Art can tell stories, ignite imagination, and stir emotions. As a gallery and as a community our hearts go out to the Ukrainian people whose country is being subjected to an unprovoked attack by Putin’s Russian military. The Cooperative Gallery 213 is organizing “Art for Ukraine” a weekend of art that will raise funds and awareness Friday April 29th from 5- 8 pm and Saturday April 30th from 11- 6 pm. Admission is free and donations and sales welcome.
This exciting exhibit will feature artwork by invited Ukrainian artists along with work by the Gallery’s Exhibiting and Supporting Members. Funds raised from the sale of art will be donated to local charities, including the Together for Ukraine Foundation and St. John’s Ukrainian Refugee and Humanitarian Assistance Fund. According to gallery president, Karen Kuff-Demicco, “We are pleased to unite with the area’s Ukrainian-American community and local artists to raise support for direct humanitarian assistance for those displaced by the war.”
