An exhibition of photography tied to Ukraine from March 12–May 8
(Fridays–Sundays, 2 p.m.–6 p.m.)
In Ukraine, an exhibit of works from Ukrainian photographers (in and out of the country) and photographers with ties to expat Ukrainian communities will be on display Fridays to Sundays (2 p.m.–6 p.m.) at The Gallery at Dobbin Mews (50 Dobbin Street) from March 12–May 8.
Ukrainian born photographer Ira Lupu now based in NYC studied her art at International Center of Photography (NYC) and Viktor Marushchenko’s School of Photography (Kyiv). The idea for a show that would bring a better comprehension of Ukraine to the rest of the world had been swirling in her mind. The swirling stopped and this idea became focused action and then actuality after Putin ordered the invasion of her homeland.
Another of the artists in this show, Elena Subach, as reported by The Guardian is presently in Ukraine helping “women, children and the elderly cross from Ukraine into Slovakia.” She is quoted in the article, “This story is not just about pain. It is also about pride for Ukrainian people who have united and become a single living organism – and for the armed forces, as well as for the courage and bravery of the people who defend the country.”
