The works of the participants of the Sophiiskyi Plein Air-2021 are presented in the exhibition halls of the Zaborovskyi Gate

The annual art event, which has been held on the territory of the National Conservation Area “St. Sophia of Kyiv” and in its monuments since 2014, unites everyone who wants to paint. Its participants are amateurs and professionals (painters, graphic artists, illustrators, architects, etc.), students and teachers, children and adults.

The purpose of the plein air is to preserve the interest in the national heritage and traditional drawing from nature. As well as the opportunity to demonstrate different approaches to the image of a natural motif, dictated by personal preferences or professional training of participants.

Each plein air ends with a final exhibition, which is presented for your review. Its participants were 28 artists who painted outside and inside not only the St. Sophia Cathedral, but also the Golden Gate, St. Cyril’s and St. Andrew’s Church.

The technique of performing the images is different, the sights are presented in general and in detail. Regular participants were invited to perform a plein air portrait.

We wish you a pleasant viewing!
