Union of Bulgarian Artists / Exhibitions / ArchiveFestival of contemporary bulgarian ceramics - Sofia 2018
This year, more than 40 participants of different ages will perform in the exhibition. The festival goes out of the guild environment and opens to artists who are not ceramists, but they also use clay as a material in their work.
The special guest at the festival is a sculptor Spartac Dermandzhiev.
A self exhibition will present Silvia Chaneva - the winner from the previous festival in 2017.
The 100th anniversary of the birth of Yova Raevska (March 4, 1918 - August 17, 2000) will be celebreted during the festival days. She is among the innovators who modernized mid-century Bulgarian artistic ceramics. The original creative approach and the plastic richness of her works make it worthy of a personal place in the history of modern Bulgarian art.The Festival of Ceramics presents selected examples from Yova Ravska's four strongest creative decades (yovaraevska.com).
