Sheila Isham: 50 Years of Creating On October 13, the Russian Museum opens a retrospective on the life and work of acclaimed American artist, Sheila Isham, in the Engineering Castle.

While absorbing the influences of these many cultures and integrating them into her own work, Sheila nevertheless maintains her identity as an American artist >>> A catalogue for the exhibition has been published.
