Romania in Watercolor 22 January 2019
The best Romanian watercolor painters, in the exhibition “Romania in Watercolor”, hosted by the National Theatre of Bucharest   On Tuesday, January 22nd, 2019, from 7.00 p.m., the National Theatre of Bucharest shall host the first national exhibition of watercolor painting of Romania. The event shall take place in the „Media Foyer” hall, in the Intercontinental Wing of the National Theatre. The exhibition shall host the works of over 70 watercolour painters, professional or amateurs, young or less young, united for the first time under the „blason” of the International Watercolor Society, whose Romanian branch organises this special event in partnership with the National Theatre of Bucharest. The project proposes an extensive and complex approach of the watercolor painting technique. The International Watercolor Society is a non-profit organization founded in the year 2012 by the Turkish artist, residing in Canada, Atanur Dogan, and since 2016, it has also been active in Romania under the designation International Watercolor Society Romania (I.W.S. Romania), chaired by architect-artist Ovidiu Iovanel. I.W.S. was founded with the aim of promoting the oldest painting technique worldwide, Watercolor. I.W.S. aims at promoting respect, peace and harmony through the use of art – the common language of the whole world. The society’s activities involve bringing together watercolor painters and art lovers, watercolor lovers. Watercolor painting has been neglected and even despised for a long time, at the expense of other techniques. Festivals and exhibitions, national or international, are effective means of promoting watercolor painting, presenting the world with exquisite works of art. These events are also becoming points of interaction between artists, collectors and art experts, from various countries. The exhibition shall last from January 22nd until February 24th, 2019. The exhibition can be visited from Monday to Sunday, in the time frame 10.00 -18.00.   Translated by Simona Nichiteanu

The Circle exhibition 10 January 2019
The Circle, the first painting exhibition of the year 2019 in the Media Foyer (Arghezi) of NTB    The duration of the exhibition The Circle by painter Norica Vesca-Popescu from the Media Foyer (Tudor Arghezi wing) is prolonged until February 11th, 2019. On the Sundays of January 27th, February 3rd and 10th, 2019, the painter Norica Vesca-Popescu invites children to the exhibition space, to the Painting Workshops: ”They shall enter the universe of characters from my stories and paintings and much more. They shall learn from me, me from them, through play, game, we shall draw, paint, narrate”.  On Tuesday, January 22nd 2019, from 5.30 p.m., the Media Foyer (wing towards Tudor Arghezi St.) shall host the official opening of the painting exhibition The Circle by Norica Veșcă-Popescu: introduced by art critic Ileana Ploscaru-Panait. Starting with January 10th, 2019, the Media Foyer (Tudor Arghezi wing) is hosting the painting exhibition of Norica Vesca - Popescu, entitled The Circle. 50 works are exhibited, configuring a graceful and sensitive universe, reminding of the fairy-tale books with good fairies and a happy ending under the sign of love. ”My inner states have always led me towards the closure of forms, towards symmetry. In creation, I have materialized my passion for the symbolic universe – the painter confesses. Life is a Circle. The embrace is a Circle. You always draw circles around the ones you love. Because hearts can be broken, the Circle has no ending. (…) It bears a profound symbolism, even in folk art. The dance, the wheat ear crowns on the heads of the girls, two young people in a forest facing each other, holding hands, have their Circle, which is a bearer of messages. In the works from my exhibition we encounter this symbol through the characters’ movements, through what they convey, through the theme. (…) We do not see it necessarily, we must search and try to preserve it, which I invite you to do by contemplating my works…”.  The exhibition, which shall be open until February 25th, 2019, can be visited daily from 11.00 – 18.00, except for Mondays. Access through Tudor Arghezi St. or via the foyer towards Intercontinental.   Norica Vesca – Popescu graduated from the Arts University of Bucharest at the painting class of professor Stefan Caltia, year 2000.
