Kovacica is in Serbia, but there live Slovak peopl, who left 250 years ago to work in a "good country" and have been growing corn until now. During the warm months they cultivated land and during the winter evenings nostalgia for home led them to paint. They painted naively. As they knew, not as they saw. The naive art of Kovacica is well known in the world.
A friend and naive painter Ján Glozik organised a two-day event in the Gallery of Naive Art (Galerija naivne umetnosti) in Kovacica, during which came to paint not only naive artists, but also other various people. The collection of naive pictures will expand and we believe that other naive artists will also be involved in the project.
