on view at The Art League Gallery July 10—August 4, 2019. 

Opening Reception July 11, 2019. 6:30–8:30 pm.


 Inspired by folklore from her native Ukrainian, painter Inna Skidan expresses the joy, sorrow, and comedy of life through dreamlike, whimsical narratives. Her mixed media works combine tempera, oil, acrylic, tissue paper and pastel, infusing tales handed down over generations with a touch of magic, mirth, and modern sensibilities.

Animated Shorts and Q&A with Ignacio Seranno and Xiao Hua Yang
