YEREVAN, FEBRUARY 11, ARMENPRESS: About the 80 have been chosen from
400 applications for the traditional exhibition-contest organized
on the initiative of the Armenian Artists' Union. Co-chair of the
union Ghazar Mirzoyan told Armenpress that the selected works will
not only be exhibited and deserve awards, but will also be published
in a separate book.

"The thematic is the Love for the God, homeland and beloved. The
choice of the genre and form of the work is free - decorative art,
sculpture, painting and graphic work," he said. According to Ghazar
Mirzoyan, the works occupied the 1-3rd places will be awarded with 100,
75 and 50 thousand drams respectively. They will be in 4 nominations -
"The Best Graphic Work", "The Best Painting", "The Best Decorative Art"
and "The Best Sculpture".

Another exhibition dedicated to Lovers' Day is intended on the
initiative of Armenian Artists Union, for which 450-500 applications
have already been submitted. "We cannot exhibit all the works, and
that is why we will select the best ones. This exhibition is not
competitive and is intended for amateur artists," Mr. Mirzoyan said.
