The interregional exhibition of artistic textile “Sunny Way” will be opened today, October 8, in the Ufa’s Art Gallery and this the result of three-year creation, which participants mastered the tricks of weaving - handmade and at the domestic looms – literally recollecting the handicraft of their grannies.
The painters fr om Ufa Salavat Gilyazetdinov and Basil Khannanov are the authors of the idea and initiators of the exhibition. They didn’t want the skills of the national masters once disappeared forever and attracted the applied painter Zoya Lebedeva from Izhevsk to this work. She took the training part of the program on herself.
The symposiums and master-classes were held two times in Ufa in 2008 and 2009 and in Naberezhnye Chelny in 2009. In 2009 the exhibition, which included the art works, created during the symposiums, was demonstrated in Moscow, in the all-Russian Decorative and Folk Art Museum.
The exhibition-2010 in Ufa is the final stage and painters from Bashkiria, Tataria and Udmurtia are taking part in it. Besides, the scrappy sewing festival “KORAMA-TUI” is held in parallel in the Folk Art Center “Ural”, wh ere the amateur painters from 18 towns and regions of Bashkortostan are demonstrating their works.
