The earliest series of paintings participating in the exhibition is "Pancevo churches", It painted by Evgeniya Kashina during a trip to Serbia in the framework of the international project "Balkan plein air" in 2011.
This is followed by a series named "The Holy land of Pereslavl-Zalessky" and "Zaraysk, the walled city", written during the plein air with the Association of Painters and Teachers in 2015 and 2016.
"Churches of Pancevo, Serbia"
In 2011, for the first time, I took part in an international plein air, as part of a group of artists from Russia, Ukraine and Israel.
The plein air took place in the small Serbian town of Pancevo, 16 km from the Serbian capital Belgrade.
Pancevo, like Belgrade, was bombed by NATO, and some of the houses lay in ruins, and we were not advised to swim in the Tamish River.
The architecture of Pancevo belongs mainly to the 19th century. The city is spread out on a flat terrain, like on a platter, with towering spiers of Orthodox churches.
Churches are very different - some look like churches, some look like mosques, but they are all Orthodox.
The Balkan Plein Air project is a private initiative that brings together artists from different countries.
The goal of the project is to study and popularize the architecture, life and nature of the countries of Slavic culture.
"Balkan Plein Air" organizes creative business trips for participants, during which new cultural ties are established, and creative experience is exchanged.
From each trip, artists bring their own works - unique, made in different techniques, all of them are the result of a thoughtful artistic understanding of what they saw.
The project was supported by the Creative Union of Professional Artists and the Unified Register of Authors and Certified Works of Art "ARTREESTR" Project coordinator Anna Gorban

"The Holy land of Pereslavl-Zalessky"
It was a magical plein air.
We met the dawn on the shore of Lake Pleshcheyevo, in a thick fog, white as milk, and when it began to dissipate, huge multicolored balloons descended from the sky...
We danced and jumped over the fire on the night of Ivan Kupala.
We took the solemn oath of the Plein Air Artist, sang hymns and proudly wore purple ties.
We went out to write on a clear, cloudless day, and then suddenly a thunderstorm began. 5 times in a row.
The plein air was held by the Association of Artists-Teachers of Moscow and Moscow Region in July 2015 under the leadership of Elena Ivanovna Laricheva and had about 90 participants.
Pictures from the series "The Holy Land of Pereslavl" you can see here: "The Holy land of Pereslavl-Zalessky".
"Zaraysk, the walled city"
I was lucky to get acquainted with this ancient city in July 2016, during the traditional summer plein air of the Association of Artists-Teachers of Moscow and the Moscow Region under the leadership of Elena Ivanovna Laricheva.
It was a great time! We lived surrounded by an apple orchard, dined in a restaurant, took a taxi to the beach and painted pictures on the territory of the Zaraisk Kremlin and its environs.
Zaraysk is 1 year older than Moscow, and its walls withstood more than one siege.
I returned from the open air with 7 paintings, new friends and a lot of impressions.
Paintings painted in Zaraysk were exhibited at an exhibition of Russian artists in Cyprus in 2016.
