Ukrainian Wasyl Palijczuk came to the U.S. at 15 after surviving World War II under dire circumstances, and as a homeless teenager he was placed in Baltimore's foster care system. That precarious beginning led to a life of academic accomplishment and artistic development. A restless artist, he works in diverse media, creating worlds of fantasy and imagination with paint, stone, wood, steel and bronze. This exhibit is a tribute to one man’s courage and artistic determination in the face of great odds. He is now retired Professor Emeritus from McDaniel College and lives and makes art in Baltimore.
Reception on Sunday from 2 - 4 p.m., exhibit runs through Friday, Nov. 30.
