Eye of the Beholder (Don't Close Your Eyes)

Ukrainian Artists Respond to the War

November 10 – December 22, 2022

In early May, Hanna Melnyczuk contacted the gallery about a project she was beginning to work on. Hanna is an artist and teaches at UMASS Lowell.

In her email she wrote, “I am organizing a show of small works by Ukrainian artists. The images are their reflections on the war…Would this be something that would interest you?” Thus began our journey of coordinating the logistics of bringing their work to the gallery.

Soon after the war began Hanna connected with Halyna Andrusenko, an artist in Lviv who helped to coordinate and ship work to the US. Halyna is a co-curator of the show, and a practicing artist herself. Both she and Hanna will be part of the exhibition.

That defense has taken various forms, with civilians digging deep to find the courage to fight against their aggressors in Ukraine’s armed forces, or resolutely staying put in their homes, or helping their neighbors in need, any way they can find to do their bit.
