Salsk art museum of a name of the national artist V.K. Nechitaylo
Date of birth of the museum is on October 13, 1977 when the decision of the Secretariat of the Union of artists of RSFSR to the city of Salsk transferred a collection of the Soviet fine arts. It was made by seventy five works of painting, twenty three - schedules and forty six - sculptures. Transfer of works of the fine arts happened in connection with opening in the city of art gallery (it is renamed into the museum by the resolution of Administration of the Rostov region of 07.08.2002 No. 370).
In formation of the first collection the active support and personal participation was rendered by the National artist of RSFSR V.K. Nechitaylo, the native of Salsk. In delivery of the first collection, and then Vasily Aleksandrovich Shekhovtsov appointed the public director of art gallery participated in creation of the first exposition. Exhibits of that first collection are a basis of a constant exposition of the museum. The structure of the first collection was quite uniform, integral. All works at different times (50th, 60th, 70th) were purchased at all-Union and All-Russian exhibitions. In these works, anyway, the typicalness of shape of the whole era in the history of the Soviet and Russian fine arts was reflected. The fact that the first collection, involuntarily allowed to define also specialization in further sobiratelsky activity of the museum – a reference point on the modern fine arts became logical and natural.
