6 Art In The Village

Art In The Village

Posted on August 16, 2011 by team

Not every village can boast of having a picture gallery. And it is worth to say that ordinary villagers are usually far from high art. But Voskresenskoe village, that was lost somewhere in the south of Bashkortostan, is an exception. And the gallery is not the only attractive place of the village, there is also an old copper smelter.

Voskresenskoe village was born in Bashkirian woods in the middle of the 18th century. Then the first smelter in Bashkortostan was built there on the banks of the river Voskresenka. It gave the name to the village.

The plant was built, but it could not start working: in 1735 Bashkirs began an uprising, the dam was burnt and all bricks were carried away. Russians turned to be more stubborn: they crushed the rebellion and restored the plant.

    Interesting colony. No suprise the building is abandonded. Some of the art is a little primitive. However, the main pieces are nice. A lot of buzz about bees lately

    Really excellent stuff, thank you Alexander Belenkly(?) and ER.

    Were students at the Moscow school of Art really as young as 11 at that time? Whatever their ages the quality of their work shines out, even despite, or maybe as a consequence of, using spongy cardboard as a support instead of canvas – brilliant stuff.

    Critique – It could be said that this site itself uses broad brush strokes to convey all manner of material which opens our eyes and vision up to new discoveries every day.

    Even in the smallest Russian villages you find decent art. I am tired of “big cities” artistically poor in all aspects.

    This is really cool that this little place has this art museum. I like the painting of the ship and sailors. How much do they want for it?

    ;) I’m joking, I know it’s not for sale.
