Tiberiy Szilvashi, Deputy President of the Jury, internationally recognized Ukrainian artist, curator of art projects, corresponding member of National Academy of Arts of Ukraine: “Silver Easel” is a great opportunity for students all over Ukraine to test themselves once again. As to the organization of the contest, it is necessary to emphasize that everything is done at a high level. For me, it was important to look at the methodology itself, compare schools, level of participants. It was difficult to choose among the works, many of which are at the same level of performance and style. The contest is very necessary for young artists, for educational institutions, and it seems to be the most important thing for me. I think that “Silver Easel” definitely needs to be continued.”

An art dealer, curator, art critic: “The contest is important not only for young artists but also for the whole art Ukraine. Undoubtedly, not only money and forces were invested in this contest, but, most importantly, the soul. In the works of the contestants, I saw freedom, courage, and a special technique of execution. I would like to wish them to be freer and to improvise more. “Silver Easel” has already spoken about a lot, and then, I think, people will talk even more. In the future, the contest has every possibility to enter the European space. I will be happy to come again to such an event. This is very interesting; I have rethought a lot. Even now I think what prize I can prepare for the future contest...”

Vladyslav Habda, Jury Member, a painter, Honoured Artist of Ukraine: “The circle of invited people is very important as, after all, the well-known artists came here. Students were provided with excellent conditions and they were inspired to create. Transcarpathia is a region where painting occupies a special place. Here you cannot be slapdash with painting – and the contestants got the idea! Art is such a thing that you can talk for a long time and say nothing, but you can paint a picture and say everything by it. Such opportunity, no matter who wins, is now given to these young people. The ability to show, compare and criticize yourself. And, this is the most important thing.”

Especially, it concerns the support of creative youth. After all, the young artist as a young tree that you planted. It needs to be looked after. When it grows and becomes powerful, it will be already a self-sufficient artist. To be a partner of such a contest is a great honour for us. We are glad that there are a lot of talented young people who are good at painting. All the tasks “Landscape”, “Portrait”, and “Improvisation” – at a very presentable level. In the works of the contestants, we saw mastery, creativity, non-standard thinking, and interesting colour filling. We believe that “Silver Easel” will be a big step forward in the creative meaning for all contestants.”

After all, a new generation of artists came to the contest – they make the future. “Silver Easel” gives them a push to feel themselves in the creative circle.
