Coffee with the Artists ~ Igor and Marina

Save the Date: 
Thursday, November 12th 6-8:30pm

Please join me at The Art Center-Highland Park this Thursday at 6pm, as I interview the husband and wife collaborative painters, Igor Kozlovsky and Marina Sharapova. During the evening, I plan to explore the history, inspirations, challenges and achievements of these modern masters... All while surrounded by a variety of their paintings—currently on exhibit in the main gallery of The Art Center-Highland Park. The evening will conclude with questions from the audience and enough time for a second cup of coffee. You will also have an opportunity to take a closer look at the beautiful and elaborate paintings created Igor and Marina.

A little insight:  Igor and Marina reinterpret the imagery of the Renaissance masters while including surrealist elements. The imagery emerges as iconic in a mixture rendered figures contrasted by flat shape. The artists infuse new meaning into familiar imagery, inviting the viewer to experience a newly created existence.
