The State Committee for Work with Diaspora told APA that the exhibition was realized within a project named “Let’s paint our world together: the colors of Nagorno Karabakh of Azerbaijan” implemented by “Inexhaustible Torch” Cultural Relations Public Union. The project was financed by the Council of State Support to NGOs under Azerbaijani President, the State Committee for Work with Diaspora and Azerbaijani University of Languages. The works of Azerbaijan’s young artists Narmina Valiyeva and Shahla Gahramanli, amateur artists Yegana Valiyeva, as well as Azerbaijan’s young artists Leyla Rzayeva, who is living in the US, are demonstrated in the exhibition on June 6-22.

Chairwoman of “Inexhaustible Torch” Cultural Relations Public Union, Professor of the Azerbaijan University of Language Shahla Nagiyeva said that our female artists call the world to the friendship, love, peace and to say no to conflicts. We want to paint the world by the colors of friendship, love and peace through such projects.

Majority of 20 works describe Karabakh. “Khari Bulbul”, “Shusha mosque”, “Karabakh horses”, “Khojaly genocide” and other pictures give information about indelible traces of the Nagorno Karabakh conflict in our history and culture.
