On the occasion of the 45th anniversary of the artistic work of Labin native painter Vinko Šaina, a monographic exhibition set to open on 22 September at Labin Town Gallery, Labin Museum and Alvona Gallery will present the rich opus of this artist, perpetually inspired by the beauty of his hometown scenery. One of the most prominent local painters had his artworks exhibited in Croatia and abroad, and is also known as the founder of Alvona Gallery at the church of Our Lady of Carmel in Labin Old town. After the reconstruction and restoration of this sacral object, registered as culture monument, from 1993 Alvona Gallery has grown into a must-see art and performance point in Istria, with Šaina\'s colorful Labin and Rabac horizons becoming the recognizable symbols of Labin.
