Nassau Community College Plaza Art Gallery Announces
 Events with Lunar Collection Artist Yurko Gutsulyak

Gallery Talk & Closing Reception 2/29/24

Ukrainian artist and designer Yurko Gutsulyak presents intricately designed greeting cards sent annually at Lunar New Year. Celestial bodies, especially the moon, fascinate him. Using Lunar New Year as an annual opportunity to express gratitude to friends, colleagues, and fans, Gutsulyak embarked on a 12-year greeting card project. The exhibition Lunar Collection includes each of the 12 specially designed cards sent across the globe to hundreds of people. Each unique design delights its recipient with a puzzle, a moment of wit and humor, or wishes for good luck in the upcoming year.
