LABIN HORIZONS OF LIGHT

Once upon a time the Celts named Labin Albuin - a place on the hill where the light is born.  Endless horizons stretching from the town walls of the old part of Labin today are limitless motives of artistic inspiration for the local artist Vinko Šaina. On 'the hill where the light is born’ one of the most famous Labin artists opened his studio and restored a picturesque church of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, which was turned into art gallery Alvona. Award-winning artist Šaina light horizons blue of the sea, pearly Rabac beaches and endless sky skillfully combines into surrealistic and colorful artwork.  To audiences in Europe the beauty of Labin horizons will be introduced on September 9th at the Gallery Centrum in Graz (Austria), presenting Šaina’s exhibition  ‘Light Planetarium’.
