THE ZEMPLÍNSKE Osvetové Stredisko in Michalovce recently opened Romane Čercheňa (or Roma Stars, in the Romani language), a fine art exhibition by Roma artists, all of whom attended the event.

“Roma fine artists aren’t very well known among the public because there is no possibility to meet them,” Dagmar Horváthová, the exhibition’s organiser and head of the Nová Cesta (New Path) civic association, told the SITA newswire. This was the third time she organised the display, which aims to give emerging Roma artists a forum for displaying their work publicly.

During the exhibition, which closed on November 10, visitors were able to meet all six of the exhibiting artists. Their works were for sale.

“They depict important topics and experiences that the Roma underwent themselves and now they are passing them further,” Horváthová said.
