Boris Kuzma broke the record: he became the chairman of the Transcarpathian organization of artists for the sixth time

On Tuesday, June 26, members of the Transcarpathian organization of the National Union of Artists of Ukraine elected a new chairman. For the sixth term in a row, the regional organization will be headed by the People's Artist of Ukraine, a member of the National Academy of Arts of Ukraine Boris Kuzma.

Recall that for the first time he was elected for this position in April 1999 (elections are held every four years). This is the 19th year of B. Kuzma's chairmanship. And, it is a kind of record. 

78 members (out of 109 active members of the Transcarpathian organization of the National Union of Artists of Ukraine), as well as honorable guests from Kyiv, in particular, People's Artist of Ukraine, First Deputy Head of the National Union of Artists of Ukraine Volodymyr Zinchenko, attended the election meeting. First, B. Kuzma reported about the work done since the last election (in 2014).

Boris Kuzma was the only nominee for the post of chairman. According to the results of the voting, 72 of the present members voted for him, 6 - voted against him.  

According to the executive secretary of the Transcarpathian organization of the National Union of Artists of Ukraine Tetyana Ivanytska, at present, 109 Transcarpathian artists are members of the Union. Most of them are painters. 7 members of the Transcarpathian organization of the National Union of Artists of Ukraine have the title "People's Artist of Ukraine" and 21 - "Honored Artist of Ukraine". There are two winners of T. Shevchenko prize, an academician and corresponding member of the National Academy of Arts of Ukraine, a professor and three candidates of sciences.

A little bit of statistics. Over the past four years, 41 artists of the Transcarpathian organization of the National Union of Artists of Ukraine have become laureate of the regional Y. Bokshay and A. Erdelyi Prize in the field of fine arts and decorative and applied arts, and 68 personal and group exhibitions have been held in the "Uzhgorod" gallery.
