Andrei Kushnir's

Shenandoah Valley's Interstates

Paintings Now Available


 

As a companion to his plein air collection illustrated in Oh, Shenandoah, Andrei has created a unique series of paintings of the interstate routes running through the historic Shenandoah Valley landscape: I-81, I-66 and I-64.  The works thus become important symbolic vestiges of our time, providing images that are also evocative and beautiful.


Below are images of all new paintings in the forthcoming book, issued by George F. Thompson Publishing, Staunton, VA.  The book, issued this Spring, contains essays by the artist and historian Warren Hofstra.  It will be distributed by the University of Virginia Press, and will be commercially available from the publisher and all booksellers.



A checklist, with information about each painting, follows the images below:
