UNC Asheville in Asheville, NC, Features Works by Vasily Polevoy
UNC Asheville is presenting, Caprice, an exhibition of works by Russian artist Vasily Polevoy, on view in the Blowers Gallery at the Ramsey Library through Feb. 28, 2012.
Polevoy’s works have been shown throughout the former Soviet Union, many European nations, Israel and the US, but his paintings from the pre-Glasnost era were once “underground,” since they did not meet the ideological approval of Soviet authorities. Polevoy’s work combines the fantastic with the realistic, and sometimes involves humor and caricature. He is a graduate of the Higher University of Art and Science in Leningrad (now St. Petersburg).
Polevoy has also created several mosaics for churches in Hendersonville, NC, and Greenville, SC, where he now lives.
