Exibition at LEE Gallery Boise.Idaho March 2013

I take part in this exibition with still lifes and landscapes.
This is my first exibition in USA.

Exhibition and masterclass of graphic landscape artists from St. Petersburg October 2012 in the Molbert gallery

Usually i paint in oil colors and paint in pastels quite seldom.
On this exibition i showed about 10 pastels which i made in Marocco.
It was very interesting travelling with a lot of impressions.
I was glad that i had an opportunity to show my pastels,because usually galleries ask for exibitions only oil paintings.
During this exibition i made a masterclass,drawing still life by pastel.

Exibition "Autumn 2012" at the St. Petersburg Union of Artists

This is the annual exhibition,where i usually take part as a member of Artist Union with one of my recent paintings .This year i showed my composition "Spring".

Exhibition "On both sides of the Simplon pass" with Jodok Gallery in Brig,Switzerland from 26-30 September.

This exhibition will be held with the support of my friends living on opposite sides of a single pass. Thanks to them I had the opportunity to paint in Italian Alps and in Alps in Swiss. So I had the idea to combine in one exhibition paintings made ​​in places, located just 50 kilometers one from another. But each of these places is different both in nature and architecture.
I'm very grateful to my friend Adam Wyden for his help in organising this show.
Paintings which were presented at this exhibition you can see in the folders Alps, and Brig.
