On March 22 and 23 at Grovewood Gallery, Andrea Kulish will demonstrate the ancient Ukranian art of pysanky, a wax-resistant method of decorating Easter eggs. Each egg is designed as a wish, with symbols and colors intended to bring the person who receives it love, health, success or whatever attribute the artist selects. A first-generation Ukrainian-American, Kulish learned the intricate art of pysanky, which translates to “written eggs,” as a young girl. Now, she not only creates them, using unique folk-inspired designs, but she also teaches classes in the art. Finished work will be on display and available to purchase.
