Flower Extravaganza Opens at Uralvagonzavod Exhibition Center

February 26, 2013. An arts exhibition called the Flower Extravaganza was opened at Uralvagonzavod Corporation’s head plant’s exhibition center. The exhibition was launched on the 80th anniversary of women’s movement at Uralvagonzavod and the International Women’s Day. The exhibition comprises about 80 works by 15 well-known Nizhniy Tagil-based artists and some craft work, Uralvagonzavod Scientific & Production Corporation’s press service reports.

It is reported that the show organizers tried to shape a collection of fine arts completed by the Nizhniy Tagil artists in various techniques, such as graphic arts, paintings, water colors, oils, and pastels. The canvases created by the Urals’ prominent graphic artist, founder of the Nizhniy Tagil school of pastel workers, and member of the Russian Artists Union Viktor Mogilevitch feature lilacs and pheasant’s eyes. Enchanting lilies are presented in the painting by Igor Grishchenko, a member of the Russian Artists Union. Geraniums and rowan trees are depicted in the water-colors by Natalia Obukhova, the press release says.

What is more, one of Nizhniy Tagil’s oldest stone-cutters Valentine Bezborodov presented his artworks as well. His jewelry sets, necklaces, and bracelets are decorated with flowers made of malachite, blue elvan, turquoise, and filigree. Sergey Kislitsky’s Florentine-style mosaics made of marble, blue elvan, and fluor spar, as well as seed-bead flowers by Svetlana Nikitina, Ural Transport Machine-Building’s Design Bureau’s long-service employee, are also quite striking. Finally, the fineness of Van Gogh’s Little Place, a hand-made woolen picture by Lyudmila Semyachkova, is quite fascinating.
