Rediscovered Treasures

The Silesian Museum in Katowice is hosting an exhibition entitled Ikony-Skarby Odzyskane (Icons-Rediscovered Treasures), a collection of 150 religious icons dating back to the 19th and early 20th centuries. The icon is the most widely recognized symbol of the Orthodox faith. Icons are more than objects of worship, they're exquisite works of art in their own right.

Agnieszka Graczew-Czarkowska's Labor of Love

Agnieszka Graczew-Czarkowska's Sztuka Kochania (Ars Amandi) exhibition now showing at the Lubuska Land Museum in Zielona Góra features a dozen or so acrylics on canvas created over the past two years. Graczew-Czarkowska's work is an intimate statement about the many shades of love and the joys and sorrows they bring. The artist is concerned with man and child as well as the creative process. Graczew-Czarkowska sees painting as a pathway to self-discovery that leads into the unknown.

Painted Easter Eggs

The Ethnographic Museum in Wrocław is exhibiting a collection of painted Easter eggs which began 40 years ago and now contains around 900 items. East Carpathian eggs from the 1930s are the oldest and most interesting exhibits. Most have traditional Lemko [an ethnic minority inhabiting the East Carpathian region that borders Poland, Slovakia and Ukraine] patterns. There are also more recent exhibits embossed with tin, amber and other materials.
