The exhibition "Here And There: Between Two Shores" will be opened on August 2 in the "Mission" gallery at the State Cultural Institute under the Minister of Foreign Affairs. 

The exhibition, curated by Prof. Vasilen Vasevski, presents works by 11 Bulgarian artists who live and develop their artistic potential across the ocean - Tatyana Avdzhieva, Atanaska Tassart, Stanimira Radulova, Yordan Ivanov, Lucien Dimitrov, Vassilen Vasevski, Mariana Kalcheva, Kamelia Tomanova, Evgenia Petrova, Ivan Mihov and Kiril Manasiev. 
Bulgarian violinist Blagomira Lipari, who has been living and working in the USA for years, will join the program of the event with a solo performance.

The unifying link of the artists in the exhibition is not only their similar personal history, but also the group "Bulgarian Artists Abroad" created in 2007 with the aim of cooperation in the field of art to spread and preserve Bulgarian culture abroad. In its history so far, the members of the circle have organized over thirty exhibitions, numerous participations in festivals, competitions and other cultural events, which have made them an invariable part of the life of Bulgarians in Chicago and across the USA, reports the State Cultural Institute.
