Cieszyn based Szara Gallery is an independent non-commercial venue run by the Audiovisual Culture Foundation ‘Strefa Szarej’. Joanna Rzepka-Dziedzic and Łukasz Dziedzic have been managing the gallery since 2005.
Szara focuses mainly on young up coming artists. The core idea of the gallery is to explore art from Poland, Slovakia and Czech Republic, and to connect artists with cultural institutions. Activities including music concerts, lectures, workshops and conferences form a vital part of the gallery programme.
The gallery has a reading room with many contemporary art and culture publications. Szara also publishes books, catalogues, cd’s, along with online and other media publications.
