Union of Bulgarian Artists / Exhibitions / ArchiveContemporary Ceramic Festival 2014

12.12.14 - 05.01.15 | Gallery - bookstore "Sofia Press"

The fifth edition of the "Festival of contemporary ceramics" is organized by the "Ceramics" section at the UBA and will be presented in the hall of the gallery - bookstore "Sofia Press".

This event is a continuation of the traditional annual ceramics exhibitions that are a feast for the artists - potters. Traditionally, the festival celebrated on 12th of December his patron - Saint Spyridon. This forum is the stage of the actual state of the ceramic art in Bulgaria. The exhibition aims to continue the artistic tradition to establish continuity between different generations of artists, and to demonstrate new techniques and aesthetic matters.

The festival has a competition theme: "The less is more”. Consciously it’s seeking a philosophical expression of plasticity and color created by ceramic material.

The "Festival of Contemporary Ceramics" 2014 is another form of expression of artists from different generations, this so ancient, hard, real and creative art, bearing the heat and power of the human hand and spirit.
