Seventeen Greek artists will be exhibiting their paintings in Grand Palais, at the historical “Hall of the Independent” in Paris. The exhibit will run from the 23rd until the 28th of November.
The artists each in their own way, depict a range of expressive idioms. They place emphasis on nature and the environment; subjects which are of great interest to French art lovers.
The exhibition is expected to attract a large number of visitors from all over the world. Many participating artists from around the world will be featured upon approval by a special committee.
This year the focus is turned to Greece; a fact which justifies the interest by great central art halls which were willing to host a great number of Greek artists who will be taking part.
The artists are:
Avagiannou Rena, Adrianos, Gadeli Vivi, Devetzis Andreas, Deli Eleni, Divari Eva, Ioannou Evaggelia, Kompatsiari Maria, Ktistopoulou Maria, Maridakis Manolis, Mourelou Rinio, Xenos Giorgos, Othonaiou Foteini, Papageorgiou Constantinos, Rammos Costas, Tsirigas Pannos and Haralambous Evaggelia.
Additionally in the central art hall of Etienne de Causans, a collective exhibition of artists Andrianos, Ktistopoulou and Rammos will be hosted from the 25th of November until the 8th of December 2010. The Gallery is located in the heart of Paris, at Rive Gauche in St. Germain de Pres.
Art Historian and Critic Emmy Varouxakis, is in charge of both exhibitions.
Art en Capital continues the prestigious tradition of Art Salons while offering an outlet for new creative sensibilities and the emerging talents of the 21st century. It features works by over 2,000 artists.
Five historic salons all under the same roof provide five good reasons to visit Art en Capital: the Salon des artistes français, the Salon des artistes indépendants, Comparaisons, the Salon du dessin et de la peinture à l’eau (drawings and watercolours), and the Société nationale des beaux-arts.
Heir to the long tradition of painting Salons, Art en Capital is an invitation to take a journey through a world of living art in which today’s trends and identities come face to face.
Each year the event draws over 40,000 visitors. The artists who have been working in solitude, suddenly find themselves all together under the changing skies and majestic cupola of the Grand Palais.
Opening: November 23rd from 2 pm to 10:30 pm, November 24th and 26th from 11 am to 7:30 pm, November 25th and 27th from 11 am to 10:30 pm and on November 28th from 11 am to 7:30 pm.
