Once again RCC Our Texas presents the artworks by Irene Sheytman and Saida Fagala.

Both artists originally are from Baku, Azerbaijan, and currently live in Houston.

Irene Sheytman  has been painting since her childhood, and always been interested in her urban surroundings. Eventually the city landscape became the main subject of her art.  She works with different media; her favorite are silk and water color.  Irene Sheytman had participated in many solo and group exhibitions in Moscow, Russia, and in Houston.

Irene has been very inspired by old European cities. This exhibit shows her watercolors created in Italy.

Saida Fagala had been born in a family of the talented artists. Saida’s path in the fine arts has led her to the unique expression of mood and color through numerous forms of crafts (ceramic, pottery) and painting in watercolor and ink.

Saida Fagala has actively exhibited her works at various galleries and shows: Anya Tish Gallery, Rouge Art by Karine, Foelber Pottery Gallery, Houston Center for Contemporary Crafts, Winter Street Studios show, Watson Gallery Shows and others. The exhibit presents her ceramics portraits.

All artworks by Irene Sheytman and  Saida Fagala are available for sale.

Exhibit “The Spirit of Christmas”

The Spirit of ChristmasWHEN: December 9, 2016 – January 31, 2017

WHERE: RCC Our Texas, CaviArt Gallery (2337 Bissonnet Houston, TX

ADMISSION: Free
All artworks are available for sale.

We present the artworks by two Russian woman artists.

The unique rag-dolls

Self-trained artist Natalia Borisova, from Russian Far East, started making these dolls 4 years ago. She got an inspiration from the Tilda, a world known doll invented by Norwegian artist Tone Finnanger. At the same time, Russia has its own tradition of making rag-dolls; they often served as talismans. The dolls by Natalia wear colorful clothes, and each has its own funny name. They resemble good fairies. Such doll would be a perfect Christmas gift and can even start a new collection.

The unique collection of hand-painted versions of postcards dedicated to the Christmas and New Year

Commissioned in the former USSR, these state/house-published postcards were originally created by artist Valentina Kisseleva in the 1970’s and published or reprinted into thousands of copies for state-wide distribution. Nevertheless, each one of them is artwork in itself. They are magic and colorful, and with elements of fairy tales.
