The Neskuchny Garden Art Gallery
Art gallery is a special space, destined to imbue the thirsty spirit of a person escaping the routine to reach the Being. Such thirst is inevitable; indeed, evolution of artistic taste and search for aesthetic sensations is not a burden, but rather a necessity for thinking and feeling sentient being.
The city lives in the moment and finds its rest in eternity. A busy trot of a slightly tired and drawn man is changed to a hasteless tread and proud posture of a townsman in such urban oases where music is intertwined in grey framework of reality, where colors of everyday life mix with paintings of the artists and acquire a new exalted meaning… It is the art gallery that creates this unique atmosphere of being involved in Art itself.
The Neskuchny Garden Art Gallery
The keen creative intuition of Irina Tumanova as singer, composer and poet has led her to necessity of founding an art gallery. Thus, in 1993 a marvelous venue appeared in Moscow – the Neskuchny Garden Art Gallery. This name, so typically Muscovite, has a reason behind it; the gallery keeps the private and intimate atmosphere of the Capital City – not of a bustling merchant center, but of a deeply sentient city of Moscow, unveiled through the masterpieces of great artists, who always endow their works not with creative idea alone, but with philosophical thought.
As of today the Neskuchny Garden Art Gallery maintains its deserved leadership in the top-ten rating of Moscow art galleries. One can always witness it on annual varnishing days at the Central House of Artists and the Moscow Manege. One can also enjoy the works from the gallery collection in a more intimate environment of small concerts, where the paintings create the atmosphere of creative flight.
According to Irina: “During this time the gallery the private collection took shape, evolved, acquired its own history and traditions. The masterpieces, which naturally surround my family, loved ones, and me, have magically affected my whole life. After my acquaintance with pictorial art I started writing poetry avidly. Thus far seven collections of poems have come off the press, each containing paintings from the gallery as illustrations. Later the melodies of my soul came to life. During the concerts, when I perform my songs, the paintings of Neskuchny Garden Art Gallery are demonstrated on stage as decorations. Thus our paintings live an intensive creative life. Thanks to books, poems and concerts, lots of people in various venues around the world have a chance to see them.”
