The Graphic Arts and Poster Gallery in Warsaw turns 35 this year and is marking the anniversary with a special exhibition entitled 35x35.

Art historian Nina Rozwadowska and painter Andrzej Stroka, the gallery managers, have asked 35 artists whose works have been shown at the gallery over the years to paint a picture 35 by 35 centimeters in size for the exhibition, which is taking place Oct. 8-27.

The Graphic Arts and Poster Gallery was founded in 1976 as part of the Desa State Enterprise and was the first gallery in Warsaw to specialize in graphic arts. Its first home was at 30 Rutkowskiego St. (now Chmielna Street), and was then relocated to larger premises at 40 Hoża St. In 1999, it was transformed into a private gallery.

The gallery mainly hosts individual exhibitions of work by graphic artists, book illustrators and poster designers. Exhibitions usually last more than two weeks. For years, the gallery has focused on promoting outstanding Polish artists who work with graphic techniques on paper.

Exhibitions at the gallery feature a wide range of contemporary Polish graphic design, including contemporary Polish posters (after 1945) and Polish illustrations to children’s literature from the 1960s onwards. The gallery’s interests also extend to contemporary Polish photography.

The Graphic Arts and Poster Gallery has organized and co-organized exhibitions accompanying the Warsaw International Poster Biennale and has launched exhibitions abroad dealing with selected aspects of Polish culture. Artists affiliated with the gallery hail from the fine arts academies in Cracow and Warsaw and the Strzemiński Academy of Art in ŁódĽ. Artists whose works have been shown at the gallery include Henryk Tomaszewski, Jan Lenica, Jan Młodożeniec, Waldemar ¦wierzy, Jan Cybis, Erna Rosenstein, Eugeniusz Markowski, Jacek Sienicki, Franciszek Starowieyski, Andrzej Dudziński, Teresa P±gowska, Tadeusz Dominik and Jan Tarasin.
