TrArS in Gornja Jelenska

The project was presented to parishioners and visitors to the parish church of St John the Baptist in Gornja Jelenska on 22 June 2019, just before the feast of this saint.

Discussing a common subject - the two altars by Franz Anton Straub - grew into companionship that went on deep into the night. As fitting for a feast that marks the beginning of summer, when it grew completely dark we were visited by glowworms.

A participant of the TrArS project Dr. Martina Ožanić attributed the altars of the Annunciation and of St Barbara to Franz Anton Straub in 2018.

The gathering in Gornja Jelenska started the cycle of educational and promotional activities called European Baroque in my Homeland: Socializing with the Straub Family Heritage. The Croatian Conservation Institute, the Parish of Gornja Jelenska, the Town of Popovača, the Ivanje Association and the Popovača Tourist Board co-organized the event.
