Art Shows / Awards / Accolades
David and the Pysanka Mosaics were showcased and featured at the 2010 Folklorama Ukraine Kyiv pavilion in Winnipeg (and again in 2011); the art pieces were immediately well-received.
During this time, David was also selected as one of the emerging artists from the Prairie Provinces for the 2010 Prairie Excellence competition and exhibition. The Prairie Excellence Exhibition featured selected artists and their respective artworks, and was exhibited for two years in galleries across North America.
The 2011 " New Dimensions Tour " included exhibitions in Canada and USA: Saskatoon, Saskatchwan (Ukrainian Museum of Canada), Edmonton, Alberta (St. Michael’s Church), Winnipeg, Manitoba (Folklorama Ukraine Kyiv pavilion) and Chicago, Illinois (WAFFU). The art pieces at all exhibitions were once again well received with comments overwhelmingly supportive. Unfortunately, the last leg of the exhibition tour (New York) was cancelled due to a lack of art pieces available for exhibition and sale.
In the last several years, David and the Pysanka Mosaics have been featured in numerous media articles within North America. Dave's work is currently displayed in numerous private art collections in nearly every Canadian province, United States, Singapore, Japan and Hong Kong.
