker, and a member of the Union of Russian Artists Vyacheslav Znatkov – and are members of the artistic association 'Logos'. This association was created in 1998 as an art school for students of Voronezh State University. It was Olga Kunakovskaya – a lecturer of VSU – who came forward with the initiative to introduce students to art.
The exhibition was organised by the Culture and Education Centre of VSU, VSU History Museum, and the artistic association 'Logos'. The Voronezh band «Jazz Way Quartet» provided the background music during the opening ceremony.
The exhibition will be open for visitors until 9th October at the address: 1 Universitetskaya Ploschad (1st floor, VSU History Museum).
