Opening of an exhibition by a Partium photographer in a carnival atmosphere

The “Matei Stegerean” Gallery of the EFA Exhibition Centre in the Medieval Castle of Oradea (Building E) hosted the opening of the solo exhibition “Venice Carnival” by János Csíki, a photographer from Paria, which was packed to capacity on Wednesday, 21 February 2024 at 6pm. The audience was welcomed by István Tóth AFIAP, ESFIAP photographer, Vice President of the Hungarian Photographic Society of the Carpathian Basin (KMFT) and President of the International Association “Euro Foto Art” (AIEFA) and curator of the exhibition, who thanked the exhibiting photographer for the exhibition and presented the context in which the exhibition was put together, which was organised by AIEFA in partnership with Summit Agro Romania (official partner). In his speech, the speaker underlined that “the realisation of this exhibition has shown that a lot can be achieved in partnership if there is the will. After the author of the exhibition had taken photos in Venice and sent them to me, they were processed by the photographer Nobert Hero from Subotica in the South of the country on his return home and then printed under excellent technical conditions by the sponsor Duran’s in Oradea. It was worth it, because the author of the exhibition has not only become an active member of the KMFT, but also one of its most loyal supporters, actively contributing to KMFT and AIEFA projects.” The author of the exhibition then described the context in which he took the photographs on display and thanked the organisers for the opportunity to exhibit and the audience for attending the event. The opening ceremony was also addressed by the photographer’s sister, Mrs Margit Bihari, who congratulated her brother on his ambition to travel to many picturesque places in Europe and bring back unforgettable images for the photography-loving public. Finally, after presenting the monthly exhibition flyer produced with the support of the official partner, István Tóth AFIAP, ESFIAP photographer, presented the patronage certificate 2024/006 to the author of the exhibition. The musical moments of the opening were provided by the representative of the cultural group “Duo Sola Fide” from Oradea, the violinist Sándor József Thurzó, who performed several pieces from the Italian repertoire: “Santa Lucia”, “Nessun Dorma” by G. Puccini, “O mio bambbino caro” by G. Puccini and “Serenade” by E. Toselli. The exhibited photos will also be displayed on the screens of Oradea’s public transport vehicles. The exhibition will be open to the public until 20 March 2024, daily from 08:00 to 20:00, free of charge!
