The fine and applied arts of Pécs and Baranya became a significant factor in Hungarian art history from the 1960s and 1970s.
As a result of the secondary and higher art education, the quality of the work carried out in the professionally authentic art workshops established in the city and the county, and the diversity of its museums, an art community of national importance has been created that can be measured in an international context.
The artistic community of Pécs almost demanded that the Pécs Municipal Council should create its first exhibition hall for contemporary art in 1977, and then in 1979 the Széchenyi Square exhibition hall was opened. This venue allowed the organisation of larger and diverse events, even with a national impact. It was here that artists and creators from Western and Eastern Europe could meet and exchange information, and the Pécs Gallery became an internationally renowned exhibition and meeting place.
The Pécs Gallery has organised and held exhibitions not only in Pécs, but also in many other countries throughout the country and Europe. Its thematic exhibitions, applied graphics, architecture and design exhibitions have ensured a national and international reputation to this day.
