FOR THE FOURTH WATERCOLOR BIENNALE BELGRADE 2016
During the last 19 years of the work of Gallery , a circle of reputable artists and circle or true
watercolor painting admirers were created under its aegis, all together connected with experience
of the beauty of subtle artistry. As a sign of cultivation of that collectiveness and of development
of inclination towards this basic painting technique, Gallery would like, beginning
from 2010, to start organization of International Watercolor Biennale. Fully aware of significance
and importance of realization of such manifestation, we were determined by knowledge
that there are no big and small galleries, and that is not important where they are, but that there
is, most of all, something which is happening and creating in them. With feelings of honor and
gratitude, we rely on your help and understanding.
We managed with great help of artist to organize First International Watercolor Biennale 2010
which gathered and presented 56 artists from 16 countries, on the Second one participated 97
artists from 22 countries, while on the Third one participated 97 artists from 25 countries. And
for the Fourth International Watercolor Biennale remains the same rule – artists give up of sent
works. Absences of Government assistance as well as huge financial costs for organization of
such manifestation (catalogs, money for awards etc) are preventing us of changing that. Continuation
of this project and rising of Biennale quality depend only on you and us.
