The history of artists in Blagoevgrad began in 1956, when Dimitar Mihailov, Argir Marchev, Stalio Stalev and Georgi Nozharov established the first Association of Artists in the City.
The first major exhibition of the Society, which involves only authors from the city, was opened a few years later, on February 6, 1962.
It is extremely important that the activity of the artists of Blagoevgrad has been growing in recent years. There are two schools of art which contribute the progress of art in the Blagoevgrad - the artistic classes at the High School “St. St. Cyril and Methodius" and the subject “Fine Arts” in the Southwest University in Blagoevgrad. This leads to the continuity between the artistic generations, proven by the presence of more than 60 active artists in the city of all ages.

In 2018 we commemorate the 70th anniversary since the founding of the Veliko Tarnovo Artists Association, today called the Veliko Tarnovo Representation of the Union of Bulgarian Artists. Established in 1948, for its 70 years of existence, the Representation collects and displays the works of five generations of artists who lived and worked in the old capital of Bulgaria. Among them are the dignitary names of Boris Denev, Vassil Stoilov, Lyuben Zidarov, Rafael Mihaylov, Yanaki Manassiev and so on, who set up the foundations and the high artistic standards of cultural life on a regional and national level. Nowadays the Representation prides itself on a multitude of artists whose works compile in continuity with modern forms of expression and creative communication.
The exhibition presents the project of UBA "Living Exhibition", realized with the financial support of the Culture Program for the Bulgarian Presidency of the Council of the European Union 2018 of the National Culture Fund.
The Gallery at 125 Rakovski Str. in Sofia has been performing 80 years of exhibition space in its original design. From the very beginning, the address is the same - the street name and number are "Rakovski" 125.
The gallery continues to be a center of fine arts and Bulgarian culture and continues to present artists from Bulgaria and foreign authors, including world-famous names.
