CANTON - Elizabeth (Libby) Brandt of Canton has been decorating pysanky—traditional Ukrainian Easter eggs—for over 40 years. More than 100 of her extraordinary creations will be on display at The TAUNY Center from Saturday through March 30.

The artist will be at TAUNY at the exhibit opening from 1 to 2 p.m. Saturday to answer questions about her work.

Pysanky are created using a wax-resist and over-dyeing technique, and incorporate traditional, richly symbolic designs. Pysanky decorating was a family tradition for Libby’s children, and they have now passed it on to their children.

Libby’s husband, Denny, has even created a special mechanical means for blowing out eggs quickly and efficiently.

TAUNY is a non-profit organization dedicated to showcasing the folk culture and living traditions of the north country. The TAUNY Center and North Country Folkstore are located at 53 Main St., Canton.

Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday to Friday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.
