Vale Council marks holocaust memorial day with new exhibition

An exhibition to commemorate this year’s Holocaust Memorial Day is now on display at Barry’s Art Central.

Artists Michal Iwanowski and Thairien King have created ‘The Power of Words’ and shown how words can impact, influence and make a difference to our lives.

This year’s ‘The Power of Words’ theme was taken from the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust who promote the event nationally.

Michal Iwanowski created the ‘Clear of People’ collection, which shows the journey that was made by the artist’s Grandfather and Great Uncle as they walked over 2000 Kilometres from Russia to Poland in 1945.

The display opened on Saturday 21 January and will run until Saturday 24 February.

An artist talk on the exhibition, will take place on Holocaust Memorial Day which falls on Saturday 27 January at 11.00am.
