The heart of the festival will be several exhibitions located in the heart of the city, thanks to which we can discover the latest trends in jewelry, admiring the works of both masters and promising debutants.

One of them is the AMBER 2024 > Other Criteria exhibition organized by the International Amber Association, which you can read more about here.

Classics lovers will certainly be interested in the Silhouettes of Creators, Silver Schools and Debuts exhibitions. Fans of experiments, on the other hand, cannot miss the Holownia presentation - an exhibition of works not qualified for the main competition.

The star of the festival will be Mariko Kusumoto from Japan, who will charm us with her metal and fabric jewelry. On a daily basis, her work can be found in, among others, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. Next to her we will see the works of Petr Machata from Slovakia, who combines metal with plastic, and Mari Ishikawa from Japan, a master of metaphorical jewelry.

Amber in a new version will delight at the exhibition of the International Amber Association, and young artists will present themselves at the exhibitions of the Jewelry Institute of the Academy of Fine Arts in Łódź and Jonatan Poeche.

Technology fans will certainly be interested in the "Computer and jewelry" exhibition, and movie lovers cannot miss SMCK On Reel - a festival of films about jewelry and applied art.

The culmination of the festival will be the awards gala of the 32nd International Jewelery Competition EMPATIA. Nearly 300 artists from 45 countries sent works to Legnica - so it promises to be a real feast for connoisseurs!

The opening weekend of the festival will take place on May 10-11, 2024. Book your time now to immerse yourself in the magical world of jewelry at the Legnica SILVER Festival! The exhibitions will be available to visitors from May to July.
