Elder Gallery in Charlotte, NC, Offers Works by Contemporary Russian Artists

Elder Gallery in Charlotte, NC's Historic SouthEnd District will present the exhibit, The Russians Return, featuring paintings by a group of contemporary Russian painters, on view from Sept. 3 - 28, 2010.

The exhibition will feature the work of numerous artists that reflects everyday life in their native country. The result is a magnificent collection of paintings incorporating the traditional painting style of the Russian impressionists as well as some of a more contemporary style.

"Our past exhibitions have focused on Russian and Soviet paintings which were created from 1940 through the 1980s," says Larry Elder. "Our 2010 exhibition will feature recent paintings by a number of artists who embody the best of classical Russian realism and impressionism."

A number of the featured artists can trace their lineage back to some of Russia's most notable teachers and painters and consider it their responsibility to preserve the classical tradition of Russian painting.

Included in the exhibition are landscape paintings of beautiful snow covered vistas as well as spring and summer landscapes. Human figures and animals add interest to several of the paintings. Elder Gallery's collection glistens with sunlight and color for which the great Russian painters are known.
