Art Duet: A Grand Exhibition

An illustration by Vitaly Umansky

Two local artists hailing from the former Soviet Union are exhibiting their works at the Kings Bay YM-YWHA this Saturday.

Vitaly Umansky was born in the Ukraine and lived in Israel before moving to Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn. A graduate of FIT, Vitaly’s illustrations combine childish dreamscapes and imagery with mature and often political themes. You can find examples of his work at Umansky’s website.

Yana Yevdayev was born in Uzbekistan and also graduated from FIT. The Midwood resident is showing a range of colorful paintings, drawings and prints with a variety of themes. You can view her artwork here.

The Saturday evening show kicks of at 8:30 p.m. and is open to all. The Kings Bay YM-YWHA is located at 3495 Nostrand Avenue. Refreshments will be served.
