On Sunday 11th July I was on the first exhibition in my life. It was a small local exhibition called Master and Margarita. There could be seen works of art of my aunt Małgorzata Chebel and her two friends Katarzyna Stawerska-Kula and Jarosław Kula.
Sorry for the crappy pictures but the room was really small and there were a lot of people inside so I had little time to take the photographs. There are less pictures of Master’s works because I didn’t managed to do more and my aunts works had a priority, I hope you understand ;)
