Lanning Gallery
“Rolling Hills and Rounded Earth:
The Art of Slava TCH and Bob Smith”
April 7th, 2017 (5:00 pm – 8:00 pm)
Lanning Gallery in Sedona, Arizona opens the new exhibition “Rolling Hills and Rounded Earth: The Art of Slava TCH and Bob Smith” and welcomes both artists to the gallery for an opening night 1st Friday reception. Neo-primitivism may best define the rich encaustic landscapes by Russian artist Slava TCH. The places he depicts seem at once both mythical and sacramental. TCH, who grew up as Viatcheslav Tchstiline in Russia, received a Master of Fine Arts degree from the Ukrainian Academy of Arts. The experience achieved by Bob Smith continues to be evident in each stunning vessel he creates. Whether saggar-fired vessels with their silky surfaces or raku with bright surfaces that capture the red rock tones of our area, Bob Smith excels in these complicated, and always unpredictable, techniques. For more information please visit the Lanning Gallery
