Opening of exhibition "On the Surface" by Andrey Berger
The opening of exhibition "On the Surface" by Andrey Berger will take place on December 22. To ensure safety, a visit to the opening is possible as part of a limited group from 18.00 for a half-hour session, subject to prior registration on Timepad and observing the mask regime and distance.

The project was the final result of the work of Andrey Berger in the art residence of Gallery 9B. This is a series of experimental collage works created on the basis of an artistic study of the urban environment of Nizhny Novgorod with its historical and architectural contrasts, unique geometry and landscape.

Ideologically, the artist connects this cycle with his work on the street. Over the past year, he has been engaged in partisan posting of copyright posters on city streets, observing the changes in works - natural destruction, painting, emerging tags, advertisements and announcements. Andrey sees in this spontaneous grassroots process a creative action, a plastic language that inspired him to create a series of studio works presented at Gallery 9B.

Art party
On May 28, we invite friends of the gallery to the art party. The reason for her is pleasant: our friend, artist Nastya Belaya is finishing the Nizhny Novgorod Art School and is preparing to continue her education in Moscow. She is a young aspiring author and as a support we are hosting a festive display of her art series entitled "The Train Has Left in a Different Direction", which echoes an ironic statement towards her non-academic style. The painting of Nastya Belaya embodies the delight of provocative contrasts in the spirit of pop art and fields of open flowers that break out of the outlined space. Graphic design, simplified interpretation of shapes and volumes, repetitive patterns, disruptions of natural color and deliberate naivety of plots that seem to have descended from the pages of children's books. The artist's world is a charming fantasy seamy side of everyday life, inhabited by eccentric characters, talkative objects and good-natured monsters.
