December 7th - Dinner and Songs

We are excited to announce a virtual art exhibition during the month of November titled Holodomor: A Remembrance. The exhibition commemorates the 87th anniversary of the 1932-33 Genocide-Famine in Ukraine and features the compelling and evocative artworks of Houston-based Ukrainian-American artist Lydia Bodnar-Balahutrak.

  • [Narrative from the Exhibition] When Ms. Bodnar-Balahutrak first visited her ancestral homeland in 1991, she stated that her eyes and soul were opened to a land that was beautiful but ravaged by the Soviet regime. The people were long-suffering yet hopeful – the culture was rich but sabotaged. Years of Soviet oppression had left their mark and were visible everywhere. Mass graves were being uncovered, revealing horrific historical events long denied by the Soviet government. This new knowledge of so many innocent victims did not pull her down into despair but rather created an urgent need to tell their stories – which was also her story. Not only did this travel experience change her world view, it also changed her approach to art making. 

The exhibition consists of a slide deck in PDF format, totaling 35 panels in a continuous PDF feed. The project was created by Roksolana Karmazyn, Chrystia Bryndzia, Ksenia Rychtycka, Anizia Karmazyn and Olya Czerkas in conjunction with artist Lydia Bodnar-Balahutrak in an effort to raise awareness of the Holodomor through the moving and palpable medium of the visual arts.

A number of organizations in Texas and beyond have already signed on to host the virtual exhibition. Members of our committee are reaching out to venues beyond Texas to join in hosting the exhibition. Each exhibition venue may build on the virtual visual presentation by creating educational programs, such as a guest speaker or a musical presentation to complement the exhibition on their websites.
