Jan. 13, 2011 - PRLog -- "Art Exhibit by Volodymyr Ilchyshyn” at the Ukrainian National Museum.

The Ukrainian National Museum is beginning 2011 with an exciting new exhibit, featuring the art of the young and gifted Volodymyr Ilchyshyn. Pencil drawings, silver tips and oil paintings will be showcased in the exhibit. Opening on Friday, February 4th at 7:00 pm and continues through February 27th.  

Born in May of 1992 in Khodoriv, a small city outside of Lviv, Ukraine, he immigrated to the US with his parents and younger brother Vasyl in 2000.  Born in May of 1992 in Khodoriv, a small city outside of Lviv, Ukraine, he immigrated to the US with his parents and younger brother Vasyl in 2000.  Both brothers are graduates of St. Nicholas Cathedral School and current students at St. Ignatius High School.  Active in the community, Volodymyr is a multi-talented young man; an active member of the American Ukrainian Youth Assn., a dancer with the Hromovytsia Ukrainian Dance Ensemble and a talented and developing young artist with dreams of becoming an architect. This dream is showcased in his paintings and drawings featuring cathedrals, churches, and familiar buildings from his childhood.  Recognizing their son’s talents, Volodymyr’s parents encouraged his studies with professional artists including Yulia Tkachuk, Anatolij Khmara, Walter Monastyretsky, and Father Jim Vorwoldt.  Volodymyr’s artwork has been featured in the Summer 2010 St. Ignatius Magazine “Gallery” and his work received the highest winning bid at the St. Ignatius Annual Auction.

Volodymyr has completed a number of portraits, including his father Bohdan and his teacher Father Jim Vorwoldt. Incredible in their detail and depth, it might be easy to mistake the pencil drawing for a black and white photograph. Volodymyr’s artistic eye and talent have allowed him to master this art.            

Vasyl Ilchуshyn, Volodymyr’s younger brother, will lend his talent to the event by playing the piano at the exhibit opening night. Bringing innovative and original ideas to their work, jngy young artists remind us that Ukrainian culture lives on in them. It is important for these new emerging talents to be supported in a culture that strives to maintain their traditions with each new generation.  The Ukrainian National Museum hopes to provide that environment and deepen its relations with the youth of the community for future endeavors.    

The Ukrainian National Museum is located in the heart of the Ukrainian Village, at 2249 W. Superior St. in Chicago. Hours: Thursday through Sunday, 11 am to 4 pm  Admission: Adults $5.00, Children under 12 - Free.  Driving instructions available at www.ukrainiannationalmuseum.org.
