kedrinaSeptember 1-18, 2016
Yasnaya Polyana Gallery 

This exhibition of items done in the applique technique opens on August 31, 2016 at 16:00. The title of the exhibition repeats the title of one of Svetlana Kedrina’s own poems.

“As long as I can remember myself, I have always longed to do creative work,“ she says. “I used to draw patterns, make dolls from various objects of everyday life, carve on wood, and finally, having reached a mature age, I got into making patchwork panels. I have been preoccupied with it for over thirty years.”


In early August, the Together Are the Earth and Sky, and I exhibition was shown at the Tula Historical and Architectural Museum as part of the Motley Glade Festival and Contest. It can be visited at our gallery in Tula from Wednesday to Sunday, from 11:00 to 19:00. Cost of tickets: free of charge for visitors under 16; 15 rubles for a discounted ticket; and 30 rubles for a full-price ticket. Cost of tickets for a guided tour: 30 rubles for visitors under 16 and for a discounted ticket; and 45 rubles for a full-price ticket.
