InSight Gallery, 244 W. Main St. Painters Aleksander and Lyuba Titovets.
The Titovets immigrated to the United States from St. Petersburg, Russia twenty years ago. Theirs is an American success story and we are proud to host a show with over 20 new works from these two classically trained artists.
Arriving in the US in 1992, Aleksander had $25 in his pocket, new ideas, a different perspecitve on life and art, and some canvases he and Lyuba had brought with them. They worked odd jobs and continued to paint when the time allowed. With hard work and determination they have lived the American Dream. They did not receive any government assistance but instead relied solely on the fruits of their labor. As they persevered, they saved money and their ability to focus more on their art grew.
Today, they are both full time painters with numerous accolades and awards. Their work has been shown throughout the US and has become part of collections throughout the world. Aleksander was commissioned to paint then first lady Laura Bush for the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC. Aleksander once asked me: "In what country could this happen? That an immigrant of 10 years would be painting the president's wife? Only here, Meredith. Only in the United States."
Their story is compelling and uplifting and we are honored to share the current fruits of their labor with you.
