Svetlana Gorbacheva: Fall 2017 Artist-In-Residence – Classes Available!

October 27, 2017 - November 5, 2017

Accomplished painter, sculptor, weaver and quilter from Binghamton’s sister city of Borovichi,
Russia, Svetlana Gorbacheva, will be our honored artist-in-residence from October 26 to November 7.
During her time at Roberson, Gorbacheva will offer programs in painting, clay sculpture and
other media for both children and adults. Her programs will tie-in with Roberson’s newest
exhibit NatureTrek by using animal specimens as models and by focusing on subject matter
pertinent to the habitats highlighted in the exhibit.
Sign up for one of Svetlana’s art classes before they fill up!
Gorbacheva will also schedule time to work on her own artistic projects, which she will share

with museum visitors. She will also visit local artists and studios whose work parallels her own.

Gorbacheva showcased her considerable talent during a previous visit to Roberson 15 years
ago. Her stay as an artist-in-residence is still remembered by Roberson’s staff as inspiring and
highly successful.
