"MADE IN KYIV ~ MADE IN NEW YORK", commissioned by the D. Hoydysh Endowment for the Arts, will be debuted this fall at the Ukrainian Institute of America's Fifth Avenue galleries during the month of November 2005.

This exhibition of new intaglio prints is timed to coincide with The International Fine Art Print Dealer Association's Fine Art Print Week in New York City. The planned world tour of the portfolio will culminate with a closing exhibition and celebration in Kyiv during May 2006. Mr. Hoydysh was assisted by freelance program coordinator Alexander Demko in the development of the project initiated some two years ago.

Ukrainian artist contributions to the portfolio come from Oleh Denysenko, Konstyantyn Kalynovych, Kostiantyn Antiuhin, Sergiy Ivanov, and Sergiy Hrapov. The New Yorker's contributing to the project are Stephen A. Fredericks, Andy P. Hoogenboom, Denise Kasof, Steven Walker and Tom B. White.

The prints have been published in an edition of 60 with no artist proofs.

The American prints were pulled on radiant white Somerset paper, and the Ukrainian prints on a crème toned Arches printmaker's paper. Each of the prints measures 11" x 15" to the outside margin with varying plate sizes.

Oleh Denysenko, in addition to his print, designed the exclusive presentation folios. Special features include cover embossing and labeling with characters developed by the artist specifically for the project.

The Ukrainian Institute of America is a nonprofit organization founded fifty years ago whose primary mission is to showcase and support Ukrainian culture. To that end, the Institute affords the general public an opportunity to learn about Ukrainia and how the Ukraine spirit expresses itself with special emphasis on the creative arts.

The portfolio will be on exhibit at the Institute from November 4-30th 2005. Viewing hours are Wednesday thru Sunday 12pm -6pm.
