Artist Reception: Sunday, November 14th from 1 – 5 PM

Natalya Aikens and Ekaterina Piskareva, both artists of Russian heritage, are exhibiting their paintings, textile and mixed media collages, and drawings together.
Natalya’s art is an exploration of her heritage. St. Petersburg, her birth city, inspires her with its elegance, grace and grittiness, and Russian decorative traditions infuse her work with their fanciful spirit. Her current work focuses on her fascination with sheer, translucent effects and creative recycling. Adding intense hand stitching and free hand machine embroidery further enhances her work.
