Great Honour for the Slovenian artist/sculptor from Perth - Ron Gomboc:
He trusted us with the following:
"At the beginning of the year, during the Sculpture by the Sea exhibition a cultural delegation from China visited Perth and were impressed with my sculpture on display at Cottesloe and also visited our gallery sculpture park. Following that visit an invitation was extended to me to represent Australia in these two international cultural events. The first one was The Fourth Silk Road International Arts Festival in Xian, China where there were artists from 103 countries and I was honoured to be the only sculptor representing Australia and see the Australian flag on display.
My sculpture is now represented in the Xian National Gallery Museum Collection.
Following this major event in Xian invitation was extended for my participation in the International Contemporary Art Exhibition in Songyang. Again the only Australian artist. It was an enormous honour for me to see the Australian Flag flying at the official opening of the Songyang Art Gallery where my work was also acquired into their collection. These two events were totally funded by the Chinese Ministry for Culture. An enormous promotion to the world of China’s cultural awareness.

while searching the internet for Slovenian communities, we came across the website of the Slovenians in Australia.
10 years ago, we created a bilingual website (English and German) about the history, culture and traditions of the Slovene minority in Hungary, the goal of which is to inform the descendants of the Slovenians from Hungary around the world (who do not speak Slovenian and Hungarian anymore) about their roots and also to make the Slovene Raba Region of Hungary known all over the world.
We thought you and perhaps the readers of your website might be interested in our website: www.vendvidek.com
Maybe some of the members of the Slovenian Communities in Australia are descendants of Slovenians from Hungary who once emigrated from the Slovene Raba Region to Australia.
Lep pozdrav in vse najboljše!
