Harry Hawkins exhibition

Artist Harry Hawkins, husband of author Sheila, has produed some forty paintings and drawings, in acrylic, pen and ink and line and watercolour wash, all centred round the theme of harbours and fishing shelters.

‘Fishing Boats And Fishing Birds’ will be shown at the Matisse Gallery and Framing House, Paphos from October 8-13.

There will be no official opening and viewing will be from 9am to 9pm daily.

Apart from the permanent and ongoing display of his work at the Hawkins Studio in Neo Khorio, Harry rarely exhibits outside these days, and this new collection is eagerly awaited by his admirers.

He is well known for the cover paintings and detailed line drawings which illustrate the five best selling books written by his wife. Now the couple, already used to working as a team, have discovered another, rather unexpected, way to combine their talents.

Noting his wife’s enthusiasm in describing the daily antics of a pair of juvenile cormorants, overwintering in the harbour at Latchi, he gave her a digital camera, and she began to capture striking images of the birds, fishing boats and colourful baskets of nets.

“I was impressed” said Harry, “and couldn’t wait to get painting. Whenever time permitted, we went to other harbours in the area and spent time photographing and sketching together. We even drove all the way to Potamos Liopetri, where the fishing boats shelter in a picturesque river inlet and are moored to rickety piers made from roughly nailed together bits of wood. It reminded me of Latchi, some twenty or more years ago, before it became the modern marina it is today.”

Harry is not an impressionist, and there is no element of ‘see if you can guess what this is’ about his paintings. His early training as a technical artist instilled in him a great love of drawing, perspective and detail, and these elements are apparent in all his work.

Alice and the Rainbow in the Box

CARLA Abrantes is showing at Argo Gallery, with a remarkable exhibition that continually alludes to the subject of Alice when in Wonderland (or elsewhere) for its themes.

It also offers vibrant visual stimuli using coloured flexi-glass. The gallery is alight with work of a very high standard.

Carla Abrantes was born in 1977 in the city of Porto, Portugal. She completed her undergraduate studies in Painting and Drawing at the Fine Arts Academy of Porto and later was awarded Fulbright and Universiy of Florida scholarships, in order to do a Master in Fine Arts with emphasis on Painting and Drawing, in the United States.

The artist has exhibited and gained prizes in 58 shows and events across the Iberian Peninsula, the United States, France and Cyprus.

She is currently an Art/Art History instructor at the Frederick Institute of Technology in Limassol.

Iconography

TasouLla Papaneophytou-Lekaki was born in Nicosia and is also a musician, and has worked for 33 years for CYBC’s musical programmes.

Her exhibition of iconography continues until October 13.

Two halves

Nicholas Panayi and Mustafa Hasturk are at the Artspace Studio, in Limassol.

This Project-Installation project opens tonight at 8pm and continues until October 24.

Artspace Art Studio 55 is at Andrea Droushioti 23A, Hero Square (Rialto ) Limassol.

Channelling Fields of Conception

ATHINA Betini is at the Apocalypse Gallery, Nicosia, with a bold and imaginative exhibition.

It opened on Wednesday and continues until the 20th of the month.

Amazing colour with imagery bordering on the surreal.

Here are some intriguing notes by the artist given to The Weekly by the gallery.

"Through the branches of wisdom, I sow the seeds of imagination; under the leaves of a patented paradise. I reach for the unreality of a boundless sky, for a light that washes me with abstractions of knowledge and truth.

"The Tree has the role of the experienced, wisdom-giver; it is because of this, the viewers can grow like seeds and make their own assumptions of the "dream".

"The tree shelters the "seedlings" and helps them to understand the dreamworld by helping to form their own ideas about the "land". Trees are all individual, just as no face is like another.

"The country captured my imagination. I realised how beautiful it all is. It’s ravishing when there’s no one in it. For me it has always been a landscape of dreams. It’s not just to draw the eye but to conjure the spirit of place. I like to transport the viewer somewhere that he hasn’t been."

In the island of Cyprus

MARIA Doriti’s exhibition is at Kypriaki Gonia, Larnaca, until October 17.

The "Marine Routes" are constituted by works of art inspired by what surrounds us, the sea and the sandy beaches of Cyprus.

Kikos Lanitis at Gloria’s Gallery

This exhibition will continue until the 16th of the month.

One of our major artists, Kikos Lanitis had his work recently shown at the Arterra Museum of Austria. He is showing several impressive installations at Gloria’s, and the exhibition will eventually go to Athens.

Expressive painting, combining with applied imagery to demonstrate the complexity of the facial expressions of individuals.

All the works are created with that wonderful fluid painterly "attack," which Kikos Lanitis masters so well.

Every area of pigment registers passion and essential information.

EKATE at the Melina

NEWS has come in of a mixed exhibition by EKATE members on Monday.

It takes place at the Melina Mercouri Hall, Famagusta Gate, in aid of those affected by the devastating fires in Greece.

Julia Astreou returns from ETN

JULIA Astreou has returned from the 14th ETN Conference in London having represented Cyprus. ETN stands for the European Textile Network.

While there she gave an illustrated lecture "Cyprus Traditional Embroidery and Weaving" which included its contemporary development.

The visit was sponsored by the Cultural Services of the Ministry of Education.

There were guests from European countries as well as other places too - including Japan.

Julia has a weaving "home’ in Kaimakli Square. Do visit.

Costas Joachim, painting master

THIS important exhibition by one of our painting masters opens tonight at Alpha Gallery at 7.30pm and will continue until the 14th of the month.

It will be opened by First Lady Fotini Papadopoulou.

Part of the proceeds from the exhibition will be donated to the Cyprus Red Cross.

Urban Soul Festival V2

WHY on earth this most important and exceptionally meaningful event should be badly organised surely reflects these confused times.

It was in the moat by Eleftheria Square on Saturday and almost in the dark. You could trip over.

A relaxing time for the kiddies?

Two films; one titled "Hardcore" (!). Some lovely music and several very good installations which often related brilliantly to our situation now and must be seen again.

Participators for the visuals (if you could find them) were, I believe: Elizabeth Doering, Eliza Pieri, Georgia Georgiou, Kika Kazamia, Maria Stavrides & Maria Yiannoura, Marianna Constanti, Mariza Bargilly, Nicoletta Papamichael, Pear Project (Anna Fotiadou & Christos Polydorou), Tatiana Ferahian, Vaso & Charalambos Sergiou, Washing Up Ladies (Lia Lapithi & Marianna Kafaridou).

The imagination and talent used in some of these installations could easily be channelled into the start of our own Documenta or Biennale.

New Exhibitions

TECHNIS Dromena Gallery have organised an exhibition which has now opened, continuing until October 16.

It is called"Create and Contribute to the Fight against Parkinson’s Disease."

There’s music, films, book sales and food too at other times.

Telephone 22 496398

Here are the artists participating:

Adi Attashi, Rhea Bailey, Monica Demetriades, Nitsa Hadjigeorgiou, Andreas Karayan, Maria Kazazi, Maria Koudouna, Chrysi Koumna, Pieris lambrou, Eraklis Mavrommatis, Nicolas Panayi, Andreas Paraskeva, Constantinos Smyrnios, Panos Stafanides, Hambis Tsangaris, Evgenia Vasiloudi, Horst Weierstall.

From Nafplion to Nicosia.

THE collections of the Peloponnesian Folk Art Foundation can still be seen at the Leventis Museum of Nicosia. Until January 30, 2008.
