With two locations and over 5,000 square feet, the gallery represents more than 40 artists, including painters such as Russian master Nikolai Blokhin, along with a large number of newly acquired works from the great plein air painter Andre Shirokov. World renowned Spanish painter Roman Frances and newly acquired Italian realist Licio Passon are both colorful and exciting. Both depict scenes from their homelands, Spain and Venice, respectively.
