This post was updated on 23 September 2024. Reason for update: Added photographs from opening day of the exhibition of Ukrainian culture at Worthing Museum
The exhibition of Ukrainian Renaissance: Art, Craft and History at Worthing Museum & Gallery opened on Saturday 23rd September 2023 and will run until Sunday 11th February 2024.
The best of what Ukraine has to offer in terms of its rich and diversified cultural contributions to European culture over more than a thousand years of history is represented by a group of artists working in a variety of styles, mediums, and backgrounds.
I visited the exhibition on its opening day, viewed the beautiful artworks and met some of the artists.
As part of a sizeable group in Worthing, Ukrainians are now part of the culture of our town. It is, therefore, fitting that their customs and culture have a prominent representation at Worthing Museum & Gallery.
I can testify that this exhibition is an immersive opportunity for us to become better acquainted with our new friends in Worthing.
After viewing the exhibition, I was invited for coffee in Worthing town centre and was delighted to meet and chat with more of our Ukrainian friends.
