Pasta - opening of the pastel painting exhibition

9 October 2020

BWA SOKÓŁ Gallery

Pastel painting from the collection of the Polish Pastelists Association.
Since 1987 the BWA SOKÓŁ Contemporary Art Gallery has been organizing reviews of pastel painting, since 2002 in an international formula. In 1995, the artists taking part in the exhibitions established the Association of Polish Pastellists based in Nowy Sącz, which promotes this type of painting. At the exhibition "PASTA" we present a selection of several dozen works from the collection of the Association of Polish Pastelists. These works are mainly landscape painting made with dry or oil pastel, less often in a mixed technique (as a combination of these two pastel species). By selecting the works for the exhibition, we wanted to show the technical possibilities of pastel, and the variety of representations, a landscape theme common to almost all works - from abstraction to traditional, realistic paintng.
