I was charmed and impressed by the Ukrainian Renaissance exhibition at Worthing Museum. Yaroslava and her colleague explained each of the displays, including paintings, embroidery, headbands and brooches.
The exhibit celebrates and immerses visitors in the rich tapestry of Ukrainian art and culture and runs until Sunday 11th February, 2024. It is free to enter.
The curator of the exhibition, Irma Latsanich, gave a personal tour of the exhibition. She explained in depth about all the artists involved from across Worthing and Arun. The communication manager and author of icons, Yaroslava Matvieienko, gave further information regarding the historical context of the exhibits.
The exhibitors and artists should be applauded for their differing styles and mediums.
Russia says there’s no Ukrainian culture, or music, or language. They want to erase Ukrainian culture just as they want to destroy Ukrainian freedom. This exhibit showcase, amidst the ongoing conflict with Russia, is lasting proof that Putin cannot destroy the freedom and cultural liberty of the people of Ukraine.
We must continue to be unequivocal and unwavering in our support for the free people of Ukraine: I expect that, my constituents expect that, the people of the free world expect that.
