October 8 - October 30
Reception for the artist: Friday, October 8 from 6:00 to 8:00pm
In compliance with the most current New York State and New York City COVID public health and safety
guidelines, proof of vaccination and masks are required for attendance of this event.
Art at the Institute is delighted to present an exhibition of recent paintings by Ukrainian-American artist
Ilona Sochynsky: Études (2020–21), Fugues (2016–2017), and Impromptus (2021). Instrumental in her
journey from elaborate hyperrealism of earlier years to current explorations in abstraction, these three series
of works maintain a semblance of lyricism in tone and execution consistent with Ms. Sochynsky’s
established and exacting approach to the flat picture plane.
Curated by Walter Hoydysh, PhD, Director of Art at the Institute, this exhibition marks Ms. Sochynsky’s
fourth solo showing with The Ukrainian Institute of America. An opening reception for the artist will be
held on Friday, October 8 from 6:00–8:00pm.
Ilona Sochynsky has participated in solo and group exhibitions at the Ukrainian Institute of America (New
York), The Ukrainian Museum (New York), The Noyes Museum of Art (Atlantic City, NJ), Windham Fine
Arts Gallery (Windham, NY), and Kaaterskill Fine Arts Gallery (Hunter, NY). Her works are included the
permanent collections of The Ukrainian Museum (New York) and the Zimmerli Art Museum (Rutgers
University, New Brunswick, NJ). Ms. Sochynsky is a member of the Ukrainian Institute of America.
Exhibition hours: Thursday to Sunday, 12:00–6:00pm, or by appointment.
