Sholokhov Days in Yelabuga

03.08.2015

On July, 30, the Yelabuga State Historical, Architectural and Artistic Museum-Reserve opened an exhibition “Book Graphics on the Works of M.A.Sholokhov”.

The Museum-Reserve of M.A.Sholokhov and the Yelabuga State Museum-Reserve have long-standing friendly relations. In 2008, the exhibitions “The Millennial Yelabuga” and “Hussar Ballad” had a successful run in Stanitsa Vyoshenskaya. At that very time the homeland of M.A.Sholokhov was visited by schoolchildren– winners of the quiz “My Yelabuga”.

The exhibition “Book Graphics on the Works of M.A.Sholokhov” is held in the year of the 110th anniversary of the great writer and in the Year of Literature in Russia. Its work coincides with opening of the VIII All-Russian Spasskaya Fair and the VIII All-Russian Bell-Ringing Festival, which embraced the folk art masters from different parts of the country and numerous tourists.

At the opening ceremony Alexander Sholokhov, Director of the Museum-Reserve of M.A.Sholokhov, noted that the exhibition would help to understand the works by Sholokhov in a new way and to revive the interest to the Russian literature as a whole.

The opening ceremony was joined by the prominent figures of the Tatarstan Republic, museum directors, workers of culture and journalists.

Modern music and folk songs were a good present for the guests.

At the exhibition the guests were shown the works by the well-known artists illustrators – Orest Vereisky, Yury Rebrov, Victor Galdyayev, Nikolay Usachov, Vladimir Baklanov, Valentina and Leonid Petrov and Kukryniksy. The visitors will appreciate the variety of the creative search and solutions of the artists.

Each illustrator had a unique style in drawing and he skillfully depicted the scenes from “And Quiet Flows the Don”, “Virgin Soil Upturned”, “Tales from the Don”, “They Fought for Their Country” and not only gave an opportunity of a deeper understanding of Sholokhov’s works, but also brought the viewers into the bright and passionate world of the Upper Don Cossacks.

The exhibition “Book Graphics on the Works of M.A.Sholokhov” will run in Yelabuga until August, 26, 2015.
