UAG & 1st Friday

The President of Upstate Artists Guild is honored to showcase artwork from Tula, Russia.

Rebecca Schoonmaker said “I really enjoy looking at Sergey’s prints of the cats. They are nice and large and people like to see the big work on the walls and they are priced really reasonably.”

At this month’s 1st Friday event, the UAG gallery displayed artwork by Sergey Sachtov submitted by the Albany-Tula Alliance. The gallery attracted nearly 500 people who came not only to enjoy the themed “Call of the Wild” show but buy the work.

Sachtov lives in Tula, Russia so Albany-Tula Alliance board member Greg Johnson helped describe his work and our sister-city organization to many curious attendees.

The Albany-Tula Alliance is a grassroots, not-for-profit volunteer organization composed of citizens of Albany and the surrounding Capital Region of New York State. Partnering with citizens of Tula, Russia, we have come together to provide mutual support and inspiration and to carry on a long-term program dedicated to the growth and well-being of both communities.

As an ATA board member myself, I put together this short video of the evening’s fanfare.
