Group Exhibition, Somerville Museum
April - May, 2023
Igor Ilchuk participated in the group exhibition "First Look" held at the Somerville Museum in April-May 2023. The artist presented his new painting "Protuberance" to the public. The painting received favorable reviews from the audience and organizers and was displayed prominently in the center of the exhibition.
"...It is a great honor for me to have the opportunity to exhibit at the Somerville Museum. Here, a wide range of artists is represented, and I would like to thank the organizers for giving me the opportunity to showcase my paintings on the eve of another major event - Open Studios. I would also like to express my gratitude for the excellent placement of my artwork in the center of the exhibition.
For this exhibition, I specifically painted the artwork titled 'Protuberance,' as a symbol of a burst of energy breaking free into the vastness of space. There is an analogy to the fact that in February of this year, I moved from twilighted Moscow to work here in Boston."
