Useful tips for beginners

Our recommendations are created for art lovers with little experience of visiting exhibitions. We hope that these simple tips will help you get the most pleasure out of contemplating paintings.

Make sure you go to an event the subject of which is different from what you are interested in. For example, if you prefer Renaissance art, visiting an exhibition of a minimalist artist or a representative of contemporary pop art will be a good experiment for you. This will help you get rid of clichés, broaden your mind and get aesthetic pleasure from new experiences.

If the exhibition has no age restrictions, take your child with you. You will be surprised at how original and accurate the children's interpretations of the masterpieces of visual art can be!

An exhibition in an art gallery is a mini-performance that you can stage-manage. Take your time: don't try to expeditiously look at all the exhibits, especially if there are many of them. A quickie tour of a museum will leave a vague aftertaste – the best option would be to choose several works that caught your attention. Spend enough time in front of them to see the smallest details, to evaluate the play of shades and the artist’s idea in general. Pay attention to the placement of the piece – often neighboring canvases are no less interesting.

Before going to the exhibition, look up the information about the artist on the Internet. If you are going to enjoy the works of a contemporary painter, do not miss the opportunity to hear their speech during the opening of the exhibition – so you will get a more complete picture of the author and be able to feel your involvement in the creative process.

Have only good impressions and tons of fun!
