On Thursday, Mar. 24 at 4:30 p.m. Rutland-based artist and former Castleton faculty member Bill Ramage will deliver a gallery talk about his visit to Ukraine 30 years ago and the work of the artists he met there, including Vladimir and Irena Veshtak, who not only hosted Ramage during his trip but brought the original posters with them from Ukraine to the United States. This event is free and open to the public.

Following the exhibit, the posters, produced by Ukrainian artists, will be sent to the Rennert’s Gallery in New York City to be auctioned. All funds raised through the auction will benefit the Ukrainian Medical Association of North America.
