Urban soul

I think it was Andy W who photographed something for 12 hours. Or was it 24? Anyway Pantheon director Petros Lapithi has organized "Urban Sprawl" and from 12 noon tomorrow (Saturday) until midnight our top drawer contemporary artists will create and create in the moat next to Eleftheria Square, Nicosia.

A Happening? An Architectural Moment? A Twilight Transition?

Whatever! It should be the liveliest art event since Vicky Pericleous invaded a shoe shop on the Green Line earlier in the summer. Vicky will be there too plus nothing but the best of our contemporaries.

Cyprus represented in Art Symposium in Latvia

Fine artist and teacher Nicholas Panayi was invited to participate in the annual international "Valmiera Art Symposium 2006" that took place this summer in the Latvian city of culture, Valmiera.

Some of the objectives of this symposium were to encourage the interaction of different art forms and of different artists with their varied backgrounds and experiences so as to create a multicultural language that in turn would be understood not only by the artists themselves but also by the public.

In order to achieve that, the city counsel offered venues for the different events where people would come in contact with the artists and their art. These would include an old people’s home, a conference hall, and presentation of works in public squares, projections on walls easily seen by passers by and the ancient city wall ruins that are frequently visited by locals and tourists alike.

Art forms would include performances, photography, painting, installations, theatre, dance and film.

Adding to the social character of the symposium, Nicholas Panayi was asked to offer other than his drawings and paintings, his teaching skills to a group of talented youngsters.

A figure life class was arranged at the local public school of art with the objective of helping the students express not only what they saw but their inner emotional world. Nicholas arranged a series of workshops that gave the opportunity to the participants to experiment in different mediums and techniques. Teacher and students had the privilege of having their works exhibited first at the historical city walls and then in a private gallery and will remain there until October.

In transition

The focus of this exhibition at the Evagoras Lanitis Centre, Limassol, is ‘displacement’, whether it is caused by political, economic, environmental or social reasons. The exhibition will present the work of 67 artists from 31 countries including Cyprus, most of which has been created specifically for "In Transition".

Through connecting different sites and different people, the exhibition will be searching for a contemporary perception of the realities and dilemmas which confront displaced people.

"In Transition" will be accompanied by three talks scheduled for 4th October 7 -8.30 pm, by US artist and international editor of Leonardo magazine Sheila Pinkel, motion designer from UK. Rob Chiu and video artist from Lebanon Nestrrine Khodr

NeMe is a Limassol based interdisciplinary collective (www.neme.org)

The Evagoras Lanitis Centre is open daily (except Mondays), between 16:00-20:00

Invisible Dialogues

 

 

From October 6-20 an exhibition by Demetris Menikou titled "Invisible Dialogues" will take place at Kypriaki Gonia, Larnaca.

The artist quotes Freidrich Neitzsche:

"The body is a big sagacity,

A plurality with one sense

A war and a peace, a flock and a shepherd"

"Menikou portrays the interior world of the human body, beauty and complexity.

The blend of movement, rhythm relevance and colour, entices the beholder into a sensation of continuous, infinite inner searching. The artist silently raises timeless questions of the human race, such as ‘Where are the boundaries of human perception? ‘When and how does creation begin? ‘Can it be explained by science alone?

Can perfection be depicted?

Demetris Menikou was born in Larnaca in 1979. His interest in art arose at an early age. He holds a Higher Diploma in Graphic & Advertising Design, and a BA Degree in Art&Design. He has participated in several group exhibitions in Cyprus.

Today, Demetris has set up his own workshop in Nicosia, devoted himself to painting, and is constantly on the quest for new creative paths.

Nature enthusiasts

Animal lovers, bird watchers and nature enthusiasts will enjoy an exhibition at the Academic and General Booksop in Larnaca from the 7th October by Irene Ioannou the Australian artist which will be opened Achilleas Achilleaou, President of the Larnaca-Famagusta Association for the Protection of Animals and Birds at 10 a.m.

Irene is a self-taught artist and works mainly in pastels as she feels that nature is served better with the use of this medium.

Growing up on a pineapple farm in Queensland and later living in the beautiful Blue Mountains of New South Wales, Australia has undoubtedly played a role in the development of Irene’s intense love and respect for nature. Fifteen years ago, with her Cypriot husband Savvas, she moved to Cyprus, where they now live in an old village house, filled with animals in the shadow of the Oroklini Hills. From her surroundings she has drawn inspiration for paintings with Australian and Cypriot theme which will be exhibited along with those of animals and birds. A percentage of the sale of Irene’s art will go to the Larnaca – Famagusta Association for the protection of animals and birds.

The Academica and General bookshop is at 41 Hermes St, Larnaca – tel 24 628401 with the exhibition continuing from 7th October until Saturday 21st October. During normal shop hours.

Have seen …

 

Lazaros Kaloyirou at Gallery k

Beautifully painted abstracts using many colours which magically harmonise. Continuing until October 20

Kollakou Ekaterini at Opus 39

The smaller works in this fully figurative exhibition are quite charming. The several larger fully textured figures are excellent, as if Dubuffet had passed this way..

Until 30th September

" Das… PARTY" at Argo

New work by couple Two/ Four/Two. Bold attempt to allign total non-figuration with the occasional figurative gesture. This works best in "Maybe", "Not Quite" and "OOPS Turn Around". The large "das….Party" has sound as well. Bold, adventurous. And exceptionally well turned out.

Until 7 October.

Open College of the Arts

Britain’s Open College of the Arts is launching a new photography course for beginners in Paphos. The course is taught in English and is aimed at adults who want to learn how to take better photographs without overdosing on a lot of technical jargon

Photography for beginners has been running successfully in Britain for over twenty years, but this is the first time the OCA has offered it in Cyprus. According to George Apostoli, the Development Manager of the OCA, ‘you don’t need a fancy camera, you don’t need a dark room and you don’t need to be a genius. All you need is a bit of enthusiasm and a willingness to try something new’.

Most people taking the course do so for the fun and to meet new people, but it also carries credit points that can be used to help get a degree from the Open University or any British university.

For more information telephone Mary-Lynne Stadler on 26642690
