A

bend Gallery, a leading fine art gallery in Denver Colorado, is honored to bring you an exceptional new exhibition of Russian, Ukrainian and American oil paintings in the Impressionist and Realist manner. What started out as a group of artists who shared a strong common vision for art has now become a successful National traveling exhibition showing at Museums and Fine Art Galleries thru America. Exhibiting alongside one another are fine oil paintings divided into four sections: Historical and Contemporary Russian and Ukrainian works, with Contemporary American works. By combining these selections in one exhibition we aim to connect two centuries and two continents via commitment to traditions of the Realist and Impressionist painting. This diverse and talented group of painters, from opposite corners of the world, have had classical, traditional training from such renowned schools as St. Petersberg Academy of Arts, (Repin Institute), Penza Art Institute, the Kharkov Art Institute, Laguna College of Art and Design, the Academy of Art in San Francisco and the Los Angeles Academy of Art to name a few. They have exhibited in top exhibitions worldwide from St. Petersberg, to Paris, to Los Angeles and have impressive résumés as well as strong bodies of work. The artists share a profound love of painting, and believe in the successful combination of objective realist traditional work with everyday or personal subjects and application which ranges from tighter refined style, to expressive and even “painterly” strokes. The artists are well-versed in multiple subjects including landscape, still life and figure. “We share an admiration of both Realist and Impressionist work and many of us will actually combine these styles in order to create strong, appealing works of art”, Vanessa Rothe, Curator, West Coast Editor Fine Art Connoisseur Magazine and Participating Artist. “The Russian works are rooted in a “Realist” style and its important to note the Russians were some of the only ones to keep the realist tradition alive when the world was going modern” explains Akhmed, Russian Art Curator from St. Petersburg. 1


“We are extremely excited for the opportunity to show an incredible selection and wide breadth of work from the US and Russia/Ukriane, especially the historical wroks from titans of impressionism such as Nikolai Fechin and William Wendt. Vanessa and Akhmed have assembled a world-class exhibition in Impression and we are delighted to host and take part in bringin this show to the public. “– David Ethridge and Conner Serr. Co Curators Abend Gallery. With the exception of a rare Nikoli Fechin, Alexander Pushnin, and William Wendt that will be on view for discussion and comparison, all the works will be available for sale. It is the aim of this exhibition to bring awareness of various styles of realism and impressionism, to evoke critical thinking through comparison, and to celebrate the beautiful works of art, conveying interesting historical aspects of fine art. A fine art lecture and slide show on the history of Russian Impressionism will be given from 5:30-6:30pm opening night by Rothe and Salakhly just prior to opening of the exhibition. A Duo live Demo with contrasting styles of quick sketch will be given by Olga Krimon and Vanessa Rothe the following morning on Saturday the 12th from 10am -12 noon followed by open discussions of Russian, Ukrainian and American styles. All artists and works are pre-curated into the collection by Vanessa Rothe, Fine Artist, Curator, Author and West Coast Editor of Fine Art Connoisseur Magazine and Akhmed Salakhly Russian Art Historian and Repin Collection curator, to form an imported, traveling fine art collection combining works from across the globe. The works in this particular exhibit have also been selected/curated by David Ethridge, director for Gallery 1261 and co-curator of Abend Gallery, and Connor Serr, manager of Gallery 1261 and co-curator of Abend Gallery. With its highly sought after works, including rare Soviet pieces by Borodin, Rebane, and Gladchenko, enthralling educational lectures, and informative live demos we are excited to present this collection in Denver in March 2016, which is sure to make an Impression.
