10/22/2016 in the Modern Ukrainian Art Gallery “Gamma” the opening of a solo exhibition dedicated to the 25th anniversary of the creative activity of artist Vladislav Metelkin “My Ukraine” was held.
In the artistic space of the gallery, Vladislav Metelkin’s paintings further reveal their essence: the sunny canvases of such habitual but infinitely harmonious landscapes of Ukraine radiate warmth and inexhaustible love for their native land. The canvases impress with their scale, depth and realism – contemplating, involuntarily find themselves among the autumn forest or you feel the fragrance of wildflowers.
During the evening the guests enjoyed live jazz music performed by Boris Loginov, plunged into a warm creative atmosphere, had the opportunity to observe and participate in the collective creation of a new picture together with artists Alexander Melnikov, Vladimir Pivnya and Vladislav Metelkin himself. The audience took the opportunity to purchase fresh works by Vladislav Metelkin during an improvised auction. A touching part was the performance of his wife, Lyudmila Metelkina and the screening of a documentary film from the artist’s first exhibition. At the end of the holiday, a lottery was played with presents from the author.
