Local artist displays Ukraine photos on canvas

A local resident, Lyn Tretiak, will be displaying her paintings based on photos she took in Ukraine over the past 8 years.

Lyn began to paint canvases from those photos just this year. She will be one of the artists presenting at "Art in the Park" in Maple Ridge June 27-29.

Several of Lyn's 15 canvases about Ukraine will be for sale, as well as prints and cards of all the images. There are also a few non-Ukrainian subjects.

Here's a sample of her work...

Student dancers at Novaya Khokova Fine Arts School on the Dnipre River. 18 x 24 inches, oil. $500 unframed. (Image copyright retained by Lyn Tretiak.)

Profit from sales and orders taken during this show will support two schools in Hytusko and Turianske villages, about 50 miles east of Lviv.

In recent years Lyn and her husband have been providing "extras" for these schools such as excursions, computers, repairs, and supplies.

Come out and help Lyn support these village schools!
