About
Jaksic Gallery in Split was opened in 2014, as a logical sequence to first gallery on Brac, which exists for 8 years. Gallery has a family character and it presents only the work of members of Jaksic family whose artistic tradition has existed for 113 years. A considerable number of stone sculptures, made by academic sculptor Lovre Jaksic, is exposed in the gallery. So are the paintings of dr.art Dina Jaksic, Lovre’s sister, and jewelry made of semiprecious stones combined with silver, which is designed and manufactured by their mother Ida Stipcic Jaksic, while the gallery itself is located in the business premises of the Sister of Charity Monastery, one of the greatest works of their father, a stonemason Drazen Jaksic. In the gallery you can also find numerous everyday items made of Brac stone, and stone designed furniture.

Cannot say enough great things about this gallery. The talent in jewelry, paintings and sculpture is incredible. Purchased a sculpture for our home in Tucson AZ and it is truly just perfect. Thank you Ivana!!! Highly recommended.

Nice and small gallery. After seeing their work in Donji Humac on the island of Brač. We decided to buy some souvenirs for our trip to croatia. Their art is definitely better than anything found in the small shops in Split ;)

This is a gallery where one can by artworks done in Brac marble. Brac marble is the one which was used in construction of UN building in New York. Mrs Jakšić is talented designer. Here you can buy really worthy original Artworks and take it as a nice souvenirs.

Not worth a visit. The entire attraction consisted of a small room with a few items. Items of this quality can easily be found in well-stocked shops.

Dear Ukristia, we are sad that you didn't like our gallery, but maybe you are thinking about other gallery because our space is one of the biggest private galleries in Split and definitely the biggest in island Brač. And we are not sure if well-stocked shops have big sculpture made of stone.

One day I hope to take home some of the bigger pieces from this gallery :-) They were just too big for my carry-on. For now, I am content with a few souvenirs. I purchased a few of the beautiful stone flowers and some really distinctive jewelry. Tough to choose!

I was also pleasantly surprised to able to order a 'original penkal' stone set from home! It was mailed directly and made a unique thank you gift for work.

not too easy to find ... but a real jewel as regards art ... sculpture and painting ... especially bright colors of abstract paintings ... mainly recommendations to see, and buy if you are a fan or collector ...
ps All the works are from the same family from the island of Brac

Worth a stop - beautiful and interesting work
Sep. 2015
We went to this gallery in Split and also had the opportunity to go to Broc and see the gallery and studios there. There is really nice work from jewelry, sculpture, and paintings all done by members of the family. It was really interesting to hear about the family from the staff at the gallery which made me want to seek out going to Broc to see the studios. It is not a large gallery but worth the visit to see this unique family's art.
