The Hamazkayin Lucy Tutunjian Gallery and the Hamazkayin Vahe Setian Press organized, on June 12, 2019, an exhibit of the works of talented artists from Artsakh. The exhibit, held at the gallery, also featured carpets and handicrafts from Artsakh Carpet. The event was sponsored and chaired by Dr. Krikoris Bogharian and Dr. Keghouhi Bogharian and BBAC Bank.
Hagop Havatian, director of the gallery and press, spoke. “This event lays the groundwork for our cooperation with Artsakh and I am sure that the first initiative will lead to further steps and closer ties by the day.” He said the cooperation had a “deeply meaningful message” because Artsakh needs, now more than ever, the support of Armenians. The Hamazkayin Office in Artsakh is aware of the importance of support for Artsakh from Armenian communities worldwide and works in all the border villages and regions where “there is the daily fear and awareness of the enemy.”
