Holiday exhibit "Joyful Line" by foremost painter of Sumi-e in Europe and America Jan Zaremba with artist reception on December 4

Dear friends and art lovers!

We are pleased to invite you to artist reception , for Master of Sumi-e Jan Zaremba "Joyful Life" exhibit, on Sunday, December 4th, at 3-7 PM.

Bostonian artist, Jan Zaremba is considered to be the foremost painter of Sumi-e ( pantings on sensitive absorbent rice paper, made with a delicate brush loaded with pure ink) in Europe and America. Brush, ink, and paper of such responsiveness are unknown in Western art.

Artist has exhibited in Germany, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Finland and all over USA. The greatest painter of the most aesthetic nation on earth, Dr. Hisashi Ohta, the Living National Tresure of Japan, confers his students to Zaremba. In 1982 Jan Zaremba becomes instructor of Sumi-e and teaches at the Japanese Cultural Center in Los Angeles for 18 years. In 1994 artist was also invited by Chinese painters to join the Chinese Calligraphers and Painters Association.

Jan Zaremba says: " I paint because what appears to us as the world wants to be known. And I am convinced that even in its exquisite horror world is profoundly beautiful. My paintings are exuberant songs of a complete world- symbols of forgotten paradise".

Exhibition is on view at FROM RUSSIA WITH ART Gallery in Cambridge ( near Porter Sq. T station) on November 30- December 24.

Also on sale: Unique Russian paintings, jewelry, souvenirs and Christmas ornaments.


  1. I took his class and there's nothing else like it. A world of elegance and craftsmanship really opened up to me. I find the logic in this art form very refreshing

  2. Beautiful collection of brush paintings, His landscapes and deceptively simple paintings of birds and other organic life shows skill unequaled in the west.
    Worth a trip into the city to see.
