Art at the Institute was pleased to present an exhibition of etchings by American artist of Lemko ancestry, Nicholas Bervinchak (1903-1978). Executed mostly during the Great Depression and into the following decade, these prints document the miners, tools, working conditions, and family life surrounding the isolated anthracite coal mining towns (also known as patches) of northeast Pennsylvania. The opening reception together with a presentation by guest curator, writer and genealogist Mike Buryk took place on Friday, September 28, 2018. The exhibition will remain on view until October 21, 2018.
