As it was reported by the director of the picture gallery Kirill Zastorozhny, four exhibits were taken from funds of culture establishments, and other paintings, sculptures and graphics were provided by members of the regional department of the Union of Russian Artists.

"All of them glorify the beauty of a naked female body through the artistic perception of authors," he noted.

According to Kirill Zastorozhny, people often consider nude as depiction of naked people but not as an artistic genre with history, canons and meaning of its own, which does not allow them to see the depth of works.

In turn, the board chairman for the regional branch of the Union of Russian Artists Viktor Shabanov drew attention to the fact that the exposition was formed in a few days, which did not affect the exhibition quality.

"It is a test for maturity for each artist – they have a chance to show their understanding of this theme," he said

Victor Shabanov added that the exhibited works are interesting both individually and collectively, as they form a coherent piece of art.

"The exhibition turned out to be a success," he emphasized.

After the official part, the guests could make themselves familiar with the works and talk to some of the authors.
