Superblooms blazed through California earlier this spring, and now San Franciscans can revel in the floral folk art of Ukraine during a three-day pop-up at Bernal Heights’ Four Chicken Gallery from Saturday through Monday. 

The celebration of traditional Ukrainian arts and crafts will highlight a range of textiles, jewelry and handmade goods. Masterly embroidered clothes in honor of International Vyshyvanka Day, which celebrates the country’s national garment, and an array of decorative Petrykivka-style floral paintings by artist Maria Yanenko are highlights of the showcase.  

Saturday features traditional craft workshops for kids and adults. Sunday includes a listening party and a Ukrainian-style salon. Sip tea and join a community healing circle on Monday. An auction to support Ukrainian artists, will also be held and is your chance to take home a piece of Ukrainian cultural history.
