The exhibition "Mother of God" opened in the Regional Art Museum yesterday. It was organized by the Hungarian Research Institute of the National Strategy and the organization "Kárpát-haza".
The opening was attended by the Chairman of the Regional Council Volodymyr Chubirko, the Consul General of Hungary in Uzhgorod Jozsef Bochkai and in Bertegovo Endre Salipski. The performance of the chamber choir "Cantus" added special atmosphere to the presentation.
Residents of the regional center will be able to see the works of 60 Hungarian artists, including three Transcarpathians - Ferenc Erfan, Attila Kopriva and Laszlo Magyar.
Though there is a common theme running through all the works, each of them is unique. Those are pieces of traditional iconography, and completely free original interpretation of the image of the Holy Mary. Different genres and techniques are presented: paintings and graphic drawings, tapestry, ceramics, sculpture.
The exhibition will run to June 30. After that the exhibition will go to Mukachevo, Beregovo and Vynogradiv, then - to Slovakia and other countries of the Carpathian Euroregion.
