Masterpieces created by craftsmen from Poltava region in the mid 19th century were shown to the public in Poltava.

From January 10 to January 20, 2010, at the Poltava Art Gallery, folk art lovers were offered the rare opportunity to view a small portion of the Gallery's extensive collection of Ukrainian handicrafts and folk art mostly dated after mid 19th century, including many fine examples of costumes, embroidery, ceramics, wood carving and weaving. These exhibits of traditional Ukrainian art have been created mostly by skilled craftsmen lived in Poltava region. Because of lack of halls for the temporary exhibitions many unique exhibits are preserving in Gallery’s storerooms and not accessible for the visitors. This exhibition attracted many visitors including foreign tourists.
