"Chords of Colors": Paintings by Olga Gernovski
October 2 - October 26
Renowned local Visual Artist Olga Gernovski will be presenting a retrospective of her paintings in the Virginia A. Carten Gallery at Abbot Public Library, from Monday, October 2nd, through Thursday, October 26th. There will be over thirty oil, acrylic and watercolor paintings on view, created by Olga over the last few years. You will see landscapes, seascapes of the beautiful North Shore, exciting flower compositions and portraits of your contemporaries.
Olga Gernovski was born in the Ukraine, where her art education began. In 1994, Olga and her family moved to Massachusetts, where she completed her education at the Art Institute of Boston. After that, she studied panting with such masters as Kim English, Dennis Perrin, and Peggi Kroll. Over time, Olga developed a unique personal style with bold brush strokes and deliberate color application.
Olga has been a member of the Marblehead Arts Association, since 1997, and the Rockport Art Association, since 2005. She has had multiple solo shows throughout Massachusetts, and her works were honored by numerous awards for painting and drawing at art competitions. For many years, she has been donating her paintings to charitable causes, such as the WGBH TV auction and the FRAXA Research Foundation. Olga's paintings are held in private collections in many countries, including the United States, United Kingdom, Israel, Switzerland, Holland, Russia, and the Ukraine.
Many of Olga's landscapes are inspired by the music of autumn colors. These warm yellow and orange notes flow together into chords on her canvas. In contrast to them, one hears sounds of blue colors of her seascapes. This melody is punctuated by the colorful accents of her flower paintings.
All are invited to a public reception for the exhibit, on Saturday, October 14th, from 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm. Please come and enjoy the show, meet the artist, and consider purchasing the piece that you fall in love with, so that you can bring a thing of harmony, positive mood and inspiration into your home or office, or share it with someone special.
