We started the summer, two-day (June 16 – 17, 2018) meeting of the Club members in the Beskidy Mountains, in the Kukuczka Gallery, at the junction of three borders of neighbouring countries: Poland, the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
The owner of the Gallery, a patron of culture and art, Jan Kukuczka, greeted the guests and presented the agenda of the meeting.
Krzysztof Radziwiłł, who was present at the meeting, gave the host his ancestral prince’s medal in recognition of his outstanding achievements in the field of patronage and promotion of culture and art at the national and international level.
After the official part, Jan Kukuczka guided the guests around the Gallery, presenting works of exhibited artists and gave a lecture about the role and importance of art in the life of modern man.
After the presentation, we listened to a concert by an artist from Ukraine, Krystyna Dutczak, and a highlander band.
After the refreshments in the Gallery, we moved to the nearby “Szarotka” Holiday House, where we discussed during a tasty dinner the plans related to the development of the club activities.
After breakfast, on the second day of the meeting, some of the Club members were exploring the Beskidy Mountains in the company of an excellent guide, who turned out to be Jan Kukuczka – the highlander of flesh and blood, whose mischievous humour and parables articulated in a Highlander dialect gave the trip an unforgettable atmosphere. A common dinner and exchange of opinions about the meeting contributed to nice impressions from the ceremony.
