Sinite parvulos! Father Anton Vindišar Art Collection

26. 08. 2016 – 02. 10. 2016

Anton Vindišar, who was a priest in Kostanjevica na Krki in the period 1964-1971, understood that the identity of the place and the relationship with the people has to be built on the piety of the significant and grand ancestors. During his period in the parish the concerts organised by the Dolenjska Cultural Festival were taking place in the church. That is also reflected in his collection of art works which was not based on expertise criteria but it was rather an expression of friendly affection towards artists, friends and acquaintances. Those were mostly people whom he met in Kostanjevica na Krki and among them there are artists such as Tomaž Kvas, Stane Kregar, Rafaela Potokar, Rudi Simčič, France Gorše, Lojze Perko, France Godec, Wolfgang Kogler, Stane Jarm and Peter Jovanovič. The most prominent works in the collection are those that are related to the collections of the Božidar Jakac Art Museum, among others works of Tone and France Kralj. Even when Vindišar was transferred to a new post he maintained contacts with many of those artists.

In 2015 the Božidar Jakac Art Museum signed a donation document with the heirs of late Anton Vindišar and thus acquired fifty art works for the permanent collection. Some were placed in the Collection of the Gorjup Gallery, in the primary school of Jože Gorjup in Kostanjevica na Krki, however, the entire donation is presented at this exhibition together with the catalogue.
