Centenary Art Exhibition explores the 'Odyssey'

On Sunday 29 May, acclaimed novelist Arnold Zable opened the Centenary Art Exhibition at Steps Gallery in Carlton in front of 150 people.

The Art Exhibition was an opportunity for the many talented artists in our community to make an artistic contribution during this special milestone year for our Society.

The artists were given a theme to inspire them: ‘ODYSSEY – AN ARTIST’S JOURNEY’ which explores life’s journey and those experiences that shape us both individually and collectively. The artists, all of whom have a connection with our beautiful island of Ithaca, captured the theme imaginatively and evocatively.

We thank each of them for their wonderful contribution.

Our special thanks to the Centenary Art Exhibition Committee, Kathy Vlassopoulos, Georgia Vlassopoulos and Tina Dellas, who worked enthusiastically over three years to mount this exhibition.

The Centenary Art Exhibition will close on June 12.

For all of you fluent in Greek, read what Neos Kosmos had to say about the opening.
