Ukrainian Sowing by Ilya Yarovoy, 2022. Paper, pencil and maker. -  Volodymyr Zelensky said, “To all the countries of the former Soviet Union: Look at us, Everything is possible.”  -  This is one of the images from the ‘Don’t Close Your Eyes’ exhibit of Ukrainian Art in support of the war effort, organized by Ukrainian-American artist and Groton resident Hanna Melnyczuk.
