Rezekne House of Art is a one-story wooden building of the last quarter of the 19th century built as a country house of a family of merchants. The facade of the building, like fine lace, is decorated with rich woodcarvings. The house itself is surrounded by a beautiful garden, that will invite for a restful walk.
Once it was the home of the Teachers’ Institute, later - the tuberculosis specialized out-patients center and the military recruitment office; in 1995 it was acquired by the Rezekne Art College. Thanks to the efforts of students and their teachers, the merchant’s mansion has been restored to its original appearance. Now visitors of the House of Art can enjoy the ceiling paintings, magnificent tile stoves, unique parquet flooring and other elements of the luxurious interiors.
The House of Art acquaints the visitors with the exposition “Latgalian painting” from the vaults of the Latgale Culture and History Museum and the paintings of Latgale artists of old and new generation.
Since 2009, the House of Art is a wooden architecture monument of national significance.
