Asters Presents Icon Art from Lviv
Leading Ukrainian law firm Asters joined forces with the U.S.-Ukraine Business Council in mid-November to host an iconic art exhibition within the framework of the ArtAsters project. The exhibition featured 74 artworks of artists from across Ukraine who cooperate with Lviv’s Iconart Gallery of Contemporary Sacred Art. The Iconart Gallery was established in 2009 and aims to bring the timeless beauty of icon art to modern generations of Ukrainians and international audiences. It specializes in the contemporary artistic interpretation of Ukrainian spiritual topics in today’s cultural context. Over the past six years, the gallery has developed a substantial network of artists throughout Ukraine. It is the only gallery of contemporary sacred art in Ukraine focusing primarily on the spiritual and religious dimensions of contemporary art. The ArtAsters initiative dates back to 2009 and is designed to showcase contemporary Ukrainian artistic talent. ArtAsters events are hosted regularly at the Asters offices in downtown Kyiv, attracting audiences drawn from the international business, political and diplomatic communities.
