Hadjikyriakos-Ghika exhibition at City of Athens Art Gallery December 3, 2006

Posted by grhomeboy in Arts Events Greece, Arts Exhibitions Greece.

An exhibition entitled “Ghika: Landscapes and Interiors”, which opened on November 29, at the City of Athens Art Gallery marks the conclusion of a tribute honouring the 100 years since the birth of esteemed Greek artist Nikos Hadjikyriakos-Ghika (1906-1994).

Forty-two paintings, 70 sketches, 15 gravures and 18 silk-screens make up the exhibition, which presents characteristic Ghika works, the laborious procedures involved, exterior influences, his flair for design and engraving skills.

The exhibition is being organised in association with the Benaki Museum’s Ghika Art Gallery, from which the majority of the works were lent, while contributions also came from the National Gallery, the National Bank Educational Foundation and private collectors. City of Athens Art Gallery and Museums director Nelly Kyriazi is the curator of the exhibition, while Salomi Papadopoulou oversaw the accompanying special publication.
The exhibition is open November 29, 2006 through January 29, 2007, at the City of Athens Art Gallery, 51 Pireos Street, Koumoundourou Square. Open 9:00-13:00 and 17:00-21:00, except for Saturday and Sunday evenings. For further information, call 210  3231841. Student group visits: 210 3313038, 210 3240472.
