The Byrne Gallery celebrates its 23nd anniversary this year with a celebration and exhibition of the vivid oil and enamel paintings of internationally-acclaimed artist Yuri Gorbachev. The Byrne Gallery welcomes Yuri Gorbachev for his 15th consecutive exhibition in Middleburg, Virginia. The Gallery will feature new works from his 2019 museum world-tour and the exhibition will continue through December 31st.
Inspired by the brilliant jeweled colors of Byzantine art, the works of Faberge, and Russia’s Icon heritage, artist Yuri Gorbachev creates colorful, richly-textured canvases in oil and gold leaf. His personally joyful and meditative artistic world combines memories of his Russian boyhood and the deep tradition of Russian Orthodox Icon painting. His art blends a radiant kaleidoscope of folk celebrations, street fairs, circuses, fairy-tales, animals, snowy winter landscapes, and images of the Romanov dynasty. Yuri brings his newest paintings from Russia to Middleburg as part of his “world-tour” of museum shows!
The Byrne Gallery is located at 7 West Washington Street in Middleburg, Virginia. The exhibit is open to the public and everyone is invited to attend. Gallery hours are Monday and Tuesday by appointment only. Wednesday through Saturday 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday noon to 5 p.m. Contact the Byrne Gallery for more information at (540) 687-6986.
