Paintings from Russia

When: June 23-July 22 2011

Ilya Repin was about the extent of my education in Russian art. And even Repin, painter of such gory classics as "Ivan the Terrible" and "Barge Haulers on the Volga," doesn't get the press he deserves in a genre that's often pigeonholed into the dark realms of Orthodox icons or Soviet propaganda. To help fight that perception, the traditional wing of the Hayden Hays Gallery (1 Lake Circle at The Broadmoor, haydenhaysgallery.com) will open Paintings From Russia today, featuring works by numerous other Russians who capture pleasant landscapes, colorful peasant scenes and bright vignettes of city life. Drop by the opening reception from 4:30 to 8:30 tonight, or see the show anytime through July 24. — Edie Adelstein
