Seen Through Their Dogs
Elżbieta Janczak-Wałaszek graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Wrocław. She produces pottery designs, sculpture and installations. The artist sculpts dogs, seeing in them a reflection of their owners. The exhibition features about 100 works representing dogs and other animals in clay fired at high temperatures and glazed or painted with the use of ceramic techniques.

Icons of War
Ewa Harabasz, born in 1957, worked on conserving historic buildings in Poland and in Rome in the 1980s. She studied at the College for Creative Studies of Art and Design and obtained a degree from the Wayne State University in Detroit. She lives and works in New York. She is a lecturer at Cornell University.

Her Ikony (Icons) series of paintings depicts the innocent victims of tragic events. The artist takes newspaper photographs of natural disasters, wars and terrorist attacks, magnifies and finishes them off with paint, and then provides a golden background. Thanks to the symbolic potential of gold, the works acquire a timeless, spiritual dimension.
