Tatyana Igumnova Hankinson introduces her exhibit Jerusalem!, which is on display April-May, 2014, in the Atrium Gallery.  This mixed media collection of original works depicts the artist's appreciation of the dusty, sunny, faraway land that is Jerusalem.

Light refreshments will be served.

=================================================

Tatyana Igumnova Hankinson was born in the former Soviet Republic, in what is now the country of Uzbekistan. If you picture the small country North of Afghanistan, South of Kazakhstan and West of China, it is there. She was three years old when she started drawing. Tatyana's parents enrolled her in Art School as soon as she was old enough, at the only Art School in the city where one had to pay for classes. Five dollars per month for classes four times per week was a lot of money for her family. The teachers taught the basics in art and a desire to challenge oneself all the time.

After Tatyana moved to United States in 2002, she finally got the opportunity to do what she always wanted to do: create.  She writes:

I paint what touches me, what I fall in love with. I work in oil, acrylic, pastel and watercolor because I see future paintings in different media depending on what I am going to paint. If you look at my art you will see how much I like what I am doing. I hope you will fall in love with my subjects also! Read more about Meet the Artist: Tatyana Igumnova Hankinson
