Ján Kulich's talent, awakened at an early age, relied on his living contact with the family traditions, where song and music were the basic essence of life. His talent was continually surrounded by the lively pulsation of traditions in his native Zvolenská Slatina. He grew up in an environment where song, music and tradition were vibrant. There was a lot he didn't need to discover, however, later he ventured alone to the very source to gain much more. It became his need, as well as the content of his search. His work went in different directions and received various social impulses. Although he used various techniques, forms and materials, his attachment to the stimuli of traditions and their representatives became his fate for a full 70 years of creative search.
In 2016 works with a musical theme called Music - its Resonances and Creators were exhibited in the gallery in Zvolenská Slatina.
In addition to portraiture and figural works, depicting the legends of Slovak folk culture today - Rinaldo Oláh, fujara players Martin Sanitrár and uncle Kubinec, bagpiper Michelík and phenomenal choreographer Juraj Kubánka - visitors could also find compositions by musicians from Čierny Balog, Hrochoť and Orava, fujara players, dancers and bagpipe players. There was also a collection of medals created for the anniversaries of the Folklore Festival in Detva, a set of original cast medals for the competition of folk instrument makers, Instrumentum Excellens, as well as many others.

For the first time, a set of cast bronze plaques with portraits of 45 world composers was exhibited, the last completed work by Ján Kulich.
