The Angel of Russia speaks at Gala Opening

International artist Yuri Gorbache, enchanted the crowd that gathered to see his Museum Collection at the Richard Stravitz Fine Art Gallery. With doctorates in both Philosophy and Psychology, the artist gave an insightful talk on the rich symbolism inherent in his brilliant oil and gold paintings. Enhancing his thick Russian accent with some lighthearted pantomime, he told of his grandmother's encouragement of his earliest work. Distinguished guests enjoyed his enthusiastic embrace of life as much as his iconic masterpieces.
