Stand with Ukraine

As conflict strikes in Ukraine, people around the world struggle to make sense of the inhumane and senseless attacks taking place. Ukrainian-American's watch from afar as their people and homeland are under fire. Though the emotions caused by these circumstances may be hard to put into words, expression can always be found through art. Ukrainian art and culture is rich in tradition, from the pysanky egg, to the delicious foods such as varenyky and paska, to the vibrant and soulful Ukrainian folk art and music, and more.

This exhibition features artwork by artists of Ukrainian descent. Exhibiting artists include: Alex Hodowanec, Michael Haritan, Brenda Zelinsky Musta, Helen Bunting-Hart, Debra Tobin, Katya Greco, Tracey Sally, Olena Abakumova, Natalie Turicik and Iryna Kurylas.

The opening reception on June 18th will open with a special performance by the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra’s Clarion Quartet, with Marta Krechkovsky and Jennifer Orchard on violin, Tatjana Mead Chamis on viola and Bronwyn Banerdt on cello.

A variety of Ukrainian foods will be served, including pastries, panna cotta, cheesecake and Polish cake made by Svitlana Honchar.

Proceeds from sales of the featured artworks will be donated to the United Ukrainian American Relief Committee Inc. Reception attendees and visitors to the show also will be able to make direct donations to the organization.
