|Ha napfényes Vízkereszt |

Gross Arnold and his Fairyland
Gross Arnold: Birds and Angels
The first time I heard of Gross Arnold was when I received two of his etchings as a wedding gift from my landlady, Fehér Ilonka néni in 1965. By that time, he was a famous graphic artist with a Munkácsy Prize. On his 90th birthday, December 6th, 2019, his biggest exhibit opened in Budapest. I wish I could be there to enjoy the beauty of his works.

Hövej coat of arms
I visited Hövej in 2013 to see the Szigethy Istvánné’s lace exhibit at the Faluház (Village House) and the Village Museum. Since then, Mrs. Szigethy’s museum moved to nearby Hegykő where one can see the handiwork of her lifetime, which she began to create as a young girl and which she continues to make to this day. Still, the small village of Hövej comes to my mind often. See the full story...
