With more than forty exhibitions worldwide to his credit, Sacha Beres doesn’t have to prove anything to the art world anymore. Yet he’ll be leaving his Lewiston home once again in September to travel to his homeland, Poland, for a one-person show in the prestigious “Galeria Test.” (The Galeria Test is a fifty-year plus exhibit hall and home to the best art exhibition space in Warsaw, Poland.)

Well known particularly in European art circles Sacha held his first exhibition in Warsaw in 1967. His studies at the Academy of Fine Arts in Cracow, Katowice and Wroclaw, Poland provided the background necessary to develop his abstract style. His works are demonstrated in a range of mediums: painting, drawing, printmaking, collage, industrial design, designs for the stage and overall city design. His works are housed in several museums privately, publicly and corporately throughout Europe, Israel, the Bahamas and North America.

Art critics have described his work as “highly poetic” and “lyrical” in style. His works were recently on display locally, in conjunction with the Polish Arts Club of Buffalo.
