In this 40+ piece body of work, Gleiter paints scenes from every season in a variety of locations throughout Eurasia, highlighting nature’s wondrous beauty. Gleiter describes the pieces as “travel impressions and were done in various corners of the world. In the exhibit are canvases from places as diverse as Croatia, Italy, the Republic of Georgia and the many different areas in Russia, the Urals, Siberia, the polar regions, and the mountains of the Caucasus.” Influenced by Russian impressionists and trained at the Repin Academy in Saint Petersburg, Gleiter employs the techniques of the masters; the brushstrokes work harmoniously to create his fully realized paintings. We see this skill in works like “At Sunrise in the Mountains”, “Heavy Snow, Karelia”, and “Summer Evening on the Black Sea”. Each work depicts a different scene in a detailed and carefully crafted manner. While the landscapes on view in this exhibition represent the bulk of the exhibition, there will also be still life and portrait works on view.
