Mirko Pylyshenko taught printmaking at SUNY Brockport during the Cold War era, and for more than 60 years has served the Rochester Ukrainian community in the fields of the arts, education, religion, youth programs, and the credit union movement. Pylyshenko's work — characterized by graphic, bold lines and figurative elements — has been shown widely. He also created the BOA Editions logo.
There's just a few more days left to catch an exhibit of 52 years of his linocuts and etchings in "Mirko Pylyshenko Retrospective: Prints from 1956-2017," which is on view through December 30 at Flower City Arts Center's Joe Brown Gallery.
Flower City Arts Center is at 713 Monroe Avenue. Open Monday through Thursday, noon to 7 p.m.; Friday, noon to 5 p.m. Free admission. 244-9312; rochesterarts.org.
