THREE of a Nice Pair is an exhibition of paintings by Ivan Csudai, Stanislav Diviš and Laco Teren. In 1999, the three authors came out with an idea to paint a mutual painting. Diviš did the background, Teren continued, and Csudai put on the final touches. Pleasantly surprised by the outcome, the trio created a whole series consisting of 24 paintings, sometimes dominated by mood, sometimes by story. The display currently runs at Považská galéria (Považie Gallery) on Štefánikova 2, Žilina, until September 14. Open: Mon-Fri 9:00-17:00, Sat-Sun 10:00-17:00. Admission: Sk20. Tel: 041/5622-415.
