12-01-2019 12:00:00 12-01-2019 12:00:00 America/New_York Artists and the Art of Fencing The mirror forms of human excellence and achievement, fencing and fine art will be presented at the inaugural fundraiser NEW YORK, NY, January 4 – The inaugural fundraiser ‘Artists and the Art of Fencing: an Exhibit of Fine Art and Celebration of Excellence in Fencing’ will take place on January 12, 2019. The event is a collaboration between artists and fencers to highlight the paths each take to achieve excellence in their artistic discipline through guest interaction with the artists and athletes. Yury Gelman, the founder of the Yury Gelman Foundation, the five-time US Olympic fencing team coach, explains the reasoning for such a unique collaboration “I believe fencing and fine art are mirror forms of human excellence and achievement. A fencer is an artist who masters their weapon the same way as an artist masters their chosen tool for creation.” The 2019 art show will feature works of five artists. Hali Nelson, an emerging artist from New York, until recently fenced for the Harvard team, placing second in the women’s Ivy League in 2016. Together with another female artist from St. Petersburg, Russia, Elizaveta Kudryavtseva, Ms. Nelson focuses on exploring the psychological connection between art and viewer. Mrs. Kudryavtseva donated a series of posters ‘Artists and the Art of Fencing’, available for sale at the fundraiser. Leonid Shoshensky, a previous exhibition participant at the United Nations will share some of his latest works in abstract art. The painting section will also include concept art from Sergey Kir, which was just recently shown to public at the Times Square billboards. The event will be covered by Ana Ruff, a photographer regarded as one of the most promising young photographers at the Guergui Pinkhassov’s (Magnum Photos) workshop. Guests will have a chance to enjoy some of her recent works selected to the New York Times fellowship application. All displayed art pieces will be available for sale with proceeds benefiting the Yury Gelman Foundation and its programs. The fundraiser is about providing an equal opportunity for kids of various backgrounds and abilities to participate in fencing. U.S. Olympic Fencing medalists James Williams and Keeth Smart (both Silver, Beijing 2008), Dagmara Wozniak and Monica Aksamit (both Bronze, Rio 2016) among other internationally recognized fencers attending the event, will speak about the role of fencing in their lives. Mr. Jeff Bukantz, a former fencer and the president of Maccabi USA, will support the Yury Gelman Foundation by keeping the event moving. The world’s leading manufacturers of fencing equipment and sports apparel are supporting the initiatives of Yury Gelman by partnering for this event and presenting special gifts to the best performing fencing athletes for their achievements during 2018 season. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=347715 Manhattan Fencing Manhattan Fencing
