Exhibition: 29 September 2004

An elegant gallery in the central part of Sofia attracts the attention with its style and atmosphere, with the exhibitions for small auditorium organized with esthetic precision. This is gallery Maxim of the Kaloferovs.

This time the exhibition is unusial. Artists - friends of Apostol, wish the jubilee many happy returns of the day with their works "In the World of Music". Musicians - friends of the jubilee play on his instruments. The exhibited violins, violas and violoncellos of the master seem to chat with the paintings. Superior to the dimensions of reality, they congratulate their creator.
