Art Lectures

 We have always been strong believers in the value of sharing our knowledge of art schools and media techniques as well as important historical and biographical information on the artists.
NB Gallery’s art experts have been leading the Russian Art History Group with the International Women’s Club. Once a month we schedule a lecture, visit a museum or a gallery to teach and enhance an appreciation for Russian Art.

The fact that Russian Art is so poorly represented in the world’s museums provides us with an opportunity to not only educate, but to also increase an awareness and appreciation for the history of Russian Art. We strongly believe that educating and showing our clients the best examples of Russian Art will give them the ability to discern between good and mediocre art which will enhance their enjoyment of art.

Art Sessions for Children

Since 2011 NB Gallery started Art Sessions for Children 4-8y.o. with interactive talks about Russian art. During these sessions children studying the artworks from the gallery's collection learn everyday life and national traditions of different ethnic groups living in Russia, sing and dance, make crafts and have tea with cookies and Russian pies.
