On Au­gust 23, the six- day Rus­sian Art Week opened at the Rus­sian Cul­tural Cen­tre in Bei­jing. The event was sup­ported by the Eurasian Art Union and served as a prepa­ra­tion for an art fo­rum on arts and ge­og­ra­phy, show­cas­ing paint­ings un­der the theme of “My Coun­try.”

At the open­ing cer­e­mony, Olga Mel­nikova, di­rec­tor of the Rus­sian Cul­tural Cen­tre in Bei­jing, de­liv­ered a speech wel­com­ing those in at­ten­dance. Or­gan­is­ers of the event also ex­pressed their sin­cere grat­i­tude to the di­rec­tor for her sup­port and as­sis­tance in putting to­gether this artis­tic ex­hi­bi­tion.

The event show­cased the work of artists from the Com­mon­wealth of In­de­pen­dent States as well as Rus­sia. More than 60 pieces, in­clud­ing oil paint­ings, pen­cil sketches and pho­tos, pre­sented the beauty of the artists’ coun­tries. The ex­hibits were di­vided into var­i­ous themes, in­clud­ing ar­chi­tec­ture, na­ture, an­i­mal life and peo­ple.

Rus­sian artists shared their paint­ing skills with event par­tic­i­pants and re­vealed their se­crets of “plein air paint­ing.” The event aims to sup­port peo­ple around the world who love arts, show­case the charms of Rus­sian art to peo­ple in Bei­jing and pro­mote Rus­sian cul­ture across China.
