Some of Russia’s best artists have focused their creative energy mastering printmaking, particularly etching – and the results are breathtaking, but hard to find in this country.  From Russia With Art Gallery in Cambridge, MA is helping to change that, with an exhibition of etchings and other prints by some of Russia’s leading artists. The show will feature work by Stanislav Nikireev, Alexander Vetrov, Vladimir Vorobyov, and Irina Makoveeva, well-known artists in the Russian and international art world. People’s Artist of Russia Stanislav Nikireev (1932-2007,) a Member of Russian Academy of Art, was one of the most remarkable Masters of modern Russian Fine Arts. Experts consider his incredibly detailed works as a unique phenomenon in current landscape art and etching technique, to be compared only with the legacy of old Masters, such as Albrecht Durer, Rembrandt van Rijn and especially Pieter Brueghel the Elder.

Gallery is also featuring rarely seen original works on paper (pastels, mixed media, drawings) by an important Italian-American modernist August Mosca (1909-2002,) created by the artist in 1940s-1970s .

In addition, rarely seen in the United States etchings, aquatints and dry points by “Honored Artists of Russia” Alexander Vetrov, Vladimir Vorobyov and Irina Makoveeva will also be presented as part of these exhibitions. Vetrov, Vorobyov and  Makoveeva have had exhibitions in America and Europe. Ms. Makoveeva has even participated in exhibitions and workshops throughout Asia for animal dry points in 2015-2017.    

The exhibitions are curated by Olesya and Jerry Koenig of Cambridge, MA. Olesya and Jerry are Russian art experts, collectors and owners of From Russia With Art Gallery ( in Cambridge. For the past 8 years the gallery has maintained an internet presence and features several moving exhibitions a year, selling and building knowledge of contemporary Russian-American art and Russian-American cultural relations.  Works on display at AD20/21 & Boston Print Fair will include etchings, which they just brought back from a recent trip to Russia, and original works on paper by A. Mosca (Booth# 2S.)

With spring in Cambridge, we welcome the vibrant sights and sounds of the 9th Annual Cambridge Arts Open Studios, from May 13-14, 12Noon -5 30pm. Annually, Open Studios celebrates the creative work of visual and performing artists in the City and invites you to experience and purchase work in studios and Common Venues throughout Cambridge! Learn more at

The exhibition is curated by J. and O. Koenig of Cambridge, MA. Olesya and Jerry are Russian art experts, collectors and owners of From Russia With Art gallery ( in Cambridge.

Gallery is also proud to feature original works on paper (pastels, mixed media, drawings) by an important American modernist August Mosca (1909-2002,) created by the artist in 1940s-1970s. The presentation is part of an ongoing project to re-introduce August Mosca to the general fine art audience of today as an artist of much merit, nearly forgotten and whose work had been admired by other artists in his own day. As such, it is an effort at custodianship, as much as possible, in hopes that this portion of the lifework that is, these works on paper, can find a suitable, long-term institutional conservancy. It is our hope, ideally to place these works as an archive for the appreciation of August Mosca.
