The Szydłów Summer 2007 exhibition at the Fine Arts Academy in Warsaw displays works by students, graduates and lecturers from fine arts academies in Cracow and Warsaw, as well as by two talented students from a fine arts high school in Kielce, a city 170 km south of the Polish capital in ¦więtokrzyskie province.

The 150 works, which barely fitted into the academy's huge hall, were painted during a three-week workshop held last summer in Szydłów, a small town of 2,000 in ¦więtokrzyskie province.

It was the 18th time that Szydłów hosted the workshops. Prof. Marian Czapla from Warsaw's Fine Arts Academy, who is the founder and organizer of the workshops, comes from Szydłów, a multicultural town where half the population were Jews before World War II; today only a beautiful synagogue remains. Szydłów's numerous historic sites and its colorful landscape provide inspiration for young artists, and their paintings document the town's many facets.
