Lopud Art in June
THE LOPUD COLLECTION Hotels and Villas offers a rich art program this June in Villa Vilina and its ART Restaurant and Gallery on the island of Lopud.
All exhibition openings are accompanied by a guitar performance of Jazz and other types of music by Vedran Mezej of Dubrovnik. Hidden Croatia Marine offers organized trips with their speed boats from Dubrovnik to Lopud and back and include a gourmet dinner in the package.
The art season starts on June 5th with the opening of PARCO, an exhibition of paintings by Petra Ševeljevi?, a young Zagreb born Croatian painter celebrated in the contemporary art circles. This cycle of paintings is thematically connected with parks and specifically emphasized black pine trees. Petra playfully incorporates other elements not connected with the Mediterranean parks themselves.
On June 19th there is the opening VENUS, an exhibition of stone sculptures of different female forms, popularly called Venus’s, by Petar Hranuelli. Petar is an acclaimed Croatian sculptor and painter, born on the island of Brac where stone is “in the blood” of the people.
One June 26th Villa Vilina hosts the opening of a photography exhibition by Sr?an Babi?, a native of Makarska. We have rarely seen such an eye for details and photography as Sr?an has it. You will be inspired to take the camera yourself and try to achieve something similar. Sr?an’s photos are a true work of art.
Aside from the art, every Thursday Villa Vilina organizes Wine Tasting followed by a 3-course lunch, while on Sundays you can enjoy in the Sunday Brunch from 11am till 3pm and indulge in excellent buffet food, Mimosas (Champaign cocktails) and other drinks.
Lopud island and THE LOPUD COLLECTION, the most amazing island escape, awaits you!
