Stoimen Stoilov
June 7� 29, 2014

OPENING RECEPTION SATURDAY, JUNE 7 from 5:30 - 7:30 p.m.


In Bulgaria, the native country of Stoimen Stoilov, when winter seems finally over and about to greet the spring, people offer each other a martenitsa, small amulets made of red and white yarn that one must tie to a tree for luck when they see the first bird of spring. And throughout the summer, one can see bird nests across the country with these red and white threads woven into them. In this spirit of charm and renewal, the William Meredith Foundation is pleased to offer this special exhibition to welcome summer and all the joys it brings.

Provenance Center presents "Stoimen Revisited", which is locally preceded by an exhibit of the artist's work at the Lyman Allyn Museum nearly a decade ago, along with being a prelude to his major retrospective scheduled for the Slater Museum next June, 2015.

For this upcoming show, in addition to his massive murals, Stoimen presents etchings from ECHOES, the art folio book illustrating the poetry of William Meredith.


In the New London Day review of the Lyman Allyn Show, NEW WORKS FROM EUROPE COMBINE A MASTER'S TOUCH WITH AN ARRESTING VISION, art critic Rick Koster wrote that the works, "display a paradoxically futuristic interpretation of the mysticism and mythology appropriate to both eastern and western Europe. Fasten your seatbelt, then, and join the ghosts of other travelers who've apparently been inside his brain a while: Hieronymous Bosch, Albrecht D�rer, Pan and his eclectic and recurring entourage of Greco-Roman deities and mythmakers, Leonardo DaVinci and maybe the painter/patricide Richard Dadd."
