James Yarosh Associates Fine Art Gallery Opens the Holiday Season with Fine Art Events – Including a Visit from Vachagan Narazyan
HOLMDEL VILLAGE, N.J.—James Yarosh Associates Fine Art Gallery celebrates the holiday season with the new Holiday Show exhibit, which includes a collection of Russian Realism paintings and a rare visit from Ukrainian artist Vachagan Narazyan.
James Yarosh Associates Gallery is known by collectors and the interior design trade as a "painter's gallery," exhibiting fine-art paintings created for art's sake, and its critically acclaimed collections of Russian Realism art, which is considered the most important Realism movement of the 20th century. The Holiday Show highlights a collection of works by three revered Soviet-era artists: Alexander Danilichev, Nikolai Fedosov and Nikolai Sergeyev. Yarosh describes the featured paintings as works that "find the beauty and poetry in the life around us." The collection showcases landscape and pastoral scenes by these learned artists, painting in their free time, that capture their loving depictions of their subjects with masterful simplicity.
The Holiday Show is open to the public with extended weekend hours on Saturday and Sunday, December 5 and 6, from noon to 4 p.m. both days. The show continues through January 3, 2016 on Saturdays from noon to 4 p.m. and on weekdays and evenings by appointment.
On Saturday and Sunday, December 12 and 13, James Yarosh hosts internationally collected artist Vachagan Narazyan for his first visit from the Ukraine to the gallery in a decade. In this not-to-be-missed collector event, Narazyan, who has been represented by Yarosh for almost two decades, will be painting at the gallery from noon to 4 p.m. and is available for conversations through a translator.
"Watching the artist develop a painting will give insight into his craft," says Yarosh. "Narazyan is unique in that he has honed his skill through academic training in the arts, but that ability is equally matched with his imagination, from which he creates a world of paintings that are very much his own vision."
Narazyan's epic and intimate paintings are among the most important works to surface and still develop from the repression of the former Soviet Union. With a style blending Old World images with futuristic visions, the artist creates a world of mystery and enchantment for the viewer to explore. His style is known as "romantic fantasy" and is part of the historical Non-Conformist Art Movement. Narazyan's work is represented in museum and private collections around the world.
The gallery's annual month-long Holiday Show can also be previewed on December 4 from 6:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. with a reception sponsored by Janice Troiano, Broker Associate for Gloria Nilson & Co. Real Estate/Christie's International Real Estate Affiliate in Holmdel. The public is cordially invited to attend this night of fine art and friends.

About The Russian Realism Collections
Although Socialist Realism suppressed the influences of contemporary artistic movements within itself, Socialist Realism fostered its own unique diversity. Russian artists, like the masters before them, expressed themselves not by evolving to meet artistic movements of their time, but by becoming the absolute best within their specific painting genres.Russian Realism painting, based in part on the studied principles of French Impressionism, developed and honed plein-air academic painting ideals under a closed society for generations; it is now becoming discovered and lauded by the Western world. Achieving excellence through complete artistic integrity and ultimate devotion to their "Immortal Beloved"—the art of painting—artists of Moscow's School of Russian Realism exhibit distinct perception of color and outstanding color relationships that trademark their pedigree of traditional Russian painting. The works in this collection represent the paintings the artists created from their hearts, in their free time. At these moments, they painted for themselves, to find the truth and beauty in their subjects; in turn, they found their greatness. These are painter's paintings. Russian Realism art has created a lasting legacy and a universal connection beyond its origins and is considered to be one of the most important realism movements of the 20th century.
