I would also like to invite you to admire the furniture made by a 100% Romanian company, which grasped our desire, namely valorising the art of fire, the ceramic artists, those who so delicately work with glass and porcelain. We also have an exhibition area for painting – the Queen of Arts, which will always be by our side. We welcome your proposals and your ideas, so that we may forge ahead and bring art closer to people. Let me take this occasion to announce a new campaign that we will be launching soon: “What do you hang on your wall?…”,declared Anca Vlad, President of Fildas-Catena Group.

“We have come together this beautiful evening in March, for the opening of a new cultural exhibition venue located in the heart of Bucharest, on a route which marks the completion of five years of activity at Senso Gallery, in a different exhibition space. There have been numerous author’s exhibitions and events in a venue for emerging and established artists, a venue which, in its turn, establishes artists, and we have succeeded. O believe it will have the exemplary success which it desires and deserves, because it has been created with love and commitment, meeting all the requirements of a place which will extend our cultural offer and a team which has evinced openness to all matters related to value and prospection in the field. I am certain that this gallery, which holds us as if we were in a show case, will polarize a vaster and more numerous public” said Doina Păuleanu, PhD.
The exhibition will remain open until April 5th, 2019.
