Support Ya.Oyunchimeg in her fight against cancer


A fundraising exhibition for Ya.Oyunchimeg, who was diagnosed with cancer last year, is on view at Marshall Art Gallery, located in King Tower-116 in Marshall Town, until February 10.
Ya.Oyunchimeg graduated from the Institute of Arts, Sculpture and Architecture at the Ilya Repin St.Petersburg State Academic Institute of Fine Arts in 1977. She has taught at the School of Fine Arts at the Mongolian State University of Arts and Culture for 32 years.
A State Merit Artist and professor,Ya.Oyunchimegis one of the most powerful representatives and defining figures of the Mongolian art community. The number of rave reviews for her work still increases every year. Her works have been exhibited in galleries in Italy, India, Germany, the U.S., and Japan, to name a few.
“I get my inspiration from nature.When I take a walk in the countryside, I just get the urge to paint these beautiful colors and inimitable moments,” she smiled. The artist also noted that she has a love for feminine beauty.
In this exhibition, the artist used watercolor and oil to paint landscapes, portraits, and still-life paintings. The artist skillfully uses many techniques to depict realism. Her landscapes capture the momentum and air of the countryside, enveloping the viewer in the wide open spaces she paints.
The artist is widely known for her portraits of women, with backgrounds representing the subject’s unique characteristics and experiences. Most of the time, her portraits are extremely realistic, and are of women she knows personally. The portraits beam with personality and character. For this exhibition, she painted her sister.
One of her most famous artworks, and the artist’s favorite, is a portrait of Kh.Oyun, one of the most popular Mongolian ballerinas of the 20th century. In the painting Kh.Oyunis wearing casual clothes,and her biggest roles as a ballerina are painted behind her. “I positioned the hands very delicately. Her hands are very beautiful, as if they were made for dancing,” the artist said about the painting in an interview last year.
Stop by Marshal Art Gallery to buy one of her artworks and donate to funding her cancer treatment. Supporters are welcome to donate artwork for sale in the exhibition, as have four artists and art collectors.
