Photogeographica 2019 14 May 2019
On Tuesday, May 14th, 2019, starting from6:30 p.m., we invite you to the opening of the "Photogeographica 2019" National Photography Salon, to be hosted in the Media Room (the wing towards Tudor Arghezi Street) of the "I.L. Caragiale" National Theatre of Bucharest. On this occasion, the catalog Photobook 2019 will be launched that shall contain, besides the awarded photos for the three sections: cultural heritage, natural landscape and wildlife, the most successful works in the contest’s photo gallery. The salon is open for visitation from May 14th to 30th, 2019 and brings together a selection of more than 1300 photos taken by the 200 participants from across the country. At the same time, there will be a series of events related to science, culture or sports themes, photography workshops and public awareness activities. Photogeographica was transformed from an annual photo competition open to the youth, complemented by a multitude of activities, publications, field expeditions and a permanent interrogation about the role of this genre into a "phenomenon-movement." The standard grew year by year, and the prize-winners became respected professionals, with trophies in prestigious international competitions, illustrated publications and albums, who made personal exhibitions. Their images are not only a document, but also an incentive. Natural and cultural heritage is an important part of our identity and an inheritance that binds us. The project is run under the aegis of the Ministry of Youth and Sports, the Bucharest Cultural House, with the special support of the "IL Caragiale" National Theatre of Bucharest. Partners: National Geographic Romania, Zitec, University of Bucharest - Faculty of Geography, DJST Hunedoara, Student Club of Photographic Art, Radio Bucharest Fm, UNESCO ProNatura, Wild Romania, Artographic, Horticultural Photography Club Sibiu, Hunedoreni Photographers Association, Sfinx Spelean Association, GO4FUN, Photo Course, Association for the Conservation of Biological Diversity, Life Wolf, Focul Viu Spelean Association, Orizont Photoclub, Foto4ever, Exclus Prod, Centre for Environmental Research and Impact Studies, Romanian Scouts - Sf. Nicolae Local Centre. Photogeographica is the most important national event in the field of youth photography competitions, focusing on the promotion of Romanian values, culture and traditions.

By focusing on detail I want to show the perfection of God's work, the beauty and poetry of His Creation. The world is beautiful as He created it. (...) We need so little to be happy! When I stand on my knees and paint, I pray to God to give me a little beauty to put in my paintings, much of which he put in his creation. And when the picture begins to bind, to appear from beneath the brush, then I feel a joy and fullness that heals all the evils and makes me happy. " A bliss that we want to sharewiththe visitors of the exhibition, who shall be open until May 19th, 2019. The exhibition can be visited daily from 10.00 a.m. to 6.00 p.m.   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    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.
