Around the Crngrob Church – a Treasure Trove of Frescoes
Crngrobsk' Turn Gallery, Church of the Annunciation in Crngrob
13. 7.–8. 9. 2022
Curator: Nina Misson
The construction of the Church of the Annunciation in Crngrob started in the 13th century, possibly even earlier, the present-day appearance of the church, however, dates back to the 19th century. As early as the Middle Ages, the church was a popular place of pilgrimage and the pilgrims’ substantial donations provided the means for several church enlargements, as well as commissions of a wealth of artworks, including the golden altars and the wall paintings created throughout most of the
building’s history. Some of the wall paintings are well-preserved, others, however, are either difficult to recognise or have even been detached and stored in gallery depots. The exhibition Around the Crngrob Church – a Treasure Trove of Frescoes presents twelve frescoes from different periods, between the late 13th and the mid-19th centuries.
On view: Wednesdays & Sundays from 4.00 to 6.00 pm
