Exhibition of Final-Year Students’ Works of Decorative Applied Arts
The exhibition of Decorative Applied Arts students held yesterday at “Albert and Tove Boyajian” exhibition-hall was praised with words of gratitude and congratulation. The final works as a combination and sum of knowledge and skills gained throughout the academic years were highly appreciated.
The carpets, rugs and tapestries that decorated the walls of the hall are the result of caring work, the combination of handicrafts and arts, the use of traditional patterns and various pictorial innovations led to a beautiful result. It’s hard to imagine someone to be indifferent to ceramic art. Perhaps one of the reasons is that the material, clay accompanies human being from early ages and is important and useful for human life.
The exhibited works of applied arts with the existence of sculpture elements made the overall impression very attractive. This is another evidence of understanding and right relationship between teacher and student. This was the core of Maria Babyan’s speech of gratitude. The laboratory of Ceramics is enriched with the newest equipment and materials that is mainly the reason for such results. Vice-rector for Logistics Stepan Yezdoghlyan has a great contribution to the renovation and re-equipment of the laboratory; this was particularly mentioned in the speech of lecturer Konstantin Petrosyan.
Stepan Yezdoghlyan rarely takes a speech in such events but this time it’s an exception: He expressed his admiration for the works exhibited and wished good luck to students and highlighted the importance of the specialty they have chosen; as far as it is not only one of the oldest professions but also permanent, mainly in contrast to a number of new ones that are considered to be highly up-to-date, the majority of which appear and disappear with time.
“We helped you to overcome this path of an artist, opened up new opportunities to participate in different exhibitions held in Artists’ Union and the Academy halls. Thus we have had important exhibitions through these years. And now we have expectations from you; I wish that you continue your creative path and are exhibited further. You have one major obligation; that is to continue creating”, this was the wish extended by the lecturer of carpet-weaving, Hasmik Ghazaryan.
