The Russian Cultural Center is hosting an exhibit by WAS-H Artist, Rada Bukhman. The exhibit opens with a reception on Friday, February 11, 2022 at 7 pm.
The exhibition, called “Woman’s World” is reflective of Rada’s life-long relationship with music and dancing. Rada is a classical pianist but also took up flamenco dancing when she lived in Canada. Music, dancing, and her love for flowers is a common theme throughout her work.
Rada was born in Omsk, Russia into an artistic family. She received her undergraduate education in Moscow as a classical pianist and continued her studies in classical music and art at the Jerusalem Academy. After moving to Vancouver, Canada, in 1996, Rada experimented with different types of painting media and clay and learned the art of flamenco dancing.
Rada moved to Texas in 2017 with her husband and 13-year-old daughter. While she still works in oil, she has found a new love of watercolor and enjoys combining drawing, lino printing techniques and watercolor to create new and interesting compositions.
Rada’s paintings can be found in galleries throughout Canada. Her expressionist style and sense of color is sought after by collectors. Her paintings can also be found in many private collections throughout Canada, the US, and Europe.
Rada is an active member of the Watercolor Art Society – Houston. She frequently participates in the WAS-H monthly shows and has pieces in our Members’ Sales Gallery.
Rada’s exhibition runs through March 31, 2022, and can be seen at 2337 Bissonnet St., Houston, TX 77005. For more information, call (713) 395-3301. The Russian Cultural Center is open 10 am – 3 pm daily, except Sunday, when they close at 2 pm.
