2012 Antipodean Palette Art Exhibition
Art exhibition showcasing the best in Greek Australian talent
The 2012 Antipodean Palette Art Exhibition is on again, opening next Thursday night. The exhibition - organised by the Greek Australian Cultural League - aims at showcasing Greek Australian talent in the arts, through images and paintings.
Over 65 pieces will be on display and the artwork contains landscapes, portraits, collages and photography highlighting the creativity of the community.
"The arts needs to be promoted in the Greek community as the last 20 years, there's been little activity in the visual arts area," says Frixos Ioannides, coordinator of the exhibition, Greek Australian Cultural League.
"So these events show the Greek community that there are a significant amount of artists working in this area and their work needs to be seen."
This exhibition is the second of its kind for the cultural league, and one that he hopes will continue each and every year.
"We had [an exhibition] last year and it was a success," Frixos told Neos Kosmos, "a lot of people commented positively about the idea of a group exhibition and we decided to run it again."
The Greek Australian Cultural League helps promote cultural events for people of Greek background, and aims at including young artists who, in some cases, are showcasing their first works.
And as it's about combining and complimenting all artworks, the exhibition will feature a poetry reading organised by Dimitris Troaditis, and a CD launch of Sappho, Kavafy by Christella Demetriou on July 28. All of the events are free.
"If there was a theme for this exhibition it would be diversity - people show what they do," says Frixos.
"Some of them are portraits some of them are landscapes, some of them collages and some found objects to create a mixed media work. All of them are of high quality and it's worth people visiting the exhibition and see the quality of art Greek Australians can do.
The 2012 Antipodean Palette Art Exhibition opens on Thursday 19 July, at Steps Gallery, 62 Lygon Street, Carlton. For more information visist www.gacl.com.au or email email@example.com
