Denise Wyllie solo exhibition in Karelia, Russia
Denise Wyllie’s paintings and prints are celebrated in a solo exhibition called ‘Karelia Dreaming’, at Karelia State University. Curated by Sabina Nedbailik / Сабина Недбайлик, the exhibition runs to January 2020. Wyllie’s frequent visits to Karelia and her long collaboration as Art Contact Russia/UK artists and creatives have resulted in a unique portfolio of prints. Wyllie initiated contact with a group of young Karelian artists in the early ’90s during Glasnost, being the first non-Russian artist to exhibit there since the Russian Revolution.
