In this regard, the Municipality of Elena invites professionals or amateur artists to participate in the plein air, which will be held in the city of Elena from 7 to 10 July 2021.

The aim of the plein air is to ensure lasting sustainability of the project results – promoting culture through art and its transmission to future generations. In the event, participants from both municipalities – Elena and Medjidia will be able to acquire the best practices of painting, will have the opportunity to work outdoors and indoors, and professional artists will present the best painting techniques.

The plein air on painting will end with an exhibition, and the participants will donate the paintings of the municipality of Elena to the fund of the new art gallery, which will be housed in the burned down school in the city center. The cost of food, as well as all painting materials are at the expense of the project.

For information and bookings with portfolio presentation: with Svetoslav Petrov, project manager, by phone 0879626251 or email: iep@elena.bg.

Deadline for expressing interest until June 24, 2021.

Applications for participation will be considered by the moderators of the plein air.
