Artists in residence at Apothiki Art Center - July & September 2011

From 18 to 24 of July, the Apothiki Art Center in the Kastro of
Parikia welcomes 10 young jewellers as artists in residence,
organising a workshop and developing contemporary Greek jewellery
inspired by the artistic history and the beauty of our island.

The participating artists will be contemplating on three landmarks of
Paros island:

The Ekantotapyliani Church which has been a spiritual location for
centuries. As a church built on an ancient temple it also hosts
symbols representing universal ideas.

The Kastro which dates from the Venetian occupation of the island as
is orgginally built to serve as ‘walls’ and is constructed from
marble that were parts of different contructions.

Kolimbritis as a striking natural landscape with rocks malted by wind
and water for uncountable years.

The artists will work on these sites and show the results at the
Apothiki between July 22 and 24. Between July 18 and 22, visitors
will be able to view more recent work from the artists in an
exhibition ‘Sea, Sun, Sky’. The show will be combined with a
jewellery workshop and will be open from 12.00 till midnight.
Participating artists: Kelly Arnaoutaki, Anna Konstanti, Erato, Eleni
Ioannidi, Eleni Maria Kyriazi, Margarita Meitani, Nenetta Spanou,
Artemis Valsamaki, Stavros Vlachos and Marina Zachou.


From 5 September (till 30), the New Zealand Artist Paul Radford will
be working in the Apothiki and on Paros island. Paul’s work has been
inspired for many years by Cycladic art. He has been creating
sculptures and paintings symbolising the beauty of this creativity
that is so exceptional and symbolises the dynamics of our islands
more than 4000 years ago.

Paul will be working on site and with ‘open doors’. You will be
able to see the artist at work in the Apothiki and an artist talk
will be held. Dates to be announced later.
