    Celebrate the arrival of spring at the Ukrainian Museum Gala this Saturday

    The Gala Celebration of Spring at The Ukrainian Museum this Saturday, March 21, promises to be the social event of the season. For the first time since moving to its new location on East 6th Street, the Museum is holding a fête in its sumptuous galleries. Guests will be surrounded by colorful exhibitions of works by David Burliuk and Mychajlo Moroz, entertained by the Askold Buk Trio (jazz) and violinist Marian Pidvirny, served tasty hors d'oeuvres made by chef Andrij Sonevytsky, with white wine and champagne offered on the beverage tables. No tuxes – strictly evening cocktail wear. And if you're interested in networking, don't forget to pack your business cards.

    The evening will include a special auction of works by a number of well-known artists, beginning with a lithograph by Archipenko, one of the most influential artists of the 20th century, a watercolor by Burliuk, known as the Father of Futurism in Ukraine and Russia, and three woodcuts by Hnizdovsky, arguably, the most popular of Ukrainian artists.

    The list is filled out with works by Ivan Marchuk (reputed to be one of the 100 living geniuses), Alexander Motyl (artist, novelist, and political scientist - competition for Ivan Marchuk?), Zenowij Onyshkewych, Arcadia Olenska-Petryshyn, Lidia Piaseckyj, Natalia Pohrebinska, Romana Rainey, Christina Saj, George Thaddeus Saj, Tamara Skrypka, Valeriy Skrypka, Ilona Sochynsky, and Marta Hirniak-Voyevidka.

    All of the artwork was donated to the Museum especially for this event. Estimated values so far range from a low of $175 to a high of $7,000.

    The auction will take place in the 2nd floor gallery of the Museum during the evening. The Museum is welcoming faxed bids from those who will not be there in person. The auction items may be viewed online (two are still missing, but according to the Museum all of the data will be finalized by mid-week). Scroll through the auction slides here .

    If fine art isn't your bag, you might want try your luck at winning two round-trip tickets to Ukraine, which were donated by Aerosvit Ukrainian Airlines.

    It's a Museum fundraising event, of course, and guests will be encouraged to make donations or participate in the auction. However, guests are equally welcome to just observe and have a fun evening as they mingle with others. No assigned seating (nor, btw, will there be a dance floor; whew! no pressure), thus the Museum is still accepting reservations.

    Call the Museum at 212-228-0110 to make your reservation by this Friday, March 20. Tickets are $125 ($75 of this amount is tax-deductible; VISA and MASTERCARD accepted). Remember – not only will you have a fabulous time – you'll be supporting an important community cause, i.e., The Ukrainian Museum.
