A new approach to a classical theme in the icon-tradition
The international exhibition-community SIRIUS, is a group of painters who yearly exhibit their art with a common theme. The artists come from different countries, but mainly from Russia, Ukraine, Germany, Switzerland, Hungary and Norway.
In August 2011, SIRIUS arranged a visual art show in Yaroslavl, 260 km north of Moscow.
In the russian-orthodox religion, "The Transfiguration of Christ" is yearly celebrated the 19. of August. In Yaroslavl a feast took place during three days - with concerts, dance, performances and exhibitions. SIRIUS exposed paintings with themes related to the "Transfiguration", in the Kremlin Art Museum.
The festival is based on cultural traditions, and atracts yearly thousands of people.
