The first retrospective exhibition of the work of the conceptualist, draughtsman and graphic designer František Steker (*5 March 1949) will be held on the occasion of his life milestone. The exhibition will present the artist's work from the 1980s to the present in a comprehensive way, in the variety of media used and the uniqueness of his artistic approach, in order to make clear Steker's contribution to the field of conceptual drawing in the overall context of contemporary Czech art. The exhibition will also include works from the gallery's collections. František Steker's works have a spiritual dimension, which is achieved through the artist's artistic discipline and restrained expression.

František Steker, who lives and works in Ostrov, is a prominent figure in the field of graphic design; he founded this field at the SUPŠ in Karlovy Vary and also at the Sutnar Faculty, where he has been the head of the Graphic Design and Visual Communication Studio for many years. 

The exhibition project was supported by the Ladislav Sutnar Faculty of Design and Art of the UWB in Pilsen and by the town of Ostrov.
