Working to shine ......

You may remember an earlier post Mixed Media, Mixed Blessings... on my other blog about this artist Lydia Bodnar-Balahutrak when I visited her studio in the spring. Much of Lydia's current work is personal response to current political issues, but she has for some years now been addressing personal/political issues related to her Ukranian heritage.
From Lydia,
"This year marked the 75-year anniversary of the 1932-33 Famine in Ukraine, the Holodomor.
The following article and images documenting Houston's commemoration of the Holodomor appeared in the December 29, 2008 issue of The Houston Chronicle, page 1, Section B (City and State) and online on here."
