How did it all begin? At first Ak Bars Bank promoted fine arts among its clients and employees by hanging paintings and drawings on its walls thus implementing the bank’s idea of ‘Art at a Workplace’. The collection kept growing as years went by. Some works had to be kept in a museum.
In December 2005 ОАО Ak Bars Bank registered a subsidiary OOO Ak Bars Gallery. Since then the gallery has been located in an excellent building in the historical part of Kazan at: 44/10-8 Bauman.
At present there are more than 300 splendid artistic works in the collection including Russian paintings of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, soviet and contemporary paintings and works of decorative and applied art such as clocks, enamels, sculptures of bronze, porcelain and glass. All these artistic works were made at different times and different places and using different techniques, but one thing in common is that they are all of high artistic value and made skillfully.
Ak Bars Gallery like any other gallery is a commercial organization. However its business is not limited to making collections and selling works. Our mission is to promote fine arts, to develop a taste in arts, to search for new ideas, to attract broad public attention to arts either forgotten or little known.
