At the initiative of President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov, an international conference and exhibition "Glorification of a happy spring in the visual arts" dedicated to International Women's Day began in the Turkmen capital.

The thematic forum was organized in the halls of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry, where an exposition of paintings, works of jewelers, and decorative and applied arts was unfolded.

Flowers, of course, have become peculiar symbols of the exhibition - constant companions of spring, embodied in the works of artists, traditional carpet ornaments and embroidery patterns, elegant forms of jewelry, decoration of copper and bronze vessels, decorative painting on ceramics and porcelain. Floral compositions gave a special atmosphere to the event.

The velayats of the country presented pottery, art and carpet products. Also of great interest among numerous visitors were designs of national clothes and accessories.
