Stefan Pelmus - 70 06 March 2019
"From the very first sight, Stefan Pelmus's exuberant painting exerts a seduction so swift, that he transforms you at once from beholder into worshiper." The Bistriţa-Năsăud County Cultural Center, in partnership with the I.L. Caragiale National Theatre, within the programme NTB Paratheatrical - Visual Arts, organizes under the title "Stefan Pelmus - 70" an anniversary retrospective exhibition of the painter, curated by Antigona Silvia Rogozea and assistant curator Lina Tarmure. The varnishing is scheduled for Wednesday March 6th, 2019, from 6:00 p.m. in the presence of Ion Bogdan Lefter, Tudor Octavian and Sebastian Vlad-Popa. With an extensive experience in the artistic field, Stefan Pelmus (1949) is distinguished on the evolutionary path of contemporary Romanian art through a symbolic repertoire marked by a fabulous and abundant world. Bearing a message encoded by a vast register of hieroglyphic signs, his works convey the mystery and charm of the border between existence and spirituality. Its totemic characters and its labyrinthic world lead us to a place of universal-mystic genealogy, where the key word is the miracle. From the very first sight, Stefan Pelmus's exuberant painting exerts a seduction so swift, that he transforms you at once from beholder into worshiper. Stefan Pelmuş also exhibited in Rotterdam and Eindhoven, the Netherlands, participated in the Kosice Biennial, was present at Zoersel, Edegen and Brussels-Belgium and participated in the Ankara Art Biennial. His works were appreciated in the Wiesbaden, Five Plus Gallery and Art Bodensee galleries in Austria, as well as in Stockholm, Budapest, Munich and Ottawa, and his work was as well received in Paris at the " Saint Germain" and the "Soleil de L'Est" Art Gallery, which was awarded the Biennial Art Award in 2002. Stefan Pelmuş has exhibited in numerous galleries and museums in Romania (Museum of Art in Timisoara, Bistrita Art Museum), being awarded the First Prize at the "G. Patrascu" Art Biennial in Targoviste, the "G. Tătărascu" special prize in Bucharest and the Painting Prize of the Visual Artists’ Guild of Romania.

The Circle exhibition 10 January 2019
The Circle, the first painting exhibition of the year 2019 in the Media Foyer (Arghezi) of NTB    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 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. Member of the Visual Artists’ Union, Bucharest branch office. Governmental study scholarships in Greece, Egypt. Participations in yearly painting salons, visual arts fairs, creative camps, further yearly group exhibitions in Romania and abroad (1994-2018).
