With featured works from Kurgan painters Vyacheslav Pichugin and German Travnikov, the “Painted Russia” exhibit opens September 16, 2011 at the Trout Museum of Art in Appleton, WI. The exhibition is part of a larger collection on display of post-impressionist painters, who utilize a style very similar to that Pichugin employs in his work. The exhibit will be on display until February 24, 2012.
A number of paintings are on loan from local collectors and friends of the artists who have connected throughout the years on various programs with the Fox Cities-Kurgan Sister Cities organization. A small collection of Pichugin’s work was recently on display in Washington, DC, where an exhibition was just completed.
Pichugin recorded a greeting for the opening of the exhibit, with a message of friendship for Kurgan. Watch the video here:
