Happy birthday to the Plovdiv artist Kolyo Karamfilov, who also had his nameday yesterday!

The theme of the latest exhibition for the Christmas holidays at the Sariev Art Gallery has the provokative name "Whitely white"..

The authors taking part in that exhibition belong to various artistic trends in contemporary ceramics, photography and painting - popular names, as that of Petrinel Gochev, Ina Damyanova, Rada Dicheva, Kolyo Karamfilov, Olya & evtim Purvanovi, Yana Yunakova, Dimiter Petrov, Nadezhda Damyanova, Maria Dzhelebova....
