Anatole Kolomayets Exhibition Opening
The Ukrainian Institute of Modern Art welcomes an exhibition of paintings from Ukrainian/Chicago artist, Anatole Kolomayets. Born in the Poltava region of Ukraine, Kolomayets (b.1927) relocated to Chicago upon graduation from the Royal Academy of Arts in Liege, Belgium, 1954. He has since firmly established himself as an artist in Chicago within the international community. His work has been shown in numerous solo and group exhibitions, and he was one of the founders of the Ukrainian Artists’ Group “Monolith”, active in Chicago 1954-1958. This exhibition will focus on a selection of works from the last two decades. Intuitively selecting stylistic traces from both his Ukrainian heritage and his artistic training in Europe, Kolomayets has forged a distinct aesthetic that harmoniously blends tradition, experience, and innovation.
Exhibit running through March 28, 2010
Event Cost: $5
Hours are Wednesday through Sunday, 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.
