Located in the historic centre of Radovljica, the bourgeois Šivec House from the mid-16th century has been, since 1976, managed by the Radovljica Municipality Museums and dedicated to contemporary visual arts and illustration. The gallery was renovated in 2001 and features from 6 to 10 contemporary visual arts exhibitions annually. The presented painters and sculptors are often inspired in handicrafts. As the Šivec House Art Gallery is engaged in the research and popularisation of Slovene illustration, the works by contemporary Slovene illustrators are regularly presented here, most recently by Matjaž Schmidt, Daša Simčič, and Zvonko Čoh. Since 2003 the municipal collection of the children and youth illustrations by 34 Slovene artists is on a permanent display offering thus the only chance to explore the tradition and development of illustration art in Slovenia.


Architecture

With its rich outer and interior architectural appearance, the Šivec House is an outstanding example of late Gothic architecture. Following its restoration, all of its original beauty has been revealed: the façade with its frescoes and exquisitely-designed detailing; the interior with its colonnaded entrance hall on the ground floor and smoke kitchen, granary and representative living quarters on the first floor. The room is used as a Wedding Hall and the colonnaded entrance hall is used as an art gallery.
