Nicholas Bervinchak portrait by Paul Daubner 1933

I want to express my sincere thanks to all of these organizations and their staff and the other individuals who have preserved the unique work of Nick Bervinchak. They include: the Pottsville Public Library (Pa.), the Schuylkill County Historical Society (Pa.), St. George Church (Pa.), The Ukrainian Historical and Education Center of New Jersey, the Ukrainian Museum and Library (Conn.), OOL, The Ukrainian Museum (NYC), Bud and Tina Pellish and Ron Kramer.  My very special thanks goes out to Marion Bervinchak Leschey and her son William and all the Bervinchak family. Their willingness to share their private collection of his artwork has constantly spurred me on to do more. And, to my daughter Alexis whose photos appear throughout this gallery.  I would be lost without her great esthetic sense, technical advice and ongoing encouragement. 

I also want to offer my gratitude to the organizations who worked with me since 2012 to bring Bervinchak's work to the public.  They are:  the Schuylkill County Historical Society, the Ukrainian Educational and Cultural Center (Pa.), the Ukrainian Heritage Studies Center/Manor College (Pa.)UNWLA, Branch Eighty-eight (Pa.), the Eckley Miners' Village (Pa.), the Ukrainian Museum and Library (Conn.), The Ukrainian Museum (NYC), the Ukrainian Lemko Museum and Lemko Research Foundation and The Ukrainian Historical and Education Center of New Jersey. Without them you would never have an opportunity to enjoy and admire his art up close in person.
