Tarpon Springs Cultural Center features Kerasia Aravanopoulou January 4, 2007

Posted by grhomeboy in Hellenic Light Americas.

“Colors of Greece” by Kerasia Aravanopoulou is on display at the Tarpon Springs Cultural Center through February 28.

Born and raised in Volos, Greece, Aravanopoulou earned a degree in Tourism Management from the School of Management and Economics in Larissa, Greece.

A multi-faceted artist, she is equally occupied with music, specifically singing, as with painting. She also studied at the School of Fine Arts at New York University: drawing at the Met of the Metropolitan Museum of Art with instructor Meera Thompson and painting with instructor Betty Tomkins.

Her works reflect the physical simplicity of the subject as much as the simplicity of the artist herself. There is no room for “misunderstandings” in her landscapes, full of clarity, color, and light. Balanced, detailed, and at the same time, light and playful visions of a place that has and continues to leave its mark on people’s lives.

The exhibit is open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Saturdays noon to 4 p.m. Admission is free.

The Tarpon Springs Cultural Center is at 101 South Pinellas Ave. Call 727-942-5605.
