Due to the overwhelming response, the Museum and the instructor, Halyna Nazarenko, have agreed to offer a second workshop on Wednesday, July 17, 2019, this one from 1-4 p.m. The workshop is contingent on a minimum enrollment, but the number of seats is limited, so please register as soon as possible.

Adults and students age 12+, with or without experience in painting, are encouraged to join this fun workshop. Decorative petrykivka artwork with its glorious bursts of color are a joy to look at, and now you can learn how to create your own petrykivka masterpiece under the guidance of master artist Halyna Nazarenko.

Petrykivka decorative painting, as described on the UNESCO List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, is an ornamental folk art rich in symbolism. Once strictly practiced as a form of applied art – traditionally, folk artists adorned hope chests, walls, home exteriors, indoor stoves, etc. – today, it has evolved into a painting style for framed artwork.

Ms. Nazarenko, who hails from Petrykivka, Ukraine, the town whence the art form originates, has been drawing since childhood. She studied in an art high school and graduated from the Myrhorod Art College. Her works have been exhibited internationally, and were included in the Ukrainian Museum's 2015 exhibition.

Pre-registration required. No walk-ins!
Fees – $25 per person, plus $10 for materials (total $35).
Workshop fees are non-refundable.
All materials provided. Take your artwork home!
Call the Museum at 212-228-0110 to reserve a spot in this workshop. VISA and Mastercard only.

Exhibition FULL CIRCLE: Ukraine's Struggle for Independence 100 Years Ago, 1917-1921

image

Full Circle: Ukraine’s Struggle for Independence 100 Years Ago, 1917–1921 commemorates the 100th anniversary of one of the most dramatic and fateful periods in Ukrainian history—the struggle for independence from 1917 to 1921—and traces the creation of the modern state of Ukraine on ethnic Ukrainian territories. The exhibition showcases original artifacts generously loaned by institutions and individual collectors from Ukraine, Switzerland, Bulgaria, and the United States. The majority of the items are being exhibited for the first time. Among them are such rare items as a Zaporozhian Infantry Regiment's flag; memorabilia from key figures such as Volodymyr Vynnychenko; state papers from the UN Archives in Geneva documenting Ukraine's effort to join the League of Nations; and state seals from the period: the Ukrainian Central Council and the Great Seal of the Ukrainian National Republic.

Exhibition Alexander Archipenko: Selected works

image

Influenced by artists such as Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque, Alexander Archipenko developed his own avant-garde sculptural style experimenting with convex/concave forms, volume/space transference, and inventing sculpto-painting. By 1920, Archipenko had become the most important sculptor of the era. (see: Jaroslaw Leshko)

Exhibition Faces of the Crimean Tatar Deportation 75 Years Later

image

On the morning of May 18, 1944, the Soviet government initiated a special operation in Crimea: the deportation of Crimean Tatars (Kirimli) to the Urals and Central Asia. Zarema Yaliboylu's exhibition, Faces of the Crimean Tatar Deportation 75 Years Later, reveals this crime perpetrated by the Stalinist regime against the Kirimli through portraits and stories of ordinary people who survived the deportation and managed at last to return to Crimea. The people in these photos are living witnesses to Soviet crimes against humanity.
