Among the artists featured in In Bloom is Oleksa Novakivsky, “whose art school in Lviv (1923-1933), as well as a vigorous and extensive painting technique, influenced a generation of young artists.”

A notable presence at the exhibition is a selection of works by Vasily Grigorovich Krichevsky. According to a guest curator, “the soft lyricism of Krychevsky's still lifes is surpassed only by the breathtaking scale of his work as an architect, painter, graphic designer and one of the main founders of the Ukrainian Academy of Arts in 1917.”

Spectators will be delighted by the presented numerous items of folk art: exquisitely woven carpets, women's costumes, embroidered shirts, wicker wrap skirts, embroidered and woven ritual towels mainly from the central regions of Ukraine, as well as a rich exposition of Ukrainian decorative and ornamental folk art, intricately decorated Easter eggs (pysanky ) and ceramics of the Hutsul region.
