The exhibition of posters "Extraordinary Cats" by Sergey Stelmashonok in Sieradz
Poland, April 19, 2012. Thanks to the active support of the Belarusian Cultural Center in Poland and its director Alexander Karachun another exhibition of works by the artist Sergey Stelmashonok «Nadzwyczajne Koty» was opened in the Polish town of Sieradz (Lodz).
At the opening ceremony of the exhibition there were not only the residents of the city, but the local journalists as well, including the reporters of two Polish TV channels. We offer you the Telewizja Sieradz report.
The director of the House of Culture Irena Kostrzewska noted that it is the first time when an exhibition of works by an artist from abroad was opened in Sieradz.
The exhibition itself is logically divided into two parts: one room - the mirror hall - hosting the series of works "Rock Cats".
The drawings and graphics by Sergei Stelmashonok were exhibited in the second room.
The opening ceremony of the exhibition was notable for an unusual concert of the singer Barbara Twardosz, who is also the Chairman of the Lodz branch of the association "Poland-Belarus". Lady Barbara sang songs and ballads composed by Bulat Okudzhava both in Russian and in Polish.
Slawomir Pawlak masterfully provided acoustic guitar accompaniment for the singer. And at the end of the concert he suddenly grabbed the microphone and sang the song "Black Cat" composed by Okudzhava in Polish, which seemed to be quite appropriate, taking into consideration the subject of the exhibition.
There were about one hundred residents of Sieradz at the opening ceremony of the exhibition. They really looked like enjoying the exhibition, as well as the pleasant surprise: they got cards with cats by Sergei Stelmashonok, drawn by the artist right on the spot.
This is the seventh exhibition of works by the artist Sergey Stelmashonok held in Poland and organized thank to the assistance of the Belarusian Cultural Center in Poland.
The previous exhibitions took place earlier in Bialystok, Warsaw, Siemiatycze, Lodz, Alexandrov Łódzkie. At present the exhibition featuring cats by the artist Sergey Stelmashonok is held in the Warsaw hotel "Art Villa".
