Continuing with Exhibition Series “2+2”
A continuation of exhibitions of four students namely Diana Harutyunyan, Syuzanna Barseghyan, Milena Terunyan and Ani Sargsyan from Computer Graphics entitled “2+2” was held yesterday at the exhibition hall “Albert and Tove Boyajian” of State Academy of Fine Arts of Armenia.
The Rector of SAFAA Aram Isabekyan and the dean of Design and Decorative Applied Arts faculty Avetik Avetisyan extended their congratulations wishing them creative achievements.
The head of Painting and Drawing chair Vahe Gasparyan went into details noting that all of that was the result of very intensive work of mainly two of the students as far as they prepared a way too many works that required organization of another exhibition. “On their way of preparing for the diploma works, they also made others going farther in the sphere of computer graphics, thus they took the path of established artists-designers who claimed by their creations that they deserve to be treated like that”.
He also pointed out the importance of the exhibition hall and the officers of the hall, the work of Irina Isabekyan and Liana Khachatryan that is full of dedication, love and care. “This hall is one of the coziest places of the Academy that enables students to be exhibited not only during study years but also after it. It is your first small step, that will be later on added to the list of your further exhibitions and for this first step you owe to the hall of Albert and Tove Boyajian”.
The latter is in Yerevan and met a warm welcome by the participants and guests when visiting the exhibition.
SAFAA, throughout its existence from post-soviet era and even a decade after it, hasn’t had an exhibition-hall so important and vital for its functioning. During those years nobody had a chance to be exhibited while studying and it wasn’t even encouraged; it was a dream for most of artists. In 2001 this dream came true by the initiative and efforts of the Rector Aram Isabekyan when with the care and support of his old friend and American-Armenian businessman Albert Boyajian it became possible to build the exhibition hall. It’s already 21 years that hundreds of exhibitions of teachers and students both group and solo have been held here. It also hosted authors outside the Academy and outside the country as well, like from Diaspora Armenia.
“With its activity Albert and Tove Boyajian exhibition hall has claimed its place to be one of the most loved corners of Yerevan appreciated and regularly visited by art lovers”.
