Aurél Bernáth Gallery - Marcali
Aurél Bernáth Gallery
Address: 8700, Marcali Kossuth Lajos utca 25.
Phone number: (85) 510-448
Opening hours: Mon-Wed 9-13, Thu-Fri 14-18
The Bernáth Aurél Gallery can be visited in Marcali, Somogy county. The Gallery was built near the house of painter Aurél Bernáth. There is a park around the building. That is where the bust of Bernáth made by Pál Pátzay stands.

The Bernáth Aurél Memorial Museum had used to belong under the supervision of the Somogy county government till 1990. In those times the permanent exhibition of Bernáth Aurél was seen on the ground floor and the small hall of the first floor. In 1990 the museum was transferred to the ownership of the town, and since then the works of the master have only been seen in his memorial room.

The institute arranges 7 to 8 temporal exhibitions every year. During the past few years the Gallery gave place to several large exhibitions. The former students of Aurél Bernáth were also introduced: (such as Tibor Csernus, István Mácsai, Ignác Kokas, Katalin Sylvester, Margit Bárdy, János Miklós Kádár, Gizella Péterffy etc.)

It has always been the main purpose of temporal exhibitions to show our visitors a wide variety of techniques used by the artists. The paintings of Endre Szász, the gobelins of Zsuzsa Péreli and Rózsa Polgár, and the graphics of Arnold Gross highly attract our visitors.

At the arrangement of our exhibitions of 2000 and 2001 we endevoured to represent the works of artists living or coming from Marcali.

For technical reasons our Gallery is closed between the temporal exhibitions. At such times the Bernáth Memorial Room cannot be visited, either.
