Ukrainian born painter Luba Stolper debuted works at Art encounter
By Debbie Hall Las Vegas Arts and Exhibits Examiner
Luba Stolper debuted her private collection of still life paintings during a reception at the Art encounter gallery.
Art encounter is representing the artist on an exclusive basis.
“Luba (Stolper’s) realism is amazing, some of the very best I have ever seen,” said Brett Maly, president of Art encounter and resident art expert on the History Channel’s “Pawn Stars” in a press release “We are showing more than 40 of her works in our new gallery location.”
Stolper’s demonstrates her life as both a dreamer and determined artist. Raised in a small Ukraine community of about 3,000 farmers, she knew she always wanted to be an artist. At the age of 4, she lost her father and then her mother at the age of 11. While she worked on a farm after the death of her parents, she would paint during her free time. Stopler was accepted to art school in Russia and her family was able to move to Israel. In 1993, her family immigrated to San Francisco and she was able to study at Berkley’s School of Professional Fabric Design becoming a professional fabric designer. Settling in Santa Rosa, Calif., north of San Franscico, she studied under artist Charles Becker and has continued to create her art.
“It was a wonderful evening and a real treat for the eyes,” said Scott Ferguson, executive director of Art encounter. “Art encounter is excited about representing an artist of Luba’s talent and skill. Our clients were thrilled when they saw the quality of her works first hand.”
The reception was open to the public and held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on March 26 at the Art encounter gallery. A wonderful time was had by all.
