Levels of Skill

The National Art Museum of the Republic of Belarus Main building

The grand opening of the exhibition ‘Levels of Skill’ will take place on June 8 at 5.00 p.m. at the National Art Museum of the Republic of Belarus. It displays the works of the graduates from the Minsk State Art College named after A. Glebov. The exhibition is dedicated to the 75th anniversary of the college.

The college has been one of the leading institutions of secondary specialized art education in the country for 75 years. The Minsk Art College (as the college was originally called) became the first career move for many famous artists. Such people’s artists of Belarus as Mikhail Savitsky, Mai Dantsig, Viktor Gromyko, Arlen Kashkurevich, Leonid Shchemelyov, Georgy Poplavsky, Ivan Misko and Vasily Sharangovich studied here. Today, monographs have been written about these people, and their creative achievements have become the subject of scientific research.

More than 50 creative works (painting, graphics, sculpture, and decorative and applied arts) by the college graduates will be on display. These works present a wide range of creative manners and compositional schemes, attention to colors, tone, visual depth, plasticity and bright images. Each graduate demonstrates his individual style, talent and uniqueness. The artists’ works illustrate the link of times, the continuance of traditions and innovations in Belarusian fine arts.

An important part of the exhibition will be a meeting with the graduates of the Minsk State Art College named after A. Glebov. They are in different parts of Belarus. These graduates enrich the spiritual life, and they create Belarusian culture. We hope the exhibition ‘Levels of Skill’ will be a great gift for those to whom ‘Glebovka’ has become a home.

The representatives of the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Belarus, teachers and students of the Minsk State Art College named after A. Glebov, the representatives of public associations, teachers and students of art schools and studios, and art lovers will take part in the opening of the exhibition.

The exhibition will run until July 24, 2022
