DURHAM, NC — Horrifying images are emerging from Ukraine as Russia continues its brutal invasion.
On Friday, dozens of Ukrainian civilians were killed in a rocket strike on a train station used to evacuate people.
Back home in North Carolina, it’s not just Ukrainians doing whatever they can to help.
Marta Brassil is Polish-American and owner of EUtopia.design.
She is holding a silent art auction on Saturday evening at the PS118 art gallery, benefiting Ukrainian artists who have fled their country.
All proceeds will go to the Polish Sculpture Center in Oronsko, Poland.
“They have opened what are called emergency residencies for Ukrainian artists so that people can find shelter and a studio to continue doing their work,” Brassil said.
