Catch a Star !

Catch a Star is a Christmas exhibition at the Sariev Art Gallery, Dec.14th, 2005 - Jan.14th, 2006.

The main focus of the exhibition will be the hand-made Christmas postcards. It has already become a tradition for the gallery to invite a different author every year to produce them. This year?s author is Atanas Hranov, whose postcards not only carry a personal message, but contain a culinary feat, as well as the author?s personal monetary unit. The artist has replaced the traditional information carrier (paper) with a tiny bread roll that he baked out of flour after a recipe of his own. The message itself has been substituted with a silver coin that Hranov himself handcrafted. The postcards have no expiry date, and the coin can either be hidden in the Christmas bread (following an old Bulgarian tradition) or worn as a lucky charm all year around (it has a hole in the middle).

Catch your star this year in Sariev Art Gallery!
