Amateur art painting has a rich tradition in Upper Silesia. One of the greatest artists was Ludwik Holesz (died in 1999), whose paintings can be found in numerous domestic and foreign collections. Every day, he worked as a miner in the mine "Moszczenica", and in his spare time he painted original pictures. You can see them in the gallery, which was opened in the family home of Ludwig Holesz in Świerklany, in 1986. His wife, daughter and grandson also deal with art.
