In fulfillment of the Decree of the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan dated from July 8, 2019 “On the preparation and celebration of the 28th anniversary of State Independence of the Republic of Uzbekistan”, the decree of the Council of Ministers of the Republic of Karakalpakstan dated from July 11, 2019 and the order of the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Uzbekistan dated from 11 July 2019, and the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Karakalpakstan dated from July 13, 2019, at the State Museum of Arts of the Republic of Karakalpakstan named after I.V. Savitsky organized an exhibition entitled “The Image of the Motherland through the Eyes of Artists”.
The exhibition features over 50 works by artists of Uzbekistan and Karakalpakstan.
The exhibition demonstrates various genres of fine art - landscapes, still lifes, thematic compositions stored in the museum.
The main goal of the exhibition is to strengthen the sense of patriotism among the people, at the same time enrich the knowledge and interests of the population in art, in particular to develop progressive ideas in the minds of young people.
The best and priceless works created by representatives of different generations were selected for the exhibition. Among them, I would especially like to note I.V.Savitsky, R. Matevosyan, who connected their whole life and work with our region. Artists with great interest and special love convey on their canvases a peculiar flavor, traditions and customs of our people, especially the way of life of people. In the works of artists it is clearly reflected that our region is truly their second Motherland.
The native land, being an endless theme for artists, has always inspired them to create more and more new works, through creations reflecting the rich cultural heritage and especially the historical past, artists have been able to masterfully convey a sense of love for the Motherland. In the works of A. Utegenov, A. Yerimbetov, J. Bekanov, B. Serekeev, U. Saparov, M. Antonov, J. Lepesov, M. Kudaibergenov, I. Alibekov one can feel how these painters were close to the people.
The exhibition, offered for the audience, where love for the Motherland is sung, will give even more festive mood and serve as cultural enrichment for the people on the eve of the 28th anniversary of the independence of our state.
