Knowledge Day in Osmerkin Museum

    On September 2, 2019, a charity culture and art event “Open Doors Day”, dedicated to the Knowledge Day (September, 1) was held in the museum.
    On the first day of the academic year, 3rd-year students of the Faculty of Pedagogics and Psychology of Central Ukrainian State Pedagogic University named after Volodymyr Vynnychenko came to the museum with their lecturer Yuliia Malezhyk, Ph.D. in Pedagogics, a member of the National Union of Folk Art Artists of Ukraine.
    The future teachers of the elementary school enjoyed the guided tour conducted by Vita Chernova, the museum director, who told them about the life and work of the outstanding fellow-townsmen – a painter Oleksandr Osmerkin and his uncle, architect Yakiv Pauchenko, in whose house the future Professor of Painting was raised in the atmosphere of art. The history of the paintings' creation and the museum legends fascinated the students; especially they were impressed by the dramatic events in the life of the painter and his selfless love for his wife Nadiia Hryhoriivna, who was the initiator of the museum foundation. The students took photos by the portrait of the artist’s wife.
    The museum guests also were fascinated by the themed art exhibitions “Summer Vernissage” to the 25th anniversary of the museum opening and “Rise of Ukrainian Spirituality” to Ukraine Independence Day. Both exhibitions present works of Ukrainian artists from the museum collection. The girls enjoyed contemplating the works of their colleagues, students of the Subdepartment of Art and Graphic Art of the Art Department, shown at the exhibition “Vytynanka about EVERYTHING” to Youth Day.
     This was an artistic celebration of Knowledge Day for the students, who will soon teach and nurture pupils, promoting high art and aesthetic taste.
