Why Neka Art Museum is special ?

The Neka Art Museum was opened in 1982 and is named after a Balinese teacher Suteja Neka who collected paintings as a means of artistic documentation. Nowadays the museum has a great selection of works from many famous Balinese artists and expats who have lived here and influenced local artists.

The Neka Art Museum collection is displayed in several buildings patterned after Balinese architecture. The main structures are for the permanent display of the government registered collection. Another building is used for temporary exhibitions. The Neka Art Museum has achieved high standards as a museum of international standing. By July of 1997 it covered an area of 9150 square metres, with 2580 square meters of floor space. The buildings are well maintained and the artworks are displayed and organized historically. The collection continues to grow over the years with over three - hundred pieces.

It was a lovely, quiet serene and quite large gallery in the middle of Ubud. I just loved it. It had a large selection and variety of excellent art from many fine Balinese painters ( mainly). Of course the whole building had wonderful carvings which is common to most Balinese buidlings. I would like to have spent more time there and well as other galleries. Ubud is such a busy place that this was a real oasis of genuine Bali with no one trying to sell you anything.
