An overview exhibition of the 40th anniversary of the Association of Artists of Škofja Loka is part of a year-long museum project in 2019. The purpose of the exhibition is to comprehensively present the artistic creativity of the members of the association from its founding to the present. The exhibition emphasizes the importance of ZUŠL members for the cultural and artistic life of Škofja Loka and its surroundings and presents a wide range of their activities. The exhibition includes all
members of the association. 72 artists with more than 140 works of art are represented. We selected two pieces from each author, one earlier and the other later. In our selection we focused on artistic consistency, content persuasiveness and originality. Our goal is not to present the complete oeuvres of the authors, nor to highlight more attractive or monumental works. We emphasize what best reflects the author's artistic development within his own practice. We have placed works of art in
the Castle Gallery, and some, in terms of content, also include permanent collections, a chapel and a museum living room. The curators of the exhibition are Barbara Sterle Vurnik and Boštjan Soklič.
We kindly invite you to the public guided tour of the exhibition Celebrating with us with the curator of the exhibition Biljana Ristić.
At the exhibition, these societies and schools which this year celebrate different anniverries are presented with a brief description of several decades of development, a wide range of activities and events. Through their work and cooperation with the immediate and wider surroundings, they enrich the life of the Diocese of Loka. From its beginnings, in the development, local and international integration, and with numerous successes, in the decades of its activity, they became the constant
and the spiritualus of the cultural and sports beats of Škofja Loka.

In myths and fairy tales, gods love mortals, powerful men love even more powerful women, stupid love smarts, and the knight finds the answer to what a woman wants most. A loving longing overcomes Aphrodite's anger and a woman's anger finds a ladder to hell. With a kiss, a green frog can become a desirable prince and a dumb boy best man. It may be so, we do not know, but we will find out at a fairy tale evening with fairy tales from all over the world how the smart, the powerful, the
beautiful, the ugly and the stupid find sometimes what they want and many times what they need. Humorous, mythical or miraculous love stories from all over the world will connect us to an enjoyable experience.

preserve them for the next generation. The event is being prepared in cooperation with the Škofja Loka Beekeepers' Association.
The stories piled on the slopes of the forest are full of interesting animals, heroes and adventures. We will head to the fairytale forest, sit under a tree and listen to the inhabitants of the forest: squirrels and hedgehogs, bandits, bears, grandfathers, pieces and pieces. Storytelling for children, the kind in which we will be a little scared at times, but sometimes we find it all terribly funny, is narrated by Katja Preša. The event is being co-organized with KD Grable.
The urban beat of Škofja Loka has been vibrant in the past. The rhythm was dictated by trade links, regular weekly fairs, celebrations and a rich guild life. In the centuries of development, various societies have joined the list, bringing together in their ranks people with similar cultural or sporting interests. Societies were increasingly becoming the connective tissue of life in and around the city, which attracted not only locals but also residents of the surrounding areas. Especially in
the second half of the 19th century, in Škofja Loka, the societies inspired, taught, educated, and thus maintained the connection of the townspeople with one another. In their organized form, in addition to socializing, their goal was to educate and educate members and non-members.
