"Ilko" gallery is a space where numerous art, cultural and educational events of the region take place. These walls remember participants of the spring "Silver Easel" – it was here that the contestants worked on the most difficult task "Improvisation". Therefore, for individual participants, who participate in the contest again, it caused pleasant memories, for others – fresh impressions.

Anastasia Shevchuk – a contestant who studies at the Polish University, says: "I registered for the contest quite by accident, but did not regret it at all. "Silver Easel" – a very important event and a unique opportunity to improve yourself. Especially you understand it here, in a beautiful art centre. I compare this gallery with the European one and I must note its high level. As for the exhibition, this is an incredible breath of inspiration. I adore watercolours, although I mainly use oil. There are very interesting improvisations and landscapes and there is much to think about, especially before the first contest day."

A participant from Hungary, Gergo Bankuti, was happy to share his impressions of the gallery and exhibition: "I really liked this art space. Such a modern and laconic gallery, such an interesting exhibition! In general, I like the watercolour painting, but I am ambivalent about realism because I like not a fixation of the environment, but the reproduction of what the author feels."
