“After each ribbon cut a door opened to a new world full of beauty and aesthetics and a new exhibition is about to be opened reflecting and expressing women’s images, symbolism in the style of women’s philosophy and spiritual world. The main theme of the exhibition is about women and the colors of red, yellow and purple most commonly used in Turkmenistan,” said Vice Rector Prof. Dr. Tamer Şanlıdağ during the opening remarks.

“It is a symbol of deep friendship among other Turkic peoples. We are proud to be a part of such a project on behalf of the artists of Turkmenistan”, he stressed.
Minister Hasan Taçoy said that he experienced the excitement of entering the hall with the emotion of the painting with his own essence and movement, with the weight of men and women reflected in the large painting he saw at the entrance of the exhibition.
“You are experiencing the pleasure of not being able to resist the energy given to the human life by the red and yellow used in the works, while the attractiveness and brightness of the colors draw the energy given to the day in a very different direction”, he added.
