Peter Oresick,(1955-2016) was a poet, publisher, professor, and painter of Carpatho-Rusyn descent.

The son and grandson of glassworkers, Peter grew up in the working class factory town of Ford City, PA located northeast of Pittsburgh on the Allegheny River. The church he attended—St. Mary’s Ukrainian Catholic Church—was covered floor to ceiling in sacred icons painted in the Eastern Orthodox Byzantine tradition.

His paintings, as well as his poetry, explore the themes of work, workers, and the working class, as well as family, regional history, and the interplay between the sacred and the secular. In the paintings exhibited here, Oresick explores his fascination with these topics utilizing the signature of traditional iconography.

Stephanie Flom will be at the Bost Building on Saturday, December 2, 2017 from 12 noon until 2:00 pm to talk about Peter Oresick’s work.
