The first exhibition entirely dedicated to the history and current trends in Bulgarian stained glass, is returning to Sofia at the end of the year.
Organized during the month of September 2014 by the "Bulgarian art glass" Foundation and according to the idea of the artist Yuri Vasilev, the exhibition is presented until now in five Bulgarian cities - Sofia, Varna, Veliko Tarnovo, Stara Zagora and Sliven.
Traveled many miles throughout 2015, the exhibition "Bulgarian stained glass" is back in the capital enriched with new works by artists already presented, but also with new names in the author list.
„The wings of the roots” unites 43 authors from "Monumental arts" section in the Union of bulgarian artists with 80 works of painting, wood carving and mosaic. The theme of the exhibition are the bulgarian myths and legends, the history and archeology.
Artists from section "Monumental Arts" select for this year's exhibition a concrete reason - their trip to Turkey a few months ago. They named it conditionally plain-air, although impressions of what they saw turned into artistic image later.
