The principal gallery of the Obalne galerije - Coastal Galleries network, Piran City Gallery is the most important exhibition spaces on the Slovene coast. It plays an important role in presenting modern and contemporary art and was totally renovated in 2012 by the architect Boris Podrecca. Piran City Gallery prepares approximately 6 exhibitions annually, out of which the summer exhibition is reserved as the main location of the painting section of the Ex-tempore Piran - International Painting and Ceramics.


Piran City Gallery, located on Tartini Square in Piran, as a rule combines its programme with other venues of the Coastal Galleries, it cooperates as well with other national and international institutions. In 2009 an exhibition of paintings, gouaches and drawings of the great Slovene painter Zoran Mušič (1909–2005), marking the centenary of his birth, was prepared in the cooperation with the collector Igor Lah, Cortini Gallery from Venice and the Museum of Modern Art. The same year Piran City Gallery gave the podium to the presentation of works by Slovene authors from the Riko Art Collection, following its programme policy of presenting established Slovene artists. In 2008 the gallery featured the exhibition The Artist and the Computer about Eduard Zajec, one of the world pioneers of computer arts, who has Slovene roots. The exhibition was curated by Vasja Nagy and Breda Škrjanec as a derivation of his retrospective prepared in the International Centre of Graphic Arts, Ljubljana.
