Exhibition Atmosphere by Ekaterina Smirnova
Water, mist, watercolor about atmosphere… In a rainy day of April 26 Villa del Arte Gallery has opened my solo show in the center of Barcelona. 18 recent works of watercolor are wonderfully displayed for public view at the unique gallery space, which is a part of the Barcelona’s Cathedral. Works that I have selected are meant to say a story of two cities, New York (my home base city) and Barcelona. At the show you can find open landscapes as well as architectural details close up, urban or natural scenery. But most importantly the atmosphere of early morning or late night.
I am very happy to be showing in Barcelona, this beautiful and artistic city. At the opening I was able to meet very international guests, not only the invited by also people who passed by the gallery and decide to come in. Talented representatives of the gallery were kind to help me communicate with guests on French, Italian or German. Overall an absolutely wonderful and friendly atmosphere was created during the opening. Champagne and fresh oysters has complimented the evening.
I am working with Villa del Arte Galleries for over 2 years during which my works were shown many times around the world, in London, New York, Miami, San Fran, Hong Kong and many more. I was glad to meet the crew of Villa, people who were so professional helping to arrange the show, framing and hanging my large works, designing the catalogue, posters and cards… Thank you Villa for organizing this show!
A very special guest, my mother, has come for the opening from Russia!
I love rain, I think it was a nice point at the opening, as it works so well with my paintings.
