Once again this year, the New England Language Center's International Art Gallery will be holding a Russian Christmas Bazaar. The event is free and open to the public. It will feature an exhibit of unique contemporary Russian art and traditional Russian icons, storytelling, Russian cartoons, and historical-cultural information about the crafts.
Among the items available are Matryoshka (nested doll) sets, "Khokhlama" bowls, spoons, candlesticks, hand-painted figurines, icons, carved wooden toys and Russian holiday greeting cards. All are unique pieces which celebrate authentic Russian arts and culture. As they browse through the exhibits, visitors will learn fascinating background details about Russian folk traditions and items on display. There will even be a unique opportunity to color Russian Troika and Grand Father Frost Christmas cards for a small contribution. Proceeds will go to support Russian artists.
