About Us

Artistic experience is an experience of true, unfleeting beauty which releases our everyday darkness and makes it shiny and beautiful.

On the hill above a mine, in the light that always comes after darkness, a small artistic republic sprouted in the 1960s. This Republic, where the only currency was art and beauty, brought forth a respectable number of “creators of beauty” called the Labinski Atelieri (the Labin Ateliers). The rest is history...


We invite you to visit us in the beautiful ambience of the old city of Labin, far from the crowds and stress of the city.

"Artists are ingenious creators of beauty called to listen to the secret laws of the universe and to follow them because they will help man to arrive at true humanity." (John Paul II, "From the Letter to Artists", 2005).

 

A summary of completed projects over the years: over 100 exhibits, more than 120 artists, foreign collaboration with Italian and Austrian artists, art critics and galleries.

 

The gallery’s profile is therefore not strictly defined and as such represents artistic expressions of various poetics and approaches.

Vinko Šaina

Vinko Šaina

The power of will and vision, energy which is directed to true things and values can be recognised not only in naked facts from the author's biography or in the details of the construction heritage of Labin's Art Republic; instead this is all, in the same manner and to the same extent authenticity present in his landscape paintings with an Icarus-like perspective of the clear and nostalgic endless horizon which widens in expanse as a clear and open vision of man’s smallness and temporary time on this colourful artistic globe between eternity and historical permanence. "If the phrase man is style still has the same meaning or weight today, then in the case of Vinko Šaina it finds its fulfilment".

Vedran Šilipetar – „Naslovna slika kataloga, po mojem je skromnom mišljenju, ponajbolji primjer stapanja pejzažnog imaginarija i crtačkih afiniteta u skladnu cjelinu koja po svim parametrima struke može parirati ili se u najmanju ruku kretati u smjeru umjetnosti primjerice portugalske slikarice Marie Helene Vieira da Silva. Duboko vjerujem da je novi likovni put labinske autorice naznačen upravo u toj slici te da će ukoliko bude i dalje ustrajala u radu u skoroj budućnosti osvanuti još smjelija, a u stručnom kontekstu i zrelija rješenja. Izložba u prestižnoj galeriji Alvona zasigurno je tek početak jedne fantastične likovne priče i nadasve autoričinog (sa)zrije(va)nja. Iz tog razloga treba joj iskreno čestitati na ustrajnosti i entuzijazmu.“   

Izložbeni program Galerije Alvona 2018. realiziran je uz potporu Grada Labina i Ministarstva kulture RH.
