Friday, 28 August 2009
 On August 23rd 2009, an art exhibition of Serge Arden entitled "Photo Still Life" was held at the public hall of St Cyril Turau Cathedral, located at 401 Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn.
Visitors enjoyed an exhibition consisting of 14 photo art works and 5 paintings. The photo presentation constitutes a new path in the museum's activities  since, previously, photographic works had not been exhibited at our cultural centre.

Zianon Pazniak, the art critic, gave the audience an intelligent and detailed critique of Arden’s works. He noted that the artist possesses an excellent sense of color and projection. Everyone agreed with this view since the brightness of the works both elevated the visitors’ mood in addition to creating a very warm atmosphere throughout the exhibition venue.

Many of Serge’s photographic still-life compositions dealt, allegorically, with Biblical themes such as the triumph of light over darkness and of life over death through the medium of faith.

At the end of the reception, Serge noted that he has always kept Belarus in his heart despite residing very far from his Motherland. He then surprised us all by graciously donating all the works in the exhibition to the Belarusian Museum, as well as several of his signed works to various guests.

The management and curatorial staff of the museum wish to thank the many guests and visitors to the exhibition for the attention and respect that they paid to this new, young emissary of Belarusian culture.

We invite all Belarusians of the greater New York area and throughout United States to visit our museum. Every Sunday, any visitor is able to come and become familiar with the works of many different Belarusian artists.

The work of Serge Arden will be exhibited through September.
