Women Painters’ House in Zalipie
It gathers local women artists who cultivate the custom of painting floral motifs on houses. In order to keep the tradition alive, the Women Painters’ House organises, along with the District Museum in Tarnow, a competition named ‘The Painted Cottage’ Among all folk art competitions in Poland, this one has been held for the longest time. It was organised for the first time in 1948, although it was not a cyclical event at the beginning. Within the framework of the competition, a commission appointed by the organiser visits the painted houses during the weekend following the Corpus Christi holiday, to announce the results on Sunday. It is a great day in Zalipie, culminating in the ‘Zalipie festival’.
