Keynote Speaker - Andrei Kushnir
Artist Andrei Kushnir has spent a decade exploring the natural and cultural landscapes of the Shenandoah Valley region. Since beginning the project in 2004, he has completed hundreds of Valley scenes and logged thousands of miles traveling and painting from Harpers Ferry, West Virginia, to the town of Buchanan, Virginia. Kushnir’s paintings depict popular landmarks such as Skyline Drive and the Shenandoah River as well as places treasured by local residents but little known to the rest of the world.
Based in Washington, DC, and a plein-air painter for more than 30 years, Andrei Kushnir is a signature member of the National Oil and Acrylic Painters Society, an elected member of the Washington Society of Landscape Painters and the Salmagundi Art Club, New York City, and is an official artist of the US Coast Guard. His paintings are in numerous public and private collections around the world. More than 70 of his paintings were presented in the 2016 Museum of the Shenandoah Valley exhibition Painting the Valley: Works by Andrei Kushnir. The exhibition will travel to James Madison University where it will be on view from May 1 through June 23, 2017, in Duke Hall Gallery.
