Constanta, October 25, 2013
Constanta Art Museum – Romania, Ruse Municipality – Bulgaria through the Art Gallery and the Lower Danube Museum, Calarasi – Romania, partners under the project SPIRIT OF DANUBE IN PORT COMMUNITIES, financed by the European Fund of Regional Development through the Cross-border Cooperation Program Romania – Bulgaria 2007-2013, are organizing during the period of October-November 2013, the traveling exhibition of The Ostrov Art Camp 2013.
Based on the experience and results of the previous project “Spirit of Danube”, implemented between 2008-2009, the new project SPIRIT OF DANUBE IN PORT COMMUNITIES aims to increase the visibility of the common cultural and geographic heritage on the Danube, to forge new economic and social ties in the Romanian-Bulgarian border region in order to raise awareness of the port communities regarding the exploitation of their mutual opportunities and to settle current issues on cross-border level.
During the months of August and September 2013, was organized in Ostrov, the painting and small sculpture Art Camp where artists from Romania and Bulgaria attended. Thereby, from Constanta attended 3 artists: Florin Ferendino, Lelia Rus-Pîrvan, Laura Nistorescu-Seniuc, from Calarasi: Victor Grigore, Mugur Coman and 5 artists from Ruse, Bulgaria: Valentin Georgiev, Vyara Georgieva Guneva, Krasimira Kirilova, Rumen Mihailov, Irena Parashkevova.
The camp location was chosen in assent with the project, in the neighborhood of the spirit of Danube; the artists had a common inspirational starting point and they combined the work in a studio with activities in "plein-air".
Within a spirit of fully collegiality and intercultural communication is being organized the paintings and small sculpture exhibition, opened at the Constanta Art Museum (October this year) and on a pontoon, within the danubian ports from Calarasi and Ruse (in November).
The length of the exhibition organized at Constanta Art Museum – located at Tomis Avenue, No. 82-84, is ten days, with the opening on October 25th 2013, at 2 p.m. The entrance is free.
