Margit Gundlach speaks to Sauk Prairie Optimist Club

Margit Gundlach speaks to Optimist Club


On May 2, Margit Gundlach shared her love of Ukrainian egg painting or pysanka with the Optimist Club.  She also shared her family's history.  Her parents were originally from Ukraine.  During the war her father was sent to a German prison camp and her mother was forced to become a slave laborer.  Margot was born in Germany and was able to eventually come to America.  To keep in touch with her Ukrainian roots she became skilled in the traditional art form of egg painting.  Gundlach shared the many steps taken to create this one-of-a-kind art piece, shared examples of the different Ukrainian styles of painting which differ by county, and demonstrated how to paint an egg.  Many eggs are decorated in homage to the earth, sky and nature. 


The Optimist Club of Sauk Prairie meets on Wednesdays at 7 a.m. (noon the first Wednesday of the month) in the River Room of the Blue Spoon.  New members and visitors are always welcome!
