Slovak Hungarians exhibit folk art

THE WORK of Slovak Hungarians is currently being presented in an exhibition entitled Live Traditional Work from the County of Békeš in the northwestern Slovak town of Terchová. The exhibition includes traditional Slovak craft works from Békešská Čaba, Hungary, that were created over the last two years.

The exhibition can be seen in Terchová's museum until March 30 and then it will move to Spišská Nová Ves. Displayed items include embroidery, ceramics, hand-woven fabrics, and baskets that feature traditional Slovak motifs.

"Knowing that Slovakia acknowledges that Slovaks in Hungary have been preserving their culture for 300 years, is an honour for us," Anna Istvánová, director of the House of Slovak Culture in Békešská Čaba, told the SITA news agency.

Slovaks settled in Hungary's Békeš county around 1748.
