Auszug aus der Ankündigung der Ausstellung:
„…The art centre’s painting collection is remarkably diverse in terms of artists’ geographical backgrounds, preferred materials and techniques. Quite a few works evince a wish to experiment with contemporary art, which, at times, can make their storage and preservation challenging. Still, artwork created in traditional media such as oil or acrylic on canvas is predominant in the collection and retains its value over time. Each work reflects the artist’s individual style and takes the form characteristic of a specific school of painting. Thus, laconicism and clarity alternates with expressiveness and boldly exuberant colouring. The exhibition “GOLD” displays only a fraction of more than 500 works currently stored in the collection. …“
