'Russian Proverbs' is a politically inspired series of 14 mixed media works on canvas cleverly satirizing the ethics and morality of our current White House.
Accomplished mixed media artist and abstract painter Ruth Sharton is exhibiting her new series Russian Proverbs at Art Synergy / Art Palm Beach 2019, in the Palm Beach Convention Center, January 16, 2019 through January 20, 2019.

Ruth States: "While watching the Helsinki Summit this past July and observing the performance by, and dynamic between, our current president and the Russian president, the phrase 'one good turn deserves another' occurred to me as an apt description of the event. Curious about the origin of that phrase, and wondering if by chance it might be Russian (it's not), my research yielded an unexpected and serendipitous treasure trove of Russian proverbs, dozens of which were uncannily relevant to my sentiments about our president and administration. So began the Russian Proverbs series.
