The Corneliu Dragan-Targoviste “March Charm” graphics, painting and watercolor exhibition, opened at Elite Art Gallery yesterday evening. Art critic Marius Tita was among the event attendees. “The cityscape is dominant in the works, where the characters are in motion, live, are awaken to life by the colors that sketch them. The artist is not oblivious to the rural area either, the houses and landscapes are emblematic for these works. The exhibition is the outcome of a year’s work,” watercolorist Corneliu Dragan-Targoviste said.The exhibition is open at Elite Art Gallery, 15 Academia St, thru March 15, Monday thru Friday, 11:00 am to – 7:00 pm, and on Saturdays, 10:00 to 2:00 pm, „Painter Corneliu Dragan-Targoviste is a constant revelation of fine contemporary art. Actually, we prefer to always discover the wonders offered by each synthesis, knowing that a Corneliu Dragan-Targoviste exhibition offers us new horizons and the pleasant mystery of discovery. After a deep immersion in the watercolor paradise, the much-awaited moment has come, of the descent of the acrylic into the thoughtful caressed and modeled touch,“ said art critic Mariu Tita. The Corneliu Dragan-Targoviste Exhibition traveled to Bucharest, his works having been on display at the Shanghai International Watercolor Exhibition, the only Romanian artist to exhibit his works at that Biennale. The artist is the only Romanian member of the Birmingham Watercolour Society (BWS), which counts 81 British and international members. ”My being accepted as a BWS member means another limit I have overcome in my attempt to know myself and to assess creative performances. It’s been a beautiful present which I received at a certain age, which I may say is one of artistic maturity, and my feelings are of both satisfaction and fulfillment!”, Corneliu Dragan-Targoviste confessed.Founded in 1907, the Birmingham Watercolour Society represents some of the best watercolorists at both national and international level. Talented watercolorists are encouraged to participate at academy selections, with two-thirds of the member votes being required for a new painter to join the society. Dragan-Targoviste became a BWS member having been the only Romanian watercolorist to display his art at a string of international exhibitions part of the Shanghai Zhujiajiao Watercolor Biennale.
