The Art Association of Oswego is pleased to announce it's next exhibit, Round Trip Stuckism: Ron Throop Works With Russian Painters. The opening reception will be at the Art Association of Oswego on Nov 5 from 6-9 pm. It is free and open to the public.

Ron Throop resides in Oswego and has been painting and writing for over twenty years. He has exhibited extensively throughout New York State, mainly over past eight years, and has self-published eleven books. Throop is in regular contact with a group of painters known as "The Russian Stuckists." Stuckism is an international art movement founded in 1999 to promote figurative painting as opposed to conceptual art.

Throop writes about his experience with stuckism on his website, www.ronthroop.com/round-trip-stuckism and in a blog roundtripstuckism.wordpress.com. This exhibit includes Throop's pieces along with some of his Russian counterparts.

The Art Association of Oswego is located in Fort Ontario Park at the northernmost end of East 4th Street in Oswego. Refreshments will be served at the free reception. Regular gallery hours to view this artwork are from 10 am to 1 pm on Saturdays and 1 to 4 pm on Sundays. This exhibition will run until Dec 4. To find out more about the show or about the Art Association of Oswego go to www.oswegoarts.org or call 315 216-6782.
