Review: National Gallery of Macedonia

There are rare artistic institutions where I just like everything that is within the walls.  The Anderson Contemporary Arts Museum in Roswell, NM, leaps to mind, as well as the Mesa Arts Center where I also happen to teach classes.  These institutions are examples where quality meets craft minus the pretension.  This May I was fortunate enough to find another museum that inspired me with its collection:  the National Gallery of Macedonia.

Founded in 1948, it’s located in a downtown Skopje building that used to be a Turkish Bathhouse dating to the 15th century.  It’s also the first museum I’ve been in where the attendant tells us he’s locking us in so he can run and get a sandwich.  Ah, Macedonia.
