Tales Alive – Tales Alive – an exhibition of paintings from the museum’s collection. The paintings were restored thanks to everyone who participated in the LETS’ PUT PAINTINGS BACK IN THE MUSEUM donation campaign organised by NIGHT/Plovdiv and the Plovdiv
This year the museam celebrates a triple anniversary: 100 years since the museum was established, 170 years since the Kuyumdzhioglu house was built and 80 years since the death of the museum’s founder Stoyu Shishkov. We will celebrate with an exhibition of 20 paintings by notable Bulgarian artists: Darena Georgieva, Petko Vladov, Encho Pironkov, Anastas Staykov, Elza Goeva, Kolyu Vitkovski etc. The paintings show scenes from the everyday life, work, household arrangement and holidays of Bulgarians in the past. They show different aspects of the lives of our ancestors but they are seen through the living eyes of the artists and still pertinent to our the present.
