The exhibition "Beginning. 50" by the painter Valdis Bušs is dedicated to commemorating the 50th anniversary of the artist's first solo exhibition.
This year we celebrate an important event in the artist's life - fifty years have passed since the first solo exhibition. In the fall of 1972, Valdis Bušs, a man in his mature years (48), exhibited his paintings for the public for the first time and anxiously awaited the opening of the exhibition at the Jurmala Museum of History and Art. The framing of the paintings has also been preserved and restored as it was then, in 1972.
