Kursk Art Exhibit

“My Little Village” – A P Osminkin

Mount Union College in Alliance Ohio is holding an exhibit and auction of Russian landscapes through March 4th. The school has been organizing events with Kursk State University in the city of Kursk in Western Russia since 1997. Since 2000, they have held three exhibitions of paintings by artists at Kursk State University. In 2006, they auctioned the exhibit to raise money for future collaboration between the schools, and they are holding another auction this year. Images of all 35 paintings chosen for the exhibition are online. They are landscapes of the Russian Realist school, and provide a small but satisfying glimpse of how the Russian landscape tradition persists in the 21st century.
