Polish-commemorative fountain pens on show
Over 70 fountain pens dedicated to Poland, Poles and Polish events, some made of silver or amber, others engraved or decorated with precious materials, are being exhibited in the Marshal Jozef Pilsudski Provincial and Municipal Public Library in Lodz, central Poland. The exhibition, entitled "From Gallus Anonymus to contemporary times - Poland described by fountain pen" is the result of the collectors passion of surgeon Prof. Andrzej Papiewski, who has been collecting fountain pens for over 20 years.   "Some of them can be regarded as real works of art," said Elzbieta Domagalska, manager of the librarys special collections department.   The exhibition presents 76 fountain pens from various companies, mostly limited editions. What makes each item unique is the diversity of forms and materials used for their production, but their main attraction is their dedication to Poland.   Poland is the main motto of the collection. As such, pens made by recognized Polish and global companies and dedicated to famous Poles or historical Polish events, are available to view.   Pope John Paul II is the figure to which pens are most frequently dedicated. In addition, the exhibition presents items dedicated to famous Poles in the areas of culture, the arts, science and politics, including Copernicus, Maria Curie, Jozef Pilsudski, Tadeusz Kosciuszko and Lech Walesa.   Among the fountain pens that certainly deserve attention is that dedicated to Fryderyk Chopin. The exhibit was made on the occasion of the 200th anniversary of the composers birth.   The exhibition opened on April 12 and can be viewed until May 7. (PAP) mp/ej

2018 WAFCA Winners
2018 WAFCA Winners

As a film critic of medium-low importance, one of my most sacred duties is participating in the Washington Area Film Critics Association (WAFCA) year-end awards extravaganza. During this hallowed time of year, I watch dozens of movies and mine my own recollection of the good, the bad, and the ugly to determine what, precisely, the best films of the year were. At the end of this grueling process—this death march through endless stacks of DVDs, searching for the rarest pearl in an ever-increasing sea of muck—we WAFCA members nominate up to five films/people in each category. The five films/people who earn the most votes in every category are then voted upon by the whole of the membership, the winners are chosen, the press release is sent out, and blessed, blessed relief descends upon us as we put the exercise to rest for 11 months.
