On 25 May 2017 Asters jointly with the U.S.-Ukraine Business Council held a reception within the ArtAsters project presenting exhibition of Boris Yeghiazaryan, a well-known Kyiv-based painter of Armenian origin.
At the opening ceremony Asters' Senior Partner Armen Khachaturyan pointed out: "Asters and USUBC are honored to showcase Boris Yeghiazaryan's art. The naive charm, sincerity, spirituality of his works seasoned with the Armenian art flavor and unequivocal professionalism may leave no one uninvolved. The artist's creativity connects time, generations, and cultures. The colors of his artworks are luminescent and images are distinct and simple. The complex though are emotions produced by seemingly simple images. And this combination is magical. Emotions bring us back to our childhood, reawakening almost forgotten feelings of the world's harmony and amiability."
Morgan Williams, USUBC's President, indicated that "ArtAsters project has a very noble mission of promoting Ukrainian art and artists among business community. Boris Yeghiazaryan is the artist, whose eyes are always focused on the beauty of people, their faith and its presence in the Universe, as well as the personality, for whom there is no compromise with the pain of another human being".
The event was traditionally held in Asters' office with near a hundred guests attending, including business managers, diplomats, governmental officers and public figures.
