The Piran Coastal Galleries have been operating in the field of fine arts for more than thirty years. One needs to especially stress their activities in exhibition facilities (the Loža and Meduza Galleries in Koper, the Town Gallery and Meduza 2 Gallery in Piran), where numerous exhibitions of renewed local and foreign artists take place. The Meduza Gallery in Koper is also a showroom with a rich selection of contemporary art from Slovenian artists for sale. The Piran Coastal Galleries care for the permanent collection of Slovenian art and have been supplementing it constantly. In addition, the Piran Coastal Galleries manage the permanent collection at the Herman Pečarič Gallery in Piran and are also responsible for the gallery’s programme. Among other things they are the organizer of international events such as the Forma Viva biennial symposium of sculptors (organisation, acquisition of new sculptures, presentations, setting up), Piran Days of Architecture, Ex-tempore Piran (painting, ceramic, and the artistic workshops Genius loci Lera). With its operation and programme the Coastal Galleries have also made their way abroad, especially with the A+A Gallery, which began in Madrid and has been successfully operating in Venice since 1998.
