Galerija Lojzeta Spacala
Tel: +386 (0)5 769 00 56
Lojze Spacal has the reputation of being one of the most prominent artists in the post-war Slovene and Italian areas, and an artist of worldwide acclaim. He reached his artistic peak in graphic techniques, mainly in linocut and woodcut. He also used many other techniques: oil, mosaic, tapestry, fresco, and various mixed techniques, for example, a combination of sculpture, relief and painting. He came to be remembered as the artist of Istria and the Karst, because he derived inspiration for his work from these two regions and he interpreted them in his own artistic language.
Since 1988, there is a permanent exhibition of Spacal's artworks in the part of the castle that has been first renewed after second world war destruction. The gallery hosts other temporary art exhibitions as well and it also organizes graphic and other artistic workshops. Cultural events like chamber music concerts and presentations of new literary works also take place in the gallery. The technically equipped hall on the top floor is suitable for conferences and seminars. Since 1997, the Lojze Spacal gallery is also a place for matrimonial ceremonies.
