Crow's Nest Gallery 305 N Main St, Toledo, OR 97391
Veta Bakhtina's paintings and illustrations focus on themes of home, nostalgia, and manifestations of infinity in nature. Veta grew up in St. Petersburg, Russia, at the end of the Communist era and credits her exposure to uncharted nature, the rural Russian countryside, and tradition of heritage for much of her inspiration and working style. Veta is based on the Oregon Coast where she works as a muralist, fine artist, and author. Her magical realism folk paintings as well as her other publications such as The Creatures' Secrets Animal Divination Deck can be seen Wed-Sunday at Crow's Nest Gallery 305 N Main St, Toledo, OR 97391.
