In Brief ...
Early in April the "Tadzio" gallery hosted the exhibition of Inna Lesovaya. The Gallery halls were overcrowded with people but many of them saw the artist's works for the first time. She is more known in Kiev as a literary woman mainly owing to her several stories published in the almanac "Yegupets". But those who have read these stories abut "just a life" remember them and look forward to meeting the author again: Lesovaya's works are often published abroad - in America, Germany, Israel. Her only big personal art exhibition was organized in1991 in Moscow by the editorial board of the magazine "Nashe Nasledije". Nonetheless, Inna is known in Kiev as a sculptor who makes puppets. During many years it has been possible to meet puppets made after her models in many houses all over Ukraine
