Ukrainian art and music will be featured tomorrow (Thursday, July 28) at the Carriage Barn Arts Center in New Canaan.

Come to the arts center during regular business hours (10 a.m. to 3 p.m.) to view a special exhibit by Ukrainian artist Olha Pilyuhina, whose detailed tapestries combine the traditions of the country’s weaving industry and ancient history.

Pilyuhina’s tapestries were shipped to the U.S. to prevent or minimize their exposure to the current Russian occupation in the eastern Ukraine region of Poltava. This is the first time her works have been displayed in America and some pieces in the exhibit can be purchased.

The Pilyuhina exhibit will be on display through this Saturday (July 30).

In the evening, guests can listen to vocalist and instrumentalist Olya Fryz (pictured at right) will sing and play the bandura, a 58-string instrument that combines elements of the zither and lute. The one-hour performance by Fryz, who grew up and trained in New York City, begins at 6 p.m. Her show will feature traditional folk music that reflects longtime Ukrainian concepts.

Tickets for the performance by Fryz are $10 and can be purchased here.
