Yuriy Pavlovich Museum of Hutsul carvings

On November 14, 2014, the Yuriy Pavlovich Hutsul Carving Museum opened for visitors on the first floor of the Hotel “Europa” in Rakhiv. His collection was collected so that the younger generation of Ukrainians would remember the traditions of folk crafts.

The exhibition of the center includes unique bartki, plates, candlesticks, horns and other works of applied art made by the craftsman. All products are made in the technique of ordinary and dry carving with inlays of bacunt, necklace, bone, brass nails and mother-of-pearl. Each of them exists in one instance. This is explained by the fact that the author does not produce them for sale, but in order to compile an artistic encyclopedia of the Hutsul region.

Yuriy Pavlovich: biography

Yurii Pavlovich was born on May 10, 1942 in the Zakarpattia region in a village called Chinadievo.

After graduating from high school, he worked as a carpenter, and then was drafted into the ranks of the armed forces to serve in the North Caucasus.

After demobilization, he chose the Institute of Applied and Decorative Arts of the city of Lviv, but the first two attempts to enter there were unsuccessful. The third led to the fact that he finally replenished the number of students of the forge of artistic personnel in the class of furniture and interior design.

In 1971, Yu. Pavlovich received a diploma of the educational institution. He was offered the position of chief engineer-architect of Mukachevo. But he preferred to go to the village of Drachine in order to start work at the souvenir and art factory.

Later, he worked in Svalyavshchyna and Uzhhorod. In Kosovo, he found a place in a well-known production association of carvers. Pavlovich believes that it was here that he managed to pass his main universities. The most interesting creative projects opened before him and the most responsible production tasks in the life of those years stood.

His active exhibition activity began in the 70s. In 1983, his first personal exhibition was opened at the Museum of Folk Art of Hutsul Region and Pokuttia. Then residents of Kyiv, Kolomyia, Kosov, Uzhhorod and other cities of Ukraine could see his works.
Yuriy Pavlovich’s works were highly praised by critics and attracted the admiration of exhibition visitors. In 2002, he was awarded the Grand Prix of the 12th International Hutsul Festival. And in 2004, he was awarded the title of laureate of the Danylo Scherbakovsky Art Prize.
