Very excited to have been accepted into the 5th Annual Russian Night in Taos Gala fundraiser to benefit the Taos Art Museum in beautiful Taos, New Mexico.
When: Show is being hung now (late July)! so go see it, August 29th @ 6pm is the Black tie and Boots Auction and Reception which will include an elegant dinner, live auction, silent auction and dancing
Tickets to the Gala are $175/person
I am thrilled to be included with such major artists of the day including Nikolai Blokhin, Walt Gonske, Alyce Frank, Jerry Jordan, Zhiwei Tu and Bill Acheff who have all committed major pieces to the auction. My piece is entitled Hollyhock Delight
Will post an image soon.
The Taos Art Museum is housed in the home of Nicolai Fechin (Fechin House), who with his family moved to Taos in 1927. Born in Russia, Fechin is one of the most important portrait painters of the 20th Century. His paintings of Native Americans and of the New Mexico desert landscape are considered among his best works.
