Ashot AVAGYAN Exhibition
Picture

It was Friday, July 17, 2015. The time was 6 pm.

A large number of artists, art-lovers and Hamazkayin members and benefactors from the United States, Canada, Europe, and many other countries had gathered at the Hamazkayin “Lucy Tutunjian” Art Gallery to celebrate the launch of the exhibition of artist Ashot AVAGYAN. 

Being melded with the Armenian soil and nature, Avagyan was able to transfer the magnificence of the rocky landscape and nature of Armenia through his canvases.

Dikran Babikian, a very close friend of Avagyan, and a member of Hamazkayin USA spoke of “The Mad artist of Sisian”. He told stories of why Avagyan who has remained true to his native Sisian was called “Mad”. Avagyan had exhibited his works near waterfalls which have stolen away some of his canvases. He had displayed his art above bonfires which have engulfed his creations. He had done so because he believed that art is always in communication with nature. Avagyan also organized rituals to display the strong bond between man and nature.

Babikian continued his tales of Avagyan’s madness shocking the audience with the fact that the artist has already prepared his tomb stating that man doesn’t die, but he transforms and he feels that whatever has happened in his life is indeed the continuation of a previous happening.

Babikian also referred to the noble human character of Ashot Avagyan.

After presenting the artist, Suzy Derderian stated that this event was even more special as it was sponsored by a Hamazkayin couple Mr. & Mrs. Adom & Sella Tenjoukian, and also since it witnessed the presence of many Hamazkayin members from all over the world whose presence accredits the significant role the Hamazkayin Art Gallery plays on the Pan-Armenian stage.

Director of the Art Gallery Mr. Hagop Havatian expressed the pride of the Hamazkayin Art Gallery in hosting an honorable artist such as Avagyan who has with his harmonious words, attitude and ideology proven to be a man of true calling. Havatian referred to the role of Avagyan in our contemporary Armenian and Artsakhian liberation struggles as his art is a reflection of the flight of the Armenian race, of its unmoved will, fighting spirit, and heroic feats. Havatian saw that owning Ashot Avagyan’s canvases can bring all these merits into our homes and lives.

Havatian also thanked the sponsors for their continued support to the mission of Hamazkayin in particular and the Armenian community in General. He also expressed gratitude to all the Hamazkayin members and benefactors whose presence reaffirms their continued support to the community which thrives with more enthusiasm as a result of such love and care showed toward the community.

The “Kousan” Chamber Choir of Hamazkayin conducted by Krikor Alozian surprised the guests by their sudden emergence from among the attendees performing Ganachian’s “Hoynar” and Krikor Suni’s “Ay Yayli”. Lori Yapoujian mesmerized the guests with her performance of the Shvi.


Patrons of the event Mr. & Mrs. Adom and Sella Tenjoukian stressed in their words on the importance of the Lebanese community in the preservation of the Armenian identity especially referring to the activities of the various publishing, news, and political institutions operating at the “Shaghzoyan” Center. They wished success to these institutions in their mission.
