Gallery North Star, 151 Townshend Road in Grafton, presents a solo exhibition of new work by nationally recognized oil painter Stefan Pastuhov.
The exhibition will run from October 3 through October 31.
An opening reception for the artist will be held on Saturday, October 3 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
Stefan Pastuhov works "en plein air" creating in the outside year round, crafting contemporary traditional works that reflect his love of the outdoors. Painting in an impressionistic style, utilizing loose brush strokes, his paintings depict unspoiled views of varied rural landscapes.
Pastuhov's paintings are about capturing the moment in scenes that are constantly under change. His work brings the viewer to a unique time and place at once familiar, but exhibiting its own individuality. Through the subtle use of color and shading, he brings us to the moment when his painting came to life.
Pastuhov began his formal art training in Paris and received his BFA from Tufts University. His work has been chosen three times by L.L. Bean to grace its catalog covers and has been seen by millions of people worldwide.
Gallery North Star is dedicated to presenting a diverse selection of work by Vermont's and New England's finest artists in a unique setting. The gallery is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
