Our story

Gallery owner Katarína Janáková has had a career in human resources, working for several corporations where she helped set and manage HR strategies. After that, she went to live in Paris for a year, which is her favourite place.

Her love, however, has long been art. From being an avid gallery-goer during her travels around the world, to collecting contemporary Slovak art, it was just a step to working in a gallery. After spending almost 5 years at the DOT. gallery in Bratislava, she decided to make her dream come true and open her own gallery. She decided to do it in Modra, her hometown, which has always been full of art thanks to its character of a wine town.

We are happy that our gallery offers the best of Slovak art. We change our exhibition schedule approximately every 6-7 weeks. The offer of the gallery is for sale. At the same time, we are dedicated to educating the general public and children in the field of contemporary art. A selection of what we offer can be found in the Artists / Artworks section.

We look forward to welcoming you to our gallery in Modra, Slovakia.
