Oleg Ulitskiy at First Friday April 2, Art on the Boulevard, Vancouver,WA

(reprinted with permission) A message from Kevin Weaver:


I hope you are enjoying the start of Spring! First Friday is right around the corner and this month we have another great show “Oleg Ulitskiy, New Works”. The show opens on First Friday April 2nd and goes through May 1st. The show will feature a stunning new collection of oil paintings by Ridgefield artist Oleg Ulitskiy. As a dedicated and talented plein air artist, Oleg spends countless hours painting on location battling fast changing light and the elements to capture the beauty of the Northwest’s landscape from rural farm scenes in SW Washington, to the Columbia River Gorge. Oleg’s dedication to painting directly from nature is evident in both
his plein air and his studio work, which results in beautifully composed paintings, both rich in color and atmosphere.

The First Friday evening reception on April 2nd from 5 to 9 pm is open to the public at no charge and includes an opportunity to meet Oleg and enjoy complimentary light refreshments and live music.

To preview part of the show (the remainder of the show images will be added to the website by Thursday, April 1st) please visit our website and click on "upcoming events" then click on "visit the exhibition".

Have a great day and we hope to see you soon!

Best regards,
