Titled ‘The Harbor” and curated by art historian Maria Migadi, the exhibition will include 30 paintings created by nine Greek artists.

“We hope that the multi-sided, clear work of the artists will speak to the soul of every visitor and will initiate inspiring and interesting dialogues regarding a different aspect of our country,” Migadi said.

The artists participating include Zetta Antsakli, Yiannis Asimakopoulos, Stathis Vatanidis, Tania Dimitrakopoulou, Stavros Diakoumis, Gefso Papadaki, Sofia Petropoulou, Eleni Politopoulou and Pavlos Samios.
