The artworks from the Gold Fund of UBB’s Collection have now reached Stara Zagora town. Starting today till 1 September the UN/NOTED exhibition awaits visitors at Zahariy Knyazheski Regional Library (44 Ruski Blvd.). Entrance is free and the library is open Monday through Friday, from 9:00 AM until 6:00 PM.

The one-of-a-kind selection creates unique opportunity for enjoying artworks of some signature Bulgarian paintеrs, among whom Haralampi Iliev, Zlatyu Boyadzhiev, Nikola Tanev, Hristo Kavarnaliev, Denyo Chokanov, etc.

The exhibition pays special tribute to three painting masters, whose life was linked to Stara Zagora. Atanas Mihov and Vasil Marinov were born there, while Ivan Popchev’s birthplace was the village of Dabovo, Stara Zagora region.

The first one, Atanas Mihov, is among the pioneers of Bulgarian landscape painting. His style is realistic as he also uses impressionistic means of expression. The exhibition features his painting Dry Tree dating back to 1935. The second artist, Vasil Marinov, embarked on genre painting and landscape. Stara Zagora’s library will showcase Army Supply Wagons, painted in 1917 and Flock of Sheep, created circa 1940. The third one, Ivan Popchev, created emotionally colored artworks, imbued with lyricism, also characteristic of his Late Afternoon, pastel on plywood, dating 1992.

The UN/NOTED exhibition has been launched on the occasion of United Bulgarian Bank’s 25th anniversary and displays part of the rich collection of the financial institution. By now, the exhibition has visited Plovdiv, Sofia, Pernik, Montana, Ruse, Haskovo, Gabrovo, Veliko Tarnovo, Varna, Pleven and Burgas towns. It features part of the Bank’s Collection. All paintings and graphics, 225 artworks in total, have been fragments of the interior of various UBB branches throughout the country.
