Slovenian Film about International Meeting of Naïve Artists in Trebnje

We are happy to share the message from Trebnje Gallery of Naïve Artists in Slovenia:

“Last year our Gallery celebrated a jubilee, half a century of International Meetings of Naive Artists. For this occasion we planned a film and asked all of you for your help in preparing it.

Slovenian television broadcasted the film in December 2017 and now the film is publicly available on our website:

We hope you will enjoy it, even though it is in Slovenian only.”
