    The collected works of the Russian Oil Painting program at the Bernard Betel Centre

    The Russian Oil Painting program at the Bernard Betel Centre is a cornerstone for many older Russian-speaking artists in the Bathurst-Steeles community. These artists attend the program each week despite numerous family obligations, work schedules, and some physical barriers that come along with aging. When asked why she paints, one of the artists responded, “Painting is the most natural thing for me.” This collection of landscape and still-life paintings captures both a deep shared tradition and highly personal experiences. Russian art institutions have long praised a realist approach. These traditional roots form a foundation for many of the featured artists, and simultaneously creates a jumping-point for more gestural and expressive brushstrokes. The artists’ experiences of living in Russia and/or other Eastern European nations as well as moving to Canada provides a complex and particular groundwork for representing land and space.
