The Pictures Making Lighter at the Heart

24.12.2012

According to the mass media December, 21,” was designated” a doomsday, but in Stanitsa Vyoshenskaya, on the contrary, the day was even lighter, at least in the exhibition hall of the People’s House, where an exhibition of a Don artist Nadezhda Shchebunyaeva, was opened.

A lot of visitors came to the exhibition despite the frost and wind of the day. They were unanimous about the success of the exhibition; it became a notable event in the Don culture.

The artist woman, who died three years ago, was warmly spoken about at the opening ceremony by Deputy Director of the National M.A.Sholokhov Museum-Reserve, L.P. Razogreyeva, Director of the Central Library System, L.S.Zairkhanova, a college teacher, V.A.Kochetova, a correspondent to the local newspaper “Tikhy Don”, T.Y.Balak, and others.

The speakers said that Nadezhda Shchebunyaeva was a creative and good-natured person; she did a lot for Stanitsa Vyoshenskaya, where she had lived for about 30 years, for the Museum, for the art of our region. As if come from the XIX century her painting and graphic works are so full of inspiration, that they will be admired by the viewers for a long time. Moreover, her artistic talent was wonderfully combined with the talent to be a kind, considerate and responsive personality, to empathize and support other people.

The initiator of the exhibition, the artist’s husband, also an artist, Alexander Shchebunyaev, thanked the guests, who knew and remembered Nadezhda Georghiyevna. He said that Nadezhda lived by her art and in her works she exactly and deeply expressed her inner world.

The exhibition shows more than 200 works of the artist covering her favourite themes as Pushkin century, Cossack flavour, flowers of the Don country, portraits of her nearest people and countrymen. She seemed to be dissipated in her art or might have gone to her favourite XIX century.

For a long time after the opening ceremony and viewing of the exhibition the guests had been sharing their impressions, amazed at the number and diversity of her works full of love and light.
