This will be a two-year solo exhibition of paintings and serigraphs inspired by Ukrainian pioneer settlement.

Information about the exhibition:

2017 marks the 125th anniversary of the arrival, from Ukraine, of the first group of pioneers, who settled in the Edna-Star area west of Edmonton. Prior to the arrival of this first group of settlers, in September, 1891, two adventurous Ukrainians, Eleniak and Pylypiw, had travelled to Canada to determine if the open, unsettled prairies were suitable for settlement. Their favourable reports led to the subsequent arrival of thousands of land-hungry, industrious farmers and their families, who settled across the prairies.

During his career of more than forty years as an artist, Peter Shostak has drawn upon the pioneering experiences of these settlers for some of his artistic inspiration.
