The City of Gaithersburg hosts a multi media exhibit of the Alizarin Artists at the City Hall Gallery September 25 through November 22, 2009.  The Gallery is located on the second floor of City Hall, 31 S. Summit Avenue in Olde Towne, Gaithersburg. 

Alizarin Artists, comprised of Russian-born female painters Luba Sterlikova and Olga Sheymov, create luminous atmospheric works using a colorful palette to convey mood, emotion and feeling. Both Russian and American influences can be detected in their works as the vivid colors of Eastern European tradition blend with modern Western shapes and structures. Their works have been exhibited at major national, international and local expos and galleries, and have been included in many publications.

Luba Sterlikova has established an international presence for her distinctive images, with works exhibited and collected in the United States, Europe and Asia.  Sterlikova's paintings invite the viewer through a rare blend of vitality and delicacy, sensitivity and intensity. "I explore shape and color to evoke in each composition an expression that is both provocative and poignant," said Sterlikova.  "I try to create compositions characterized as intense and exotic, but balanced between the bold and the graceful. I think Keshav Malik, the Indian art critic, captured the essence of my works when he called them ‘A juicy genre, as rich as Keats, the poet's fruity poems.'"

Olga Sheymov paints in allegorical surrealism, infusing her artistic vision with philosophical and moral implications. Faithful to both her artistic and engineering backgrounds and with a degree in graphic design from Georgia Tech, Sheymov serves both in the technological and traditional art worlds.  Through the media of oils, watercolor and airbrush, she expresses her vision and her deeply felt affinity for allegory, music and literature by which the human spirit has always eluded shackles.

Please note that all images are copyrighted by the artists.  For viewing hours please call 301-258-6310.  For all other information please contact Gallery Director Natalya Parris at 301-258-6394 or 301-258-6350.
