Contemporary Exhibitions

As an organiser of cultural events, particularly occasional exhibitions, the Museum is one of the central cultural institutions in the Idrija-Cerkno region. Its occasional exhibitions are most often thematically linked to fine art and photography, or are the result of the efforts of our museum experts. For several years, the Cerkno Museum has prepared its exhibitions in collaboration with the Cerkno Photo Club. Two or three photographic exhibitions are organised each year under the title Our Photographic Horizons, and an exhibition entitled Carnival Mask is held biannually. The Museum also collaborates on a regular basis with the Marjetica Lacemakers' Section from Cerkno, which has held its annual exhibitions in the Museum since 2000. Also linked to the programme of exhibition activities is a programme of art and museum workshops for children and youth.
