The building richly decorated in wood carvings was built in the end of the 19th century in the eclectic style as a merchant’s mansion. Later, it hosted a teachers institute, school, tuberculosis health centre and war commissariat until 1995 when it was acquired by the Rezekne Art and Design Secondary School. As a result of students and teachers’ work, the building regained its initial exterior, and today visitors can enjoy ceiling paintings, richly decorated tile stoves and unique parquet flooring at the House of Arts.
Here, the richly decorated premises host the exposition Latgalian Panting from the collection of the Latgale Culture and History Museum that allows to familiarise with works of both Latgalian old masters and new generation artists.
