Sixty Years an Artist: A Retrospective Exhibition of Works by Zenowij Onyshkewych
September 27, 2015 – January 17, 2016
A comprehensive exhibition featuring the work of Zenowij Onyshkewych (b. 1929), a prolific Ukrainian American artist, whose oeuvre includes a wide range of mediums spanning sixty years of creative expression. This retrospective exhibition spanning his artistic career primarily showcases his landscapes, but also includes portraits and caricatures executed in oils, watercolors, and ink or pencil. The exhibition is comprised of more than 70 paintings and drawings. The artist studied with Reginald Marsh, one of the best known chroniclers of 1930s and 40s New York, and American Impressionist, Robert Philipp.

Staging the Ukrainian Avant-Garde of the 1910s and 1920s
February 15 – October 4, 2015 (Extended)
The first of its kind outside Ukraine to feature important contributions to the theater arts in the 1910s and 1920s by modernist Ukrainian artists, the exhibition tells the story of an avant-garde that generated innovation, entrepreneurship, and, to a large extent, social engagement with contemporary issues. Staging the Ukrainian Avant-Garde showcases 125 original art works for the theater by 13 artists, many who were exiled or executed during the Stalinist purges of the 1930s for their perceived political beliefs. The exhibition comprises 142 objects on loan from the collection of the Museum of Theater, Music, and Cinema Arts of Ukraine in Kyiv including art works on paper of costume, set, and makeup design, photographs, and original posters.

The Tales and Myths of Yohanan Petrovsky-Shtern
March 29 – October 4, 2015 (Extended)
Petrovsky-Shtern brings together the color of East European avant-garde, the warmth of Ukrainian folk painting, and the message of traditional Jewish texts. Although Petrovsky-Shterns main fields of interest are history and literature, ranging from the Jewish Middle Ages to Hasidic folklore, from the prose of Gabriel Garcia Marquez to the Ukrainian renaissance of the 1920s, it is on canvas that the depth of his knowledge of various religions and cultures is transformed into a mysterious world of tales and myths.

Heroes for Freedom
Photographs and artifacts
The ongoing conflict in Eastern Ukraine is vividly understood in this exhibition of photographs and artifacts. Many of the items are on loan from the personal collection of U.S.-born Markian Paslawsky, who became a citizen of Ukraine, and after joining a volunteer battalion, lost his life in the battle for Ilovaisk. This exhibition is a tribute to him, and all the other heroes of the Maidan, and the war in Eastern Ukraine
