Karl D. Geissbuehler has an exhibition of his theater posters for the Opernhaus Zuerich, Switzerland, from February 2 to July 9, 2005 at the Hochschule fuer Musik und Theater, Florhofgasse 6, 8001 Zuerich (CH).
The poster on the cover of the catalogue is for the opera "The silent woman" by Richard Strauss.
Ronald Curchod's web site has a new address http://www.ronald-curchod.net, and this is one of his newest posters, for a street festival in Ramonville (FR).
Krzysztof Dydo, the well know polish poster collector, dealer, author and exhibition organizer has an eye for new talents, and also supports the young designers by giving them comissions for posters for his Galeria Plakatu in the center of Cracow, Poland. He writes "My last posters were made almost exclusively by young students of Roman Kalarus, also this one by Aleksandra Naparlo "Ksana" from Katowice."
Kalarus, a professor at the Academy of Fine Arts in Katowice, is a master of erotic posters and art, but also a close collaborator of the Archdiocesan Museum in Katowice, and has painted sacred pictures in several polish churches. He too was one of the artists discovered and pushed by Dydo.
I'm glad Roman Kalarus has obviously communicated his joy of life so well to his students and am looking forward to see more of their work. The lady in the picture is one of Krzysztof's customers looking for posters in his shop (I think).
