This Friday, the Phyllis Weston gallery in O’Bryonville opens Uniquely Ukraine, a two-person exhibition featuring paintings by David Miretsky and Svetlana Derenshuk.

Miretsky’s intriguing miniature works reflect his life-long interest in the human condition. Ukraine resident Svetlana Derenshuk’s works are grounded in the Orthodox tradition of icon painting, but encompass an expanded definition of the term. Her flat, boldly colored forms reflect modernist sensibilities and her work’s subject matter embraces the joy of life. Opening reception is from 5-8 p.m.; exhibition continues through March 31. The Phyllis Weston Gallery is located at 2005 1/2 Madison Ave. and is open 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday. 513-321-5500.
