On December 11, 2018, the Regional Final Exhibition-Competition named after Afanasy Kulikov will begin work in the Kaluga Museum of Fine Arts (103 Lenin St.).
The Regional Final Exhibition-Competition named after Afanasy Kulikov, which has become traditional today, has arisen for more than 20 years as part of the program for supporting fine art in the Kaluga Region.
In 1993, in order to preserve and develop the creative process in the Kaluga region, the community of employees of the Kaluga Museum of Art and artists - members of the Kaluga branch of the Union of Artists of the Russian Federation, put forward the idea of creating an exhibition project-competition of regional scale, which would cover a variety of creative searches of artists from different areas Kaluga region.
The idea immediately found support in the Regional Department of Culture, which helped put the project into practice in January 1994. It was then that the Regional Final Exhibition-Competition named after Athanasius Kulikov for prizes in the field of fine art was held for the first time at the Obraz Art Gallery.
The main goals that the organizers of the contest adhered to were: motivating contemporary participants in the regional art process to create iconic works of art of a high level and developing and preserving the artistic features of the Kaluga Region, including through the purchase of works by award winners in gallery funds.
Today, following the results of the Regional Final Exhibition-Competition named after Afanasy Kulikov, ten prizes in the field of fine art are awarded for the most talented, specific work of fine or decorative art characterized by novelty and originality in the following categories: painting, graphics, sculpture, decorative and applied art, created over the past three years. This allows not only creatively stimulating artists and masters of the Kaluga region, but also supporting them financially.
Since 2014, the Regional Final Exhibition-Competition named after Afanasy Kulikov continues to live within the walls of the Kaluga Museum of Fine Arts, which every year at the end of autumn and the beginning of winter opens its doors for everyone to take part in the exhibition and to evaluate the presented works as a spectator.
