    Kseniia Bondarenko as the winner of the Diploma of Grand Prix of the First Biennale, according to the Statute received the right for the personal vernissage in the museum.

The presentation was prepared by the museum scientists.
    Not only colleagues and friends came to Kseniia Bondarenko’s vernissage, but also professional artists – a painter Volodymyr Tovkailo and a medallist  Viacheslav Popov who are the members of the National Union of Artists of Ukraine and laureates of the Regional Award in Fine Art and Study of Art named after Oleksandr Osmerkin. The artist received flowers and words of acknowledgment from Liudmyla Makei, a famous journalist from Kropyvnytskyi and an amateur artist who currently lives in Svitlovodsk. The journalists of the TV channel “UA:KROPYVNYTSKYI” came to cover the art event.
