Exhibit: Folk Art of Eastern Europe by Brooks Brager

Tuesday, January 10, 2017

In the artist’s own words, “Ever since I became aware of the Cold War between the United States and the former Soviet Union, I have become fascinated with the countries of Russia and Ukraine, Bulgaria, Poland and other countries in Eastern Europe. I always wondered what lovely treasures lay behind the ‘Iron Curtain’.” The display features several reproductions of Russian and Polish embroidery, which the artist embroidered, along with needlework from other Eastern European States. The display also shows items from the artist’s personal collection of folk art from the East, including paper cutting (Wycinanki in Polish) from Poland and other interesting pieces. Brooks Brager has a Master’s Degree in German Literature and has taken classes in Russian grammar and literature.
