RE:ARTISTE International Art Organization was founded in 2012 and led by Natalie Burlutskaya as an art events and networking platform for emerging and established artists to be seen by curators, buyers, and art enthusiasts as a peacemaking mission by connecting people of diverse cultures, origins, and legacies.  Art conveys both historical and social facts, lifestyle, inspiration, and feelings; RE:ARTISTE curates exhibitions and events to encourage historic and cultural discourse to embrace diversity, cultural differences, and various art styles.



Gallery MC. Embracing the synesthesia of creativity in the widest sense of the word, Gallery MC believes in cross-pollination, mutations, and integration of discourses across the artistic fields. This is a multicultural interdisciplinary art gallery committed to the research, production, presentation, and interpretation of contemporary art. The gallery supports emerging artists and explores ideas at the junction of arts, performance, and architecture. 

Lyric Seasons. A boutique-size production company, Lyric Seasons creates a platform for musicians to experiment with various music genres such as opera, operetta and music theater, art songs, sacred music, contemporary, jazz, and crossover.
