Art exhibition The sky is The Friend

We opened exhibition of art pieces created at the 7th Feminist Art Colony, under the name The Sky is The Friend at Nis Culture Center Gallery. Milena K. O, one of the artists from previous colony shared her view of artworks:

"... Even when a woman is presented as a mass that is associated with the body or in the form of dresses, an association is gained with femininity and women's struggle in equality, perseverance in feminism and in organizing an art colony held in a ”holy place” of feminism, although many would not like to admit it. The spirit of Nadezda Petrovic, who founded an art colony under another name more than 100 years ago, is always present there and with every work created in all previous feminist art colonies, her spirit of freedom lives and spreads among artists".
