The exhibition of thirty images illustrating the artistic achievement of the Armenian communities in the Crimea, Ukraine, Poland, Romania, and Bulgaria over several centuries in sacred and secular architecture, painting, silverwork, stone and wood carving, and other media complements the analytical discourse of the conference panels in introducing viewers directly to the objects themselves and thereby evoking the space of the merchant and artisan centers in that region that served as the matrix for those exquisite expressions of Armenian creativity.
