The gallery was founded in 1995 by Tanya Pesheva and Vihra Pesheva. It has been functioning as a contemporary fine and applied art gallery under the name of ‘Astry’ since 2001.
Solo exhibitions of Bulgarian and foreign artists are organized twice a month.
Along with the big names in the contemporary art, an exceptional amount of attention and space is dedicated to young artists.
The ’30 x 30 Format’ exhibition, which is traditionally held at the end of each calendar year, is emblematic for the gallery.
The gallery collection includes examples of contemporary painting, graphics, watercolour, sculpture, ceramics and jewellery.
