Sterling Demchinsky

Sterling Demchinsky – noted author, historian and photographer – will deliver two presentations at the Festival: 100 Years of Ukrainian Churches in Canada and Lost Folk Art in Ukrainian-Canadian Cemeteries.

Mr. Demchinsky is committed to exploring the glory and the beauty of Ukrainian churches, including the lost art of making home-made cemetery markers. His works are dedicated to the Ukrainians, who over a hundred years ago, began to immigrate in large numbers to Canada in search of a better world in which to raise their families. They took a great gamble but the fruits of that gamble have been sweet.
