Vadim Bora Gallery Opens in Haywood Park Hotel in Asheville, NC

November marks the official opening of Vadim Bora Gallery, showcasing the works of international master sculptor and painter Vadim Bora. The gallery located in the Haywood Park Hotel, overlooking Battery Park Avenue, in Asheville, NC, features classical and contemporary sculpture, oil paintings, and works on paper, highlighting Bora's figurative, portrait, landscape, and conceptual art.

Bora came to the United States almost nine years ago, settling in Asheville, inspired by the historical mountainous town that reminded him of his own city in the Caucasus of Russia.

A graduate of the College of Art in Vladikavkaz, (Asheville's Sister City), Bora continued his studies at the renowned St. Petersburg Academy of Art and later became a member of the Professional Artists Union of Russia.

Unlimited in his ability to create in any medium, from the smallest humorous pen-and-ink caricature to dramatic monumental sculpture in bronze or stone - Bora is a true phenomenon. His figurative sculpture, painting, and portraiture, exude powerful composition, form, and meaning.

Bora has been commissioned for three public sculptures in Asheville - Cat Walk on the Asheville Urban Trail, The Wings of Freedom memorial sculpture at the Asheville VA Medical Center, and the Crucifix at St. Mary's Episcopal Parish on the corner of Macon Avenue and Charlotte Streets.

Bora's monumental sculptures are located in St. Louis, MO, Asheville, Atlanta, GA, as well as in museums in Russia, and in private collections around the world.

Bora, an acclaimed instructor at the Vladikavkaz School of Art for Gifted Children, now teaches students, children, and adults from his studio overlooking Battery Park Avenue in downtown Asheville. Bora has illustrated books and magazines and has designed and created art for interiors and landscape projects throughout the southeastern United States and Russia.

Bora's sculptures and paintings are maintained in private collections and museums around the world, and most recently in the collections of the Consulate General of France in Atlanta, Senator Bob Dole, and Secretary of Veterans Affairs, Anthony Principi.

In addition to showcasing Bora's work, Vadim Bora Gallery will introduce original talent to the region, inlcuding the works of artists from Bora's native Caucases Mountains of Southern Russia.
