Mother Gallery, Ljubuški

Mother Gallery, Ljubuški

The collection of artwork with its permanent exhibition called "Mother" was opened on the Mother's Day, in May 8th, 2004 in the Gallery of monastery in Humac in Ljubuški. The idea of establishing the collection comes from two Franciscan priests – Fr Ljudevit Rupčić and Fr Viktor Nuić.

The cloister of the monastery is the entrance to the Gallery with seven exhibitions. The name of the authors and the titles written in Croatian and English are emphasized with every exhibited piece of art. The collection has approximately 300 works of art, 140 of which are sculptures in various materials, and the rest are paintings, drawings and prints. The main motive for the creation and presentation of this collection to the public is to pay respect to a woman - a mother, and to deepen the sense of motherhood. The criticism of this collection should not only be preceded from the artistic value of some of the exhibits, but from the message that it gives as a whole.
