Petrikyvka Painting Demonstration
November 3, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Local Ukrainian artist, Olena Zintchouk, will give a painting demonstration in Petrykivka, a traditional Ukrainian style of painting. Zintchouk’s paintings are featured in the ‘Image of Ukraine: Exploring Ukrainian Culture through Embroidery and Painting‘ exhibition, currently on display at the FedEx Global Education Center through December 8, 2017.
Along with Petrykivka, the exhibition highlights vyshyvka (Ukrainian embroidery) and includes interviews with the Ukrainian community in North Carolina to illustrate how well-known forms of a folk art can be adapted to new settings and help maintain cultural traditions and identity.
A light reception will take place before the demonstration and Zintchouk will discuss the tools and techniques used in Petrykivka painting. Lesia Zintchouk, daughter of Olena Zintchouk and a Greenville, NC based artist, will participate in the demonstration and assist Olena.
This event is free, but space is limited and RSVP is required. Contact Ingrid Smith, manager of global events and exhibitions for UNC Global, to reserve your spot.
Public parking is available after 5 p.m. underneath the FedEx Global Education Center.
