On 17 March, the exhibition "Architectural Walks” by Nelly Frolova, a lecturer of the programme "Humanitarian Sciences and Arts” at the Faculty of Philology of Voronezh State University, opened in the Rector's Gallery of VSU. The exhibition presented 24 paintings. They included sketches of both landmarks of Voronezh, Moscow, St. Petersburg, and Ryazan and quiet and unpretentious nooks of different towns and cities.
Among the speakers at the opening ceremony were Dmitry Endovitsky, the Rector of VSU, Vladimir Listengarten, an Academic Secretary, Dmitry Zhukalin, the Head of the Department of Science, Innovation, and Information Policy, Larisa Rybacheva, the Head of the programme "Humanitarian Arts and Sciences" at the Faculty of Philology, Galina Khristova, the Head of the VSU folk music group “Terem”, and Nikolai Bliznyakov, the Head of the Department of Scientific Research.
The author is experimenting with artistic techniques and materials. For example, several urban landscapes were painted with instant coffee, and newspapers served as the background for some of the works. Nelly Frolova uses original combinations of materials: ink, chalk, watercolours, and marker pens. The artist's workshop is the city itself as all of the paintings were drawn from real life.
