Group Exhibition: On Paper
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
June 1-15, 2017
Opening Reception: Thursday, June 1st, 6 - 8 PM
Timarete Hellenic Art Festival and Gallery d’Arte / Paris Koh Fine Arts are pleased to announce On Paper, a group exhibition focusing solely on art that is created on paper, curated by the distinguished artist Antonia Papatzanaki. On Paper will run from June 1- 15, 2017 with an opening reception on Thursday, June 1st from 6-8:00 p.m.
Offering a unique, overdue, and rare opportunity to see the work of a large number of living artists of the Greek diaspora, the exhibition brings together over twenty works on paper, including drawings, paintings, prints, mixed media, and photographs by known Greek and Greek-American artists residing in New York.
Paper is a medium that offers an intimate and open field for creative elaboration, in which concepts and ideas can be expressed, and can emerge and change with relative ease. Paper is a deceptively simple material that lends itself to weightier projects, for the beauty and simplicity of paper are directly offered in the theoretical and experimental process.
The exhibition aims to show the great diversity of artwork that can be produced on a paper surface using various media and techniques. With a brilliantly diverse range of styles and expertise, On Paper will showcase the artists for their uniqueness and their approach to working with such a versatile material.
