For the fifth time in a row, on Saturday, November 30, 2019, we warmly invite you to the opening of the exhibition Windows of Imagination in the Old Town of Škofja Loka. The festive gathering at the 2019 Windows of the Imagination will begin at 6 pm in front of the Ivan Grohar Gallery, when we, together with the narrator Karla B. Rihtaršič, set out to discover imaginative exhibitions and exhibitions by the Škofja Loka creators. Join us on this first walk through the Showcase of the
Imagination and take part in our raffle at the same time!
So familiar and told over and over again, the interlace of romantic and tragic stories. But in the stories that narrators Renata Lapanja and Andrea Pandolfo will introduce to us, love and death are not like those of Shakespeare, nor of those who claim to be always in pairs and inseparable. The authors do not meet them in a way that they call them mere elemental forces, instead they see them as an everyday component of life, something that accompanies and guides every human being,
something that is in principle always present but not necessarily all-encompassing. They tell people's stories of love and death directly, simply and honestly.
This year, on the occasion of the 80th anniversary of the Škofja Loka Museum, the study circle focuses on exploring the museum workers that worked here in the past. The circle is led by curator Biljana Ristić. The study circle is an open-ended study group, and everyone who is interested in the topic presented is invited to participate and is ready to devote some of their time to research under the mentorship of Biljana Ristić.
Once a month, we meet at the Ivan Grohar Gallery, where we listen to the story tellers. This time we will listen to the fairy tales that Katja Pinter Željko, a librarian, story-lover, has gathered for us. She has been narrating ever since she started to work at he library. She says good stories enrich us. Together with her we will embark on a journey into the world of fairy tales and discover what fairy tales, dragons, princesses, tigers and kings with dirty feet have to say to us.
The event is being prepared in collaboration with the Grable Cultural Society.
On November 22, the Breja preja Knitting Community invites you to the opening of the exhibition My Knit Color Pallet: Travels, inspired by trips of all kinds - from dream and long distance to trips not far away. Until November 29, the exhibition will be on display in the Museum Living Room of the Škofja Loka Museum.
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.
The first of the concerts of this year's Loka da Camera Festival invites top chamber musicians into its midst. During the break there will be a guided tour of the Škofja Loka Museum. The program will feature works by N. Paganini, F. Carulli, J. S. Bach and A. Vivaldi.
