This Friday, May 6th, St. Mark’s on the Campus Episcopal Church and Student Center is holding a First Friday art exhibit featuring works by Andrei Sorokin. The exhibit is Friday, May 6th from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m, in the social hall of the church, located at 1309 R Street. Visitors are invited to view the paintings and enjoy light refreshments.

Andrei Sorokin graduated from the Art Institute in Russia. Initially, he worked as a portraitist and icon painter. Since leaving Russia in 1993, Sorokin has lived and worked in the United States, primarily in the Midwest. Over 300 of his oil paintings have been sold to collections all over the USA and internationally – specifically Russia, Italy and Germany.

Through his work as an artist for a memorial company, Sorokin added stone etching as another artistic skill. He has worked in three dimensions as well – both restoring and creating sculptures. Sorokin continues to enjoy learning and experiencing a variety of fine arts techniques as he develops his own style of expression.

Sorokin’s works can also be seen at Metro Gallery in downtown Lincoln.

First Friday Artwalks are held on the first Friday of every month at galleries and business (and now, with St. Mark’s, Churches!) in downtown Lincoln. To keep up to date on future Art Walk exhibits and other happenings at St. Marks, like their Facebook page found here.
