International painting camp in Calimanesti

The mayoralty of Calimanesti, along with the Paris-based Association for the Conservation and Promotion of the Cultural Patrimony, are organizing until July 27 under the UNESCO aegis the third edition of the ‘Vlaicu Ionescu’ International Painting Camp.


The painting camp enjoys the presence of important guests such as Myriam Provence, the president of the Paris-based Association for the Conservation and Promotion of the Cultural Patrimony, and Mariane Valcu, member of the UNESCO. On this occasion the painting exhibition of Romanian artists Rodica and Adrian Tarta will be opened.


‘There are 20 painters from several countries – Spain, Croatia, Greece, France, Italy, Slovenia and Romania – and they will work in several locations – the belvederes of the Hotel Central, the Ostrov Island and the Cozia, Turnu and Stanisoara Monasteries’ Ilie Amuzan, the mayor of Calimanesti, stated for Agerpres. The painting camp is named after Vlaicu Ionescu, one of the greatest collectors of paintings and a glass painter in his turn. He was born in 1922 in Calimanesti and left for the United States in 1968. He is known as one of the people that deciphered Nostradamus’s quatrains.
