Cultural diversity in Rosegg

Gallery Šikoronja

The Šikoronja Gallery in Rosegg is already 35 years old this year: the anniversary of a permanent cultural hospitality and border crossing.

This house carries everything within it: the river, the alluvial forests, the Karawanken, the drifting clouds, the borders, the history, the transformations of the people. Everything that has ever touched the house is stored. For more than three decades, it has also been above all art.

From 01 to 31 August 2011, the exhibition of the paintings created in the summer painting school with the artist Günther Schifko took place. The paintings could be viewed during opening hours at the Rosegg municipal office.

From 03 February 2011 until 31 March 2011, the exhibition of the Painting school with the artist Günter Schifko of the pictures that were created. The pictures could be viewed during opening hours at the market town office in Rosegg.

The presentation of the paintings from the painting school with Günter Schifko in 2011 took place on 24 February 2011 from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the market town hall in Rosegg.

Once or twice a year, the artist Schifko comes to Rosegg and shares valuable tips and tricks of his painting. He introduces the participants to new painting techniques, or he helps to refresh already acquired knowledge.
