After several years worth of planning, negotiations, more planning, and many more negotiations, I am so happy to announce that in June 2006, the Taganrog Museum
will be opening an exhibit of 35 of my dear husband's artworks
Slava Ilachinski (1925-2002) was born in Taganrog, Russia
but left when still a small child. It was his dying wish to bequeath his hometown (the birthplace of Anton Chekov) at least a few of his works. I am thrilled that his last wish has come to fruition; although the Tagarnrog museum will be getting, and putting on permanent exhibit, many more works than my beloved husband ever dreamed was possible.
You can see a generous sampling of my late husband's art on his website, Slava Ilachinski: Life, Beauty, and Cosmos
. Here is a small sampling of the art that will soon be on exhibit in Taganrog:
