Oseredok has the best volunteers! Whether coming for their shift in the Boutique, picking up boxes of stuffed envelopes to deliver to the post office, or meticulously sorting through boxes of donated documents, our volunteers do so with extraordinary dedication.
Some proudly call their volunteer work "my job", others say "I just love being here at Oseredok".
Whatever the reasons driving them to be here or to answer a call for assistance, we are truly and humbly grateful for them!
In the course of a year approximately 60 volunteers spend over 2,000 hours helping Oseredok with workshops, exhibits, receptions, collections management, building maintenance, and so much more!
They help get every job done, and they make every job easier!
We salute their dedication and their incredible spirit of volunteerism!
LEGACY OF THE COSSACK ELITE
A repeat performance, this exhibition highlights some unusual artifacts in Oseredok's collection from the 17th and 18th centuries. Cossack society of that time was made up of various social classes. At the top of the social structure was a wealthy and powerful political elite called the Cossack starshyna. Its tastes permeated the arts, literature, music, education, customs and manners, including fashion. Legacy of the Cossack Elite places textile design within the context of the clothing of the period, reflecting on secular life and religious ritual of the time.
April 21 to June 9, 2012
Related to an exhibition at the Art Gallery of Southwestern Manitoba, this show consists of a series of images on postcards referencing the life of Alex Tabolotney, McFadden's great uncle, who was murdered in 1995. The images represent an exploration of family memories, moments in time from family albums.
The book With Alec in Mind is available at Oseredok Boutique!
