Katriel Srebnik's artwork has earned thirty-eight national awards, including First Place for Signature Members and three Awards of Excellence from the Oil Painters of America; the President's Award from the American Impressionist Society; First Place from the American Tonalist Society; Best of Show from the Academic Artist Association and Texas Art Museum; First Place from the National Society of Artists and Hilton Head Art League. Katriel has participated in over seventy national juried shows, eight museum exhibitions including the International Guild of Realism's Master Works Museum Tour. He has shown in galleries throughout the US, in London and in France, as well as in his own galleries in Santa Fe and Charleston.
Interpreting charming figures, dancers, interiors and street scenes with light, atmosphere and expressive brushwork to evoke a mood and ambience, Srebnik creates his unique style of contemporary impressionism that ranges from painterly naturalism to tonalism, orchestrated with subtle color tonalities and strong graphic compositions.
Srebnik has conducted classes and workshops at his own art school and art workshops at over thirty art schools, colleges and other venues. He also conducts his "Artist Viewpoint" museum and gallery tours in the US and France.
As an anatomy instructor, former principal dancer and ballet instructor, musician, and having lived in France, Srebnik brings a unique understanding to his figures, dancers, and European street scenes, and imbues them with a visual harmony and musicality.
