SLOART Gallery and Auction house is the leading sales gallery in Slovenia, which has existed on the art market since 2010. It is an important place for many artists, collectors, galleries, museums, educational institutions and art lovers, as they can buy, rent, sell or research the best Slovene works of art. The gallery also offers its clients a wide range of services, from art appraisals, art collection management, various art programmes to furnishing of premises, etc.
It is a member of the Slovenian society of Art dealers and Antiquarians. SLOART Gallery was originally formed as an online gallery, but in September 2019 it also acquired a physical space, Gallery Y, an exhibition and sales gallery for contemporary art, which has been operating as a SLOART Gallery project since 2015. Gallery Y was opened with the aim of strengthening the Slovene art market of contemporary Slovene fine arts; until 2025, for example, it will represent ten selected promising contemporary Slovene artists of the younger and middle generation. But the online activities of the SLOART Gallery – the presentation of the art offer, the prices of works of art, the possibility of online purchase of works of art, the presentation of artists, the collectors’ club, etc. – remain an important part of its work.
