Ukrainian Yard

Oil on canvas, 2016, 30"w x 24"h x 1"d

Fine art was always a big part of my life. Originally from Ukraine, I moved to the United States in early 2001. The selection of my artwork has Ukrainian influences with personal and political subject matter. The Ukrainian Yard painting challenges the hierarchy between folk art and fine art by combining a traditional academic composition with the decorative arts found on everyday items like the embroidered linens in my grandmother’s village home. I am depicting the beauty of the Ukrainian rural landscape, the way it has always been in spite of all of the conflicts and problems.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
