• The Holy Trinity Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedral•

    The Holy Trinity Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedral is located a block west of Main on 10th Avenue.

    For the past 15 years on the first Friday of every month, they hold their famous “Perogy Night” where they offer a selection of Ukrainian foods. The food is delicious – each perogy is hand made! – and complete hearty dinners are “cheap like borsch” as my Baba would say. It’s so popular that there are often line-ups to get in for what is widely considered the best Ukrainian dinner in town.

    This is painted with a few Byzantine touches – notably shiny gold foil and my usual somewhat El Greco-influenced style. I intended to make it look a little like praying hands or perhaps vestments.
