The exhibition of decorative felt to the motives of the Bashkir epos “Ural-Batyr” has taken place in Ufa, the Culture Palace “NEFTYANIK”. The participants and guests of the show, organized by the Friendship House in the honor of the Republic Day celebration, might watch 24 works, sent to Ufa by the masters from different towns of Bashkortostan.
“This is just a half of what we’ve received” – the exhibition’s curator, the director of the art gallery “Ural” Karima Kaidalova says – “We’ve collected 40 canvasses and today the interest in felt survives through a sort of renaissance – along with the traditional felt methods we can watch absolutely new ones, such as needle-punching, insertion of other cloths, the use of the mixtures of different materials, decorations, colored threads and other impregnations”.
The demonstration of all felt works, collected by the art gallery “Ural” will take place in October in one of the Bashkir towns, admittedly in Beloretsk.
