Works by five international women artists, of different generations, but with remarkable common elements that the visitor is invited to explore. Starting from the geometric elements in their art but also their personal philosophy as it was formed and expressed with passion and consistency through their works, the exhibition will offer a new approach, knowledge, and aesthetic pleasure to our visitors.
The “Panorama” section of the “Meteortia” exhibition closes with a great tribute to Thessalian painting as we have tried to explain, diverse artists, older and younger, co-exist, so that any composition of this particular group exhibition emerges through the contrasts or the controversies of the individual as a result of a historically and aesthetically “honest”, I hope, compromise. Attributing what is due to the national memory, interpreting as much as possible the “familiar evils” but also foretelling, as only art can do, the future we deserve
