The Aral: the Lost Sea

1974A new solo exhibition by Vladimir Gladkov titled ‘The Aral: the Lost Sea’ featuring 42 art and graphic works is opened at the Art Gallery in Svetlogorsk on May 16 at 4 pm.

As any keen person, the artist tries to see the world in its full diversity. This can explain author’s craving for knowledge, travels and new discoveries. Vladimir Gladkov’s series of works created during his trips to Greece, Italy, the Netherlands and other countries as well as those presented at the exhibition reveal the beauty and harmony of nature and human creation. But the focal point of the exhibition is the dying sea. The Aral we are losing step by step, still attracts artists. It gives an opportunity to create landscapes of deep philosophical message. As a result, every visitor can experience their own world view but make an identical conclusion – it is essential to safe vulnerable beauty of nature since we are one common together.

1980The exhibition is displayed till August 1, 2019.

See you at the Art Gallery of the Maritime Exhibition Hall (The Amber Hall, 11 Lenina Street, Svetlogorsk, Russia).
