On the 23d of June the Green Sofa Gallery launches an absolutely summer exhibition entitled “The Two Palettes”. Two women artists – Nataliya Bartkiv from Lviv and Lesiya Babliak from Kyiv will present their sunny, sincere palettes: flowers painted with love, still lives, interiors and landscapes where summer is everywhere, where everything is green and it is always warm. They have made it a point to ban negativeness. Well, positive worldview is the only thing that they share. In all respects this display represents two separate personal exhibitions in one gallery.
