From October 24 – 27, 2016, Member of the European Parliament, Eduard Kukan (EPP/SK) hosted an exhibition “Orbis Printus” of artist Natasa Floreanova in the European Parliament in Strasbourg, France.
“It was my great honour to open the exhibition of Slovak-Australian artist Natasa Floreanova in the European Parliament’s seat in Strasbourg today. Natasa’s exhibition concentrated on portrays of Slovak countryside, which, in the time when Slovakia holds the Presidency of the EU Council, are a sweet reminder of how beautiful our nature is. While politics are at the forefront of Slovakia’s efforts in these months, we should also use this opportunity to showcase our artists and our the multiple talents of Slovaks all across the world,” Kukan concluded.
The exhibition opening was attended by almost 30 Members of the European Parliament and members of the diplomatic corps in Strasbourg. Charles Tannock, Member of the European Parliament (ECR/UK) held a short speech at the opening reception, as did Alojz Peterle, Member of the European Parliament (EPP/SL) who played a Slovak folk tune on his harmonica.
