Russian Cultural Center art opening reception: Romantic Posters of the Brezhnev Era by Valentina Kisseleva
In a continuation of its current exhibit Posters of the Gorbachev Era: The Sunset of Soviet Power, the Russian Cultural Center "Our Texas" CaviArt Gallery presents Romantic Posters of the Brezhnev Era, a unique collection of hand-painted versions of Soviet posters by local Houston artist Valentina Kisseleva, a contemporary artist and painter whose craft stands at the intersection of realism and cubism.
Commissioned in the former USSR, these State/House-published posters were originally created by Kisseleva in the 1970s for various radio and television stations, murals and even the USSR itself. Some of the individual works were published or reprinted into thousands of copies for state distribution. Kisseleva's works subtly express mood and imagery, distinguishing themselves by their integrity and clear composition and reflect the emotionalism and energy with which she perceives the world around her.
All works will be available for sale. Wine will be served at the opening reception.
On view through Aug. 31.
