Congratulation to B.B. Baldrige who placed the winning bid of just $1,500 for June's silent auction piece "In The Canoe" by Nikolai N. Galakhov, Estimate $3,500- $4,000.

For this month's Silent Auction --we have decided to not split up a couple! For this month's auction we have selected not one but TWO great works by the renowned Ukrainian artist, Victor Kirillovich Gaiduk. We feel that the two works are so perfect together that they should be auctioned together.

About the Artist

Here is a review from a Soviet gazette of the work of Victor Kirillovich Gaiduk:

"Only a small minority of Soviet landscape painters put the emphasis on what they felt rather than on what they saw, and even fewer committed themselves to striking a balance between emotion and observation. Among the latter was the Ukrainian Victor Kirillovich Gaiduk, a painter of large, bold, highly subjective landscapes that were painted in the field and that always represented a particular place and time.

And passionate it is, what with his swirling, low-lying horizons, and hearty daubs of paint that become trees, hills, buildings, and forests if viewed from the proper distance. The result, depending on one's point of view, is art that is visionary, ecstatic, ominous, highly romantic - or even a combination of all the above.

Gaiduk's work is not is dull nor like everyone else's. Even someone wishing to criticize his work has to admit that it is totally unique. And why shouldn't it be? It comes from deep within him, reflects his own profoundly Ukrainian personal view of life and the world around him, and was brought into being only after years of dedication and hard work.
