Maryna Bilak - CARE

Solo show - CARE

Hudson Hall at the Historic Opera House
February 2nd - March 17th
Reception with the artist February 2nd, 5-7pm

An exhibition documenting the unseen process of caring for someone with Alzheimer’s—in this case, the artist’s mother-in-law, Dorothy. Through charcoal drawings, fresco, sculpture, and painting, Bilak’s installation delves into the different roles that the act of caretaking requires from each person involved, including the patient herself. The exhibition opens with a reception with the artist on February 2nd, 2019 from 5 to 7pm, featuring a performance of an original song composed for the exhibition by Memphis-based pianist Michael S. Jaynes. The piece is inspired by Jaynes’ own experience caring for his mother, also an Alzheimer’s sufferer.  
Molly McCann, MHA, Associate Director of Programs and Services: Diversity and Inclusion Initiatives, at the Alzheimer's Association of Northeastern New York will also be speaking.
Show is curated by Emily O'Leary.
