Art Alliance Events

“Music, Art and Fashion Salon by International Art Alliance”

October 5th at the National Opera Center
(330 Seventh Avenue, New York, NY 10001), in the Marc A. Scorca Hall.

The opening of the Autumn season “Music, Art and Fashion Salon by International Art Alliance” will take place.  This evening talented creative people, united together, will present to the public unforgettable moments of beauty and inspiration. Art is designed to enrich and beautify our lives, give new emotions, develop tastes and excite the imagination. Art Alliance strives to unite representatives of various areas of art, presenting their work in one exposition, concert or presentation.

This approach gives a powerful emotional impulse, broadens the range of perception, helps to understand and experience how diverse the skills, talents and imagination of a creative person are. How infinite are its possibilities and how the wide range and embodiment of ideas.

Starting the season 2018-2019, we decided to focus on music. This evening, the Art Alliance will present two talented singers to the New York public – Evgenia Pirshina and Tanya Dybal. They will perform arias, duets and romances of French and Russian composers. They will be accompanied by Carla Ferreira, the leading pianist of the theaters SODRE and Solis (Montevideo). In their program, musicians will touch upon the eternal theme of love, which inspires all people of art throughout the centuries.

Moving away from the standards and making bold and unexpected decisions are the features of creative people. These are the features of the Art Alliance. We are sure that an elegant collection of evening dresses from designer Olga Banertseva and jeweler/designer Kira Koktysh will be a pleasant surprise for guests of the evening.

Inspired by the idea of the Salon, the designers, in just a couple of months, realized their joint “music” collection, which will be unveiled for the first time in the defile on October 5. Mastery and fantasy allowed Kira and Olga to create a “Rhapsody of Color” made of fabric, stones, textures, colors and, of course, their own brilliant ideas.

The collection created by them confirms the opinion that in their tandem, the designers are followers of such famous American masters of evening dresses as Badgley Mischka, J. Mendel, and Dennis Basso. The concept of the collection: A cascade of colors and emotions from elegant evening dresses, shaded with a soft glitter of pearls and a saturated color of semiprecious stones. Each element of the collection, carefully executed by the hand of the master, not only supplements, but also emphasizes the individuality of its owner.
International Art Alliance has the same admiration for all areas of art, but we admit that our origin lies with painters and their art. The Art Alliance project involves truly outstanding, professional and talented painters and graphic artists who show new facets of their skills during each exhibition.

This time we are pleased to present the works of 2 regular participants of our Salons: Katya Leonovich and Elena Lezhen and two new ones for the New York’s public: David Sharashidze and Olga Sushkov-Hyunyadi. The collection of art exhibited in the concert hall, in the atmosphere of music, will open the guests to the amazing depths of the beauty, touch the hidden strings of the soul, and play with emotions. Works that differ in style and technique that is combined with juicy and bright colors. Their bold combinations and musical virtuosity in the transmission of feelings.

The evening will begin at 6:45 with a buffet table in the company of musicians, designers, and artists. In the concert hall the public will see an exhibition of works by  Yelena Lezhen, Katya Leonovich, David Sharashidze, Olga Sushkova-Hunyadi.

Participants of “Music, Art and Fashion Salon by International Art Alliance”:

Nemirovich-Danchenko Moscow Musical Theater  (2006-2015), invited soloist of the Opera Panama, this season is involved in the performance of the Chicago Opera Theater.

Olga Banartsev: “For many years I studied the art of creating unique and stylish dresses that fit perfectly on any figure. I find my inspiration in the image of a modern woman, worthy of the most refined and beautiful evening gowns. Creating elegant, seductive, and refined outfits for special occasions and celebrations. I strive to ensure that in the dress I created, a woman feels compelling and beautiful. Feeling good about herself and admiration of others. ”

Kira Koktysh is focusing on beauty of natural semiprecious stones. It enhances our aspiration for living in harmony with surrounding world, subtly emphasizing our inner being.

The jewelry inspired by symbols and folk stories from around the globe including Kira’s native Urals Mountain region of Russia. Her style is a fusion of traditional organic earth elements and modern materials.


Elena Lezhen. Over the past few years Elena has been tirelessly and successfully experimenting with materials and paints. Finding new opportunities in realizing her own creative ideas. Work of the artist on black paper, has become the subject of collecting for many of her fans. Without ceasing to paint in this manner, Elena creates new and interesting works on unusual surfaces with her paint brush. At her latest personal exhibition in Barcelona, Lezhen presented to the public, the pictures painted on the surface of the door and several works created on old glass screens. She also created an incredible composition on a roll of a Ruberoid, that was 30 meters long, which hung from the second-floor window of the gallery. Elena Lezhen regularly participates in numerous international exhibitions. Her works can be found in private collections around the world, including the US, Germany, Israel, Spain, Netherlands, France, Russia, and Ukraine.

Katya Leonovich: “I want to develop a different type of beauty that allows someone to not only embody the style and concepts in life, but also to carry a powerful message to the world.”

The concept of her works, made with acrylic on canvas, violates the expectations of the public and leads away from traditional perception. By combining painting and fashion, Leonovich creates a new “mobile art” or “art in motion,” in which she seeks full freedom and expression.

Her ideas for her acrylic on canvas creations are to break society’s expectations and divert from traditional expressions. Leonovich’s new concept for combining the works of art and fashion in the form of moving art, which Leonovich refers to as complete freedom and expression.

David Sharashidze: “Color is my element. Work on composition is the main theme for reflections. Only when the image ripens to the smallest detail, only then do I gladly transfer it to the canvas and fill it with color.

Olga Sushkova. In the world of art, there are artists whose creative works seem to come from dreams. From the mysterious world of visions and romantic desires. Such are the works of the artist Olga Sushkova. Olga is a relentless and inquisitive researcher of the subconscious, and her connections with the world of sensual reality.
