Mirjana Marović Floors

On Thursday, February 18, at the Josip Račić Studio of the Modern Gallery the exhibition  Floors by the painter Mirjana Marović has been opened. At this, her eighth, solo exhibition, the painter will present to the Zagreb arts world a selection of around thirty acrylics on canvas from the series of the same name.  The motifs of the floors of five majestic churches in Venice made such an impression on Mirjana Marović that more than twenty years later she decided, from her sketches and descriptions, to revive the memory on her canvases.
