PUPOSKY — The Wild Rose Theater will host artist Donna Alena Hrabčáková on June 10-11, in the Fleur de Lis Art Gallery at the theater, 24011 Highway 89 NW in Puposky.

At 5 p.m. on Friday, June 10, there will be a meet the artist hour with Hrabčáková, followed by an artist talk at 6 p.m. titled "Holding Trauma and Our Ancestors’ Narratives Through Art." Appetizers will be served.

At 6 p.m. on Saturday, June 11, Hrabčáková will present for the Sister Song Women's Scholarship Concert.

"This art installation and artist talk will allow for a shared space to explore the invasion of Ukraine by Russia through Hrabcakova’s expressionist art full of color, symbols, dreams and visions," a release said.

"Hrabčáková moved to an ancestral home in Slovakia last year on the border of Ukraine. Times were difficult with a lockdown and state of emergency due to COVID in her country. And then the war began. She is a prolific painter and was painting with great depth the stories of her ancestors and region," the release continued.


Hrabčáková came to serve the Red Lake communities after the Red Lake School shooting working as an art therapist. Her greatest love is her passion for art, its healing potential and medicine for so many, the release added.

The exhibit will be on display through June 30.

"Please join us for this wonderful weekend of support, art, community, discussion and sharing collectively this moment in Ukraine," the release said.
