Born in St. Petersburg, Russia, Nadia Klionsky began her traditional art training at the Intermediate Art School, an affiliate of the world-renowned St. Petersburg Academy of  Fine Arts. This training instilled in her an appreciation for traditional landscape painting. After immigrating to the United States at the age of thirteen, she continued to pursue this genre while studying at The Cooper Union in New York, the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, and the Philadelphia College of Art.

Nadia’s exhibition record includes gallery and museum venues in the United States and abroad. One of her first exhibitions in New York was at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, where she was featured in a group exhibition of “Outstanding Young Artists of NYC”. She was selected by a panel of distinguished international art critics, curators, scholars, and historians as one of a few artists representing the United States among 35 other countries for the 1999 Biennale Internationale Del’Arte Contemporanea in Florence, Italy. Nadia’s work has appeared in publications, such as Architectural Digest Magazine, and New American Paintings, where her work was featured on the cover. In 2008, Nadia participated in the Biennial Exhibition of Contemporary American Realism at the Fort Wayne Museum of Art in Indiana.

Nadia was represented by Hammer Galleries in New York for many years and later was represented by Elizabeth Moss Galleries in Falmouth, Maine. In 2014, she had a retrospective exhibition at Elizabeth Moss Galleries.

Nadia has received numerous honors and awards, including the  Katlan Seascape Award (2016); the Alden Bryan Memorial Medal for Traditional Landscape (2012, 2018), presented by the Allied Artists of America; and the Giovanni Martino Family Award for Realistic Landscape (2018), awarded by the Audubon Artists Organization. She is also a recipient of the Florence & Irwin Zlowe Memorial Award for the Best Work on Canvas (2010), presented by the National Association of Women Artists at the National Arts Club in New York City in 2010.

In 2014, Nadia was elected to become a member of the Connecticut Academy of Fine Arts. She was also elected to the National Association of Women Artists, the Salmagundi Club, the Audubon Artists Organization, Oil Painters of America and the Allied Artists of America, where she currently serves on the board.
