Painting a Bright Future for the Arts
A Partnership with Anna Razumovskaya & ArtHouse Studios & Co Publishing

The arts are a complex tapestry of disciplines and inspires and enriches our communities. For over seven years, Music and Play has been excited to welcome students to learn and grow through the performing arts and is now excited to be able to expose its clients and residents of Calgary to the art of internationally acclaimed impressionist, Anna Razumovskaya.

The relationship with Ms. Razumovskaya began in 2008, when while running Alberta Ballet, Music and Play co-owner, Darryl Lindenbach built a relationship with Shirley Louie (ArtHouse Studios & Co Publishing) and through her, an amazing modern artist. Anna’s work was featured in the ballet’s marketing soon after and her original, Romeo & Juliet inspired work, ‘Love Story’ was then translated into a larger than life mural and displayed prominently on a building on McLeod Trail for over a year.

With her classic figurative forms, acclaimed Russian artist Anna Razumovskaya magically captures the lyrical romanticism of renaissance portraiture, while creating art that is completely modern and original. Anna is inspired by the graceful elegance of the female form, at turns, classically alluring, demure and provocative. Ms. Razumovskaya’s work embraces the arts and her captivating images often capture the worlds of dance and music in new-found beauty.

The arts can be a challenging industry in which to work and for many, to thrive.  At Music and Play, we are so grateful to Shirley Louie, ArtHouse Studios & Co Publishing and Ms. Razumovskaya for this wonderful new partnership that allows us to not only more fully embrace and represent the arts at our studios but also to help our studio ensure that arts education remains accessible for all.

Through this new partnership, any sales of Ms. Razumovskaya’s work by Music and Play, will result in the contribution of 10% of the purchase price towards the new ‘Arts 4 All’ Music and Play bursary program to help ensure that arts education continues to be affordable and accessible to everyone in our community.

Four of Anna’s limited edition, hand-embellished Giclee’s now grace the walls of the Music and Play lobby and studios and we are happy to introduce you to more of Anna’s work and, if you wish, to help you secure one of Ms. Razumovskaya’s amazing works of your very own to bring the arts to life in your home or office.
