The International Bosilegrad in Colour 2022 Plein Air, organized by the Glas - Bosilegrad Association and the St. Kliment Ohridski 1997 Student community centre in Sofia, culminated in a large exhibition of artworks created during the event. Seventeen artists from Ukraine, Bulgaria, North Macedonia and Serbia participated in the plein air, including both professional artists and art professors.
Inspired by the beauty of Bosilegrad’s rich natural surroundings, the attractive tourist sites, historical landmarks and local legends, the artists from different generations enjoyed seven days of cultural exchange and creative bonding. The participants in the plein air visited the Vladimir Dimitrov - The Master Gallery in his home city of Kyustendil (Southwestern Bulgaria), as well as Vlasina and Vlasina Lake, and the picturesque villages of Izvor and Bozica in Serbia.
The paintings produced as a result are exhibited in the garden of the house including the Glas Association office. The exhibition will be open until the end of July.
Expressing gratitude to the participants for joining the undertaking, the hosts promised to gather them again by organizing a combined exhibition in Sofia and Bosilegrad featuring the paintings created during this year’s plein air and the one last year.
