Ashgabat Byashim Nurali Art School is currently running an exhibition in its yard, devoted to Ashgabat City Day.On display are works by students, completing their studies in 2019.
For many of those, who do not see fine art as their career choice, this graduation exhibition is the last.And those boys and girls, who have decided to continue their artistic education, do not feel like bidding farewell to their beloved school.
The exhibition features graduates’ interpretations on the theme of The White City of Ashgabat’.Its rich variety of styles reflects a vast array of artistic skills and abilities of the students.
Visitors to the exhibition, including friends, parents and representatives of the Union of Artists of Turkmenistan, are treated to 63 works representing different forms of art, such as painting, sculpture, jewelry and carpet weaving.
Although the works are not graded, and there is no competition for the best work, the graduates watch the guests carefully trying to judge their reaction.Some of the works are particularly attention grabbing.
For instance, Ayna Annakulieva’s A Portrait of People’s Artist of Turkmenistan Saragt Babaev’, which was apparently created at his studio during an educational excursion.The graphic painting shows a striking resemblance to the renowned sculptor, who is instantly recognized even without a wall label.
A Circus’, a fine painting by Vyacheslav Rodin, which depicts two bold female riders performing breathtaking stunts, accurately reflects the emotional atmosphere of the scene.A colored pencil drawing, Motorcycle Races’, by Nuryagdy Kakageldyev reveals the intense competitive spirit and fierce rivalry among racers.
A portrait Dutar Players’ by Aylar Khojakova amazes by its beauty and inspiration.Mekan Pashakuliev’s A Mountain Landscape’ also irresistibly draws visitors by its scenic splendor.Good news was announced during our visit to the exhibition.
The art school principal Guljamilya Orazgeldyeva informed that seven students, including two graduates Bagdagul Meredova and Mengli Serhenova, had been awarded certificates at the 7th International Children’s Drawing Contest, The Joys of Tashkent’.
