“CHILDHOOD AT THE FOOT OF THE TATRA MOUNTAINS” – TEMPORARY EXHIBITION    
 

17th May – 2nd November
 
The Gallery of Art in Koziniec
(branch of the Tatra Museum)
Zakopane, Droga na Koziniec 8
 

This exhibition is an attempt to sketch a picture of childhood in the traditional culture of the rural Polish Tatras from the late nineteenth century to the first years after the Second World War. It is often an uneasy image of childhood, marked by poverty - but not devoid of warmth, joyful experiences and dreams. Regardless of the individual features and unique history, childhood determined the nature of the traditional family. The environment of this region influenced this, specifying the type of economic activities and the particularly difficult living conditions.

ARTISTS AND ART IN ZAKOPANE    
 

The Gallery of 20th Century Art at Oksza villa,
the newest branch of the Tatra Museum
Zakopane, ul. Zamoyskiego 25
 
The exhibition presents the output of the artistic community and artists who were temporarily connected with Zakopane at a time when the village was Poland’s leading centre of artistic excellence. All of them drew inspiration from the Tatra mountains and the Tatra Highlander culture. The display is presented in the interiors of Oksza villa, designed by Stanisław Witkiewicz in 1894 in the Zakopane Style, which was restored by the Tatra Museum in 2010.
 
KAZIMIERZ SICHULSKI’S CARICATURES AT KOLIBA VILLA    
 

This collection of caricatures by Kazimierz Sichulski, drawn between 1914 and 1917, is now on display on the first floor of the Museum of the Zakopane Style at Koliba villa. It has replaced the longstanding display of portraits of The Stanisław Ignacy Witkiewicz Portrait Painting Firm which can now be seen at the Gallery of 20th Century Art at Oksza villa.
