Date of construction:
The Stepanakert Gallery was founded on February 10, 1982, and Robert Arseni Avetisov, a native of Stepanakert, was appointed director.
The gallery did not operate in 1988-2001 due to the Artsakh Liberation War. After a long break, on July 12, 2001, the Stepanakert Gallery reopened and was located in the first-floor hall of Stepanakert Municipality. Elena Georgi Dadayan has been appointed director of the gallery, who is still the director of it.
On October 12, 2013, the newly built hall of the Stepanakert Gallery was opened, during which the paintings of Artsakh artists, as well as the works of famous sculptor Sargis Baghdasaryan, were presented. The gallery has its own fund, which is replenished with new paintings and sculptures every year, thanks to the donations of the authors of the exhibitions in the gallery. The gallery organizes exhibitions of fine arts and decorative arts, photo exhibitions, master classes, lectures, intellectual games (quiz, brain-ring), concerts, and other events. Exhibitions of works by professional and semiprofessional artists are organized.
The gallery cooperates with members of the Artists’ Union of Artsakh and Armenia, as well as with foreign artists.
Admission to the gallery is free.
