Founded in 2017, Aqua Gallery is is a contemporary art space housed within Art Hotel, Pyrgos, an innovative luxury property on Santorini.

The Aqua Gallery is dedicated to the promotion of modern Greek artists, providing a dynamic space in which to present their work.

“After the initial opening of Aqua Gallery in the spring of 2017, we were excited to see the space thrive throughout a busy and prosperous summer season,” Sofia Matzourani, Business Development Manager at Aqua Vista Hotels, said. “It is an honor to provide such a flourishing art space for both guests at Art Hotel and the local community on Santorini, and we look forward to a successful season ahead.”

This year, the gallery will host three exhibitions over the summer season (April – October), under the creative guidance of #Rest@rt, a unique arts platform led and managed by sculptor Kelly Athanasiadou and that promotes Greek artists to international visitors via exhibition spaces in five-star hotels and resorts.

Aiming to start the season in style, Aqua Vista Hotels’ first exhibition welcomes Athenian gallery Artshot – Sofia Gaitani, and its annual collective show ‘Summer Lovers’. Showcasing the works of 24 visual artists under the creative direction of painter Sofia Gaitani, ‘Summer Lovers’ will run from the 21st April – 3rd July. The collective displays pieces inspired by Greek summers: hot afternoons, sea, sun, freedom and, of course, love.

“Aqua Vista Hotels is glad to be celebrating contemporary Greek artists once again, and promoting their work to international visitors,” Matzourani added.
