Maria Preiger, CEO and founder of the Unity art association, opened the event by explaining that the exhibition is intended to expose artists who made Aliyah to Israel and have no way of presenting their works to the general public. The annual exhibition is one of the largest events in Israel designed for Russian-speaking creators, with the aim of supporting and encouraging more and more artists and businesses to share their talents and work with the Israeli audience.
UNITY ART was founded by Maria Preiger in 2014 as a non-profit organization to help and support Israeli artists. The association organizes exhibitions, festivals, fairs, fun days, workshops for children and adults. The association operates on a broad national basis and maintains extensive contacts and collaborations with public bodies and institutions in Israel and abroad to promote arts, culture and education.
I know it's last minute, but it's a great way to kick off the weekend so I hope you find time for it.
