The exhibition programme of the Coastal Galleries combines review exhibitions of work by representatives of the middle generation of Slovene artists, individual exhibitions of work by young artists, and retrospective exhibitions of work by the leading artists from Primorska and Slovenia. By preparing of mostly group exhibitions Obalne galerije cooperate with other similar national and international institutions.
For many years the Coastal Galleries have also closely and actively followed international art trends by presenting work by leading foreign artists and organising well-established traditional events like the Forma Viva Open Air Stone Sculpture Collection, Seča, the Piran Days of Architecture and the Ex-tempore Piran - International Painting and Ceramics.
Concurrently with their dynamic exhibition activities, the Coastal Galleries are gradually forming art collections which directly reflect their programming concepts and are presented to the public in the form of occasional exhibitions, for example the collections Contemporary Slovene Visual Art after 1976, Awarded Works from the International Painters' Ex-tempore and Visual Artists from Primorska. The most well-known collection is the Forma Viva Open Air Stone Sculpture Collection, Seča.
