A very interesting exhibition took place in a beautiful building Galeria Willa at the Wólczańska St. 31 in Lodz on September 22, 2016. The exhibition consisted mainly of jewelry made by former students of the School of Fine Arts (now the Strzemiński Academy of Fine Arts in Lodz), and from 8 unique exhibits signed by Helena Kowalewicz-Wegner.

Two weeks ago I had the great pleasure of interviewing five jewelry artists: Marcin Tyminski, Bogumił Bytomski, Arek Wolski, Paweł Kaczyński and Krzysztof Roszkiewicz, who in 2001 founded an artistic group, with a catchy name, SIX.

Amber is a material which possesses a hidden potential of thousands years stopped in time, and… a little bit of magic. About how unique and inspiring the stone is, you can find out by visiting the Museum of the Earth in Warsaw, where two very interesting exhibitions are taking place at that moment.

The culmination of the 37th edition of the Festival SILVER in Legnica took place on 20-22 May. Not only is this festival a contemporary jewelery competition – it is also a global overview of what contemporary artists create and what kind of topics, techniques and materials are familiar to them.

Milan 2016 Part 2 – Ventura Lambrate and more…

The time has come for another part of the article about the design week in Milan. In the first part I wrote about Miart and Trienale. I also promised that this time I would tell you a little about the exhibitions taking place at the Ventura Lambrate  – and that I would prepare an overview of the products, which could become a valuable complement to the interior of a modern showroom, a design studio or an art gallery. I reckon this is a good time to tell you that the article will reveal much more.

Milan 2016 part 1– Miart & Triennale

Once again I was able to visit the north of Italy and take part in series of events related to art and design, which I wrote about in the article Milan Design Week 2015. This year, I went a little earlier to see the Miart art fair, which for me was a pleasant novelty. Once again I became convinced that it is worth to take part in events that do not relate to our specialization directly – to look at some issues related to art and design in bigger perspective.
