The culmination of the jubilee 40th edition of Legnica SILVER Festival organized by the Gallery of Art in Legnica is over. On May 17 and 18 vernissages of all exhibitions organized within the framework of this year's Festival as well as various accompanying events took place. Once again Legnica was a city breathing silver and the streets were full of visitors from all over the country and many corners of the world.

The two-day long jewellery fest began on Friday (May 17) with the inauguration of the Festival in Legnica Market Square. The opening of the exhibition "40 years of SILVER on posters" was announced by the orchestra from the Drum Battle Rhythm Festival and by stilts from the Avatar Theatre.

Festival guests took part in the openings of SILVER exhibitions: Holownia (a show of works not qualified for the 28th International Jewellery Competition and the accompanying exhibition of posters illustrating the title "Silver"), Debuts (jewellery by Aleksandra Szulc), Remains of the Feast (a presentation within the framework of the Silver Schools series of the Romanian Assamblage Association), Amberif Design Award, Interiors - an exhibition of designers from the Chilean Joya Brava Association and the mystical 21 Grams show. The evening ended with a discussion among jewellers, which was a great opportunity to honour and thank Marek Nowaczyk - the man who invented "Silver" in Legnica. Mariusz Pajączkowski, a long-time participant of the Festival and a friend of the Gallery, also received a big thank-you from the organizers.

The second day of the silver marathon (May 18) was devoted to discussions and lectures during the theoretical seminar and openings of other exhibitions of unique jewellery: Presentations. Silver and Amber, historical Handmade. Polish silver art of 1945-1979, the series About the Authors: Jarosław Westermark and Karol Weisslechner.

As always the Festival high point was the announcement of winners of the 28th International Jewellery Competition and the prize-giving ceremony. But before the winners' names were read out there was time for thanks and congratulations. Because of the 40th anniversary, the list of those honoured with symbolic diamonds was exceptionally long. Diplomas and gifts were given to long-term friends and participants of the Festival - artists, benefactors, media and authorities' representatives, institutions, organizations and people who have their share in the organization of this fantastic event.
