‘Bronze Deer’ identifies trends in leather art

By B.TUNGALAG
“Bronze Deer”, a leather artwork exhibition by students of Union of Mongolian Artists prize winner R.Ariunbold, launched at the exhibition hall of the Union of Mongolian Artists on February 27.
The exhibition features work by over 20 artists who work with leather, and who graduated from the School of Fine Arts of the State University of Arts and Culture between 1991 and 2016.
The exhibition consists of 60 leatherworks, including embossed leather, leather handbags and wallets, traditional Mongolian boots, and leather wall decorations.
The exhibition aims to promote Mongolian leatherworking and the artists who create it.
A class in leatherwork first opened at the School of Fine Arts in 1971, and Cultural Merit Workers P.Baldandorj and J.Dorjsuren taught the first classes. In 1988, the leatherwork class closed. R.Ariunbold reopened the class in 1991, and he has been teaching the course ever since.
During the exhibition, a conference on leatherworking will be organized for the artists, and viewers can join in discussions with them.
The participating artists will hold a reception at the School of Fine Arts for R.Ariunbold, School of Fine Arts graduate S.Sainnyam, and designer and guide at Zanabazar Fine Arts Museum Ts.Solongo on March 3, at 3:00 p.m.
