The Canadian Hungarian Heritage Inc. along with the Hungarian Ministry of Human Capacities and the Janus Pannonius Museum of  the Hungarian city of Pecs are presenting an exhibition at the Art Gallery of Alberta in connection with the Hungary: 1956-2016 Cultural Festival in EdmontonIn total, 56 pieces of exquisite Zsolnay porcelain are visiting North America for the first time. Edmonton was selected over other Canadian cities to receive this exhibition because of the comprehensive scale and extensive inclusion of artistic disciplines during our 60th anniversary celebrations. Included in this exhibition are pieces made with the famous “Eosin” technique, which develops a special shine and colour to the pieces by burning following glazing.

The official opening of the exhibition will be by Dr. Peter Hoppal, Secretary of State for Culture, Government of Hungary.
