“Artists and the Art of Fencing” is a fundraising collaboration between The Yury Gelman Foundation and the emerging artists. The organizers believe fencing and fine art are mirror forms of human excellence and achievement. A fencer is an artist. A fencer masters their weapon the same way as an artist masters their chosen tool for creation. The collaboration aims to draw attention to the paths each take to achieve excellence in their artistic discipline. Dismiss
