On Wednesday August 6, 2014 at 7:00 p.m., the Hamazkayin “Lucy Tutunjian” Art Gallery launched the exhibition of painter Rosevart Sisserian in the presence of a multitude of artists and art-lovers.
Ms. Suzy Derderian gave the opening speech in which she talked about Rosevart Sisserian’s impressive contribution to art in the education of artists and especially to the establishment and development of the Hamazkayin “Toros Roslin” Art Academy.
Sisserian’s paintings have their own unique quality and vividness, she said. Then, she noted that this exhibition, which represents the different stages of the Sisserian’s creative life, is organized to pay homage to the artist.
Analyzing her work, Hergelian revealed that, in search of themes to paint, Sisserian hasn’t gone far from her immediate environment and her home. As an example, her themes have been the flowers she had taken care of. However, he said, through her creative life, the petals of these flowers have separated from the flower, and received form and hue, and started to flutter sometimes turning into birds. This way her works have reached abstraction.
Hergelian noted that the painting “LE MARCHE A BOURJ HAMMOUD” (The Market of Bourj Hammoud) depicts the old market with vivid colors and lines so the new generation can know Lebanon better. He also mentioned that Sisserian has donated entire exhibitions to the implementation of charitable purposes.
In the name of the Hamazkayin Central committee, Havatian expressed gratitude to the artist, recognizing her contribution of many years to the development and growth of the community and especially in the growing operation of the Hamazkayin Art Gallery.
Mr. Havatian invited Mr. Megerdich Yapoudjian, vice-chairperson of the Hamazkayin Central committee, to award the Hamazkayin Medal to artist Rosevart Sisserian, who has with her high-grade art, distinguished title as an educator and benignity always stood by Hamazkayin, consequently by the Armenian culture.
The 22 paintings on exhibit are virtuous and heartwarming. They are eye-catching with their colors and lines; moreover, they are characterized by abstract expressiveness.
The exhibition continues till Wednesday August 13, 2014 from 9:30 a.m. till 6:00 p.m. on weekdays.
