Lefteris Koronios "Images of my life"

The retrospective painting exhibition of Lefteris Koronios, entitled "Images of my life”, will be opened at the Cultural Centre Megaro Gyzi on Wednesday August 27th, 2014.
The Santorinian self-taught painter belongs to the category of naif folk artists, having a very interesting and personal expressive idiom and technique in his works. He is a restless mind who paints for many decades from an inner sensitivity for all issues related with his life, since he felt the need to change to a picture all his experiences. Guided by his instinct, he selected harmonious color schemes with bright bold colors giving us mainly subjects such as island scenes, fishing boats, sailors and port officers from his island, Santorini.
The presentation of a group of paintings by Lefteris Koronios gives an opportunity to the person who will see them to gain a complete picture of his expressive idiom and his creation, ultimately for his contribution in art.
The curator of the exhibition is Yannis Papaconstantinou, Artistic Director of Megaro Gyzi.
Opening of exhibition: Wednesday 27 August 2014, 21:00

Duration of exhibition: 27/8 - 27/9/2014

The European Festivals Association (EFA) has been uniting distinguished music, dance, theatre and multidisciplinary arts festivals from Europe and beyond for more than 60 years.Thanks to EFA’s history and the continuous support of its members, EFA was chosen to implement the pilot project EFFE by the European Commission.

                The first of EFFE’s initiatives is a quality label. This label is given to festivals with an artistic commitment, involvement in their local communities and a European and global outlook.

                Gyzi Megaron Festival has been selected to receive the EFFE Label 2015-2016. It is now part of the EFFE Platform, initiated by the European Festivals Association, which consists of festivals that stand for artistic quality and have a significant impact on the local, national and international level. The Label recipients represent 31 European countries and offer a wide range of genres and activities to their audiences.

2016 has been defined as Greece’s Year in Russia and Russia’s Year in Greece, by an agreement formed as a joint statement, signed by the two countries in October 2013.

                This year aims to build useful partnerships of mutual benefit with substantial development in both countries’ cultural, scientific, business and social relations, expanding Greek accessibility in Russian society, especially the province, opening up new areas of cultural, scientific, academic and business cooperation, and seeking new markets for tourism, Greek products and Greek innovative productivity.
