Exhibitional project Colours Lacquers under the subheading „contemporary Czech painting from the collection of Richard Adam, Wannieck Gallery Brno“ is taking place at the same time in two Slovak galleries: in Nitra gallery and Gallery of Ján Koniarek in Trnava. It is an unique event at which the biggest display of contemporary Czech painting in Slovakia after the year 1989 is exhibited. In both galleries 30 artists and more than 80 artworks are displayed.

This project presents distinguished names and crucial tendencies in development of Czech painting for the last 25 years. The exhibition displays different programmes, themes and approaches in the media of painting. The figurative themes dominate with the conceptual (J. David, J. Kovanda, V. Skrepl) or expressive (M. Mainer, P. Pastňák, J. Špaňhel) approaches. There is also few abstract (geometrical) works (M. Škoda, J. Šerych, P. Kvíčala) and works that overstep the media of painting and approach the media of relief, object or digital print (F. Matoušek, P. Lysáček, J. Kovanda, J. Surůvka).

In Nitra gallery there is the middle generation presented that has been working from the post-modern tendencies in 80ies of the twentieth century (e.g. D. Balabán, S. Diviš, J. Merta, A. Střížek, I. Vosecký).

In Gallery of Ján Koniarek in Trnava the work of young generation is displayed that started to be famous after 2000 (J. Bolf, J. Černický, J. Hošek, J. Mančuška, T. Vaněk).
