new york 1On June 18, 2018 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm At the Crossroads of Asia and Europe; 20th Century Masterpieces from the Kasteyev Museum of Arts in Kazakhstan opens at the Grand Gallery of the National Arts Club in New York. The exhibit follows the development of Kazakhstan’s fine arts tradition through the 20th Century, including paintings by the founders of Kazakhstan’s modern visual arts movement. The exhibit closes on July 15, 2018.

Kazakh crafts and decorative arts have a hundreds-of-year-long history, stretching back to the era of the Great Silk Road and beyond. Rugs, weaving, woodcarving, leather working and metal working are part of a bright tradition of national colors, patterns and symbols which grace utili-tarian objects of striking beauty. Painting and sculpture on the other hand came to prominence much later.
