"Waiting for peace"

Exhibition of graphic artist Krisztina Magyar as an event of the Ars Sacra Festival.

Our exhibitor - a graduate architect, graphic artist and sculpture teacher - has gained expertise in a variety of disciplines. As a painter and teacher, he is a versatile artist, active in several disciplines: she paints, creates both custom and printed graphics, and has worked with glass, clay and textiles. The intention of the present exhibition is in line with the Ars Sacra motto "Seek Peace": paintings, prints and sculptures that help us all to contemplate, to listen inwardly, to find answers and inner silence in the midst of the contradictions and the noise and questions of the world. We cordially invite you to the opening ceremony of the exhibition at the Community Centre on the Hill of Stars!

Opening: at 18.30, Csillaghegyi Community House, Budapest III. Mátyás király út 13-15.

Opening by Erzsébet Schäffer, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, publicist and writer

Musical contribution by Beatrix Tárnoki, folk singer with vocals and cobza

The exhibition is open free of charge from 21 September to 27 October, during the opening hours of the house.

"The small, handful of sculptures entitled "Waiting for Peace" began to take shape in a mural art class with my students, at their request, to show how a ceramic sculpture could be given a face on such a large scale. Born months after the outbreak of the war, in a time of turmoil, I was struck and moved by the gentleness and grace and harmony that radiated from it. The world needs peace.“ Krisztina Magyar
