"Art Expeditions" this time joined Uzhgorod and Hlukhiv
On March, 26, the organizers and participants of the cultural project "Art Expedition" visited Uzhgorod.
The project started last year to establish cultural relations between the center and the most remote corners of the country, restore communication between creative artists, give little towns the status of artistic centers of Ukraine, return to the traditions of cultural patronage.
For Uzhgorod, it is the second visit of the "Art Expeditions". The first one took place last autumn. Then, a group of artists presented paintings painted during the previous expedition to the city of Hlukhiv (Sumy region). The artists sold some of their paintings and donated the money to support the Ukrainian army. In Uzhgorod, the masters had a plein air during which they immortalized attrations of the Transcarpathian capital on canvas.
This time, the Amateur spiritual choir from Hlukhiv performed on the stage of Uzhgorod College of Culture and Arts. According to the artistic director Katerina Kobzar, Hlukhiv is one of the most interesting parts of the left-bank Ukraine rich in historical events and famous personalities, including, in particular, composers D.Bortnyansky and M.Berezovsky.
According to the project manager Lyudmila Hararuk, the nearest plans of the "Art Expeditions" is to visit with creative meetings Kyiv, Zhytomyr, Vinnytsia and Khmelnitsky regions and to bring Transcarpathian performers and artists to the tour.
