Historical reference about the Museum of Arts in Atyrau
It appeared in April 1992. The main exposition was made up of works provided by the Art Exhibitions Directorate. It included a little more than 1000 exhibits and during all the time that the museum works, it continues to be supplemented by works of contemporaries.
At the end of the 90s, the city hall allocated a more spacious building to the Museum of Arts, but it required repair. At that moment the company Kazakhoil came to the aid and in 1999 the museum moved to the renovated premises, which is still today.
The Art Museum in Atyrau has halls:
- Shaymerden Sariyev;
- gift collection;
- applied art;
- graphic art;
- Kazakh Khanate;
They contain works of applied art, graphics, and paintings by artists from all over Kazakhstan: A. Kasteev, V. Antoshchenko-Olenev, S. Mambeev, A. Sydykhanov, A. Zhantasov, and many other talented authors. Among contemporaries, it is worth noting paintings by R. Slekenov and E. Zhumabaeva - winners of the international festival Shabyt.
In memory of the outstanding portraitist.
The museum received its present name thanks to a petition from employees who applied to the Ministry of Culture for the name of their countryman Shaymerden Sariyev.
Why him? For many years, Shaimerden Tlemisovich was rejected by his coworkers for his freedom-loving character, his protest to the official and his unwillingness to be a conformist. But in spite of everything he continued to work and paint in Kazakh, thanks to which, the outstanding portraitist left behind a rich heritage, which is a support for local novice brush masters.
In addition, since the early 2000s, the Sariev Museum has had an art studio. Both adults and children study at the studio. The works of the students are also shown to visitors.
The Sariev Museum pays great attention to unlocking the potential of young artists. This is why it is often held here:
- traveling exhibitions;
