The “Gallery of Naive Artists” Trebnje

The Gallery of Naive Artists Trebnje has been operating within the public institution CIK Trebnje since 1994, with its origins dating back to 1971. The gallery houses a collection of artworks by naive and self-taught artists, which emerged as a result of activities related to the Naive Artists’ Colony (first organized in 1968). With an extensive collection representing over 320 artists from 50 countries, the gallery regularly organizes exhibitions, lectures, discussions, and presentations. Artworks from the collection have been showcased not only in Slovenia but also in Poland, Slovakia, Italy, Croatia, and Serbia. The gallery, through its colonies, explores contemporary trends in naive art, where artists exhibit their works, create, and exchange ideas during these gatherings.
