Grand Opening of Shaternik’s Personal Exhibition “The Sun Cross” in New York

On January 18, 2009 the Belarusian Museum in New York hosted Ales Shaternik’s personal art exhibition “The Sun Cross”. Ales Shaternik is a famous Belarusian sculptor and artist. The exhibition also gives you an opportunity to get acquainted with his first poems. The fact that an artist has started to write poems proves that he is in constant development. The majority of the paintings are landscapes. The beauty of Belarusian nature is manifested by way of expressing its real mood, which is vital and substantial for the artist himself.

"Tsna River”(canvas, oil 2006) had a great emotional influence on those present at the exhibition. The painting is a piece of fine art; it gives you a real sense of Nature’s beauty. “The Holy Spirit itself is in the painting”, says Zianon Pazniak who did a thorough art analysis of Shaternik’s creative work. The painting makes an impression of being three-dimensional.
