“Colors of Greece” Exhibit at the Kimisis Church of the Hamptons

 

SOUTHAMPTON, NY – A unique fine art contemporary art exhibition aiming to promote a vision of Modern Greek civilization to the American public opened last week under the auspices of the Muses of the Hamptons next to the Dormition of the Virgin Mary Orthodox Church in Southampton. It opened on August 9 and will run through September 8.

At an extremely difficult political time in Greek history, and under adverse financial circumstances, “Greek Colors” is a reminder of the beauty, harmony, and perseverance of a great historical culture that helped shape the course of Western Civilization.

In honor of the Greek Contemporary Art, The Muses of the Hamptons displays a special selection of 60 artworks and 21 artists from Greece, and an additional private collection of important Greek artists of the 20th Century.

Each contemporary artist has lived the challenge to transform the daily crisis of present Greece into a personal and harmonious, visual statement from Greece to demonstrate the current face of Modern Greek painting to the residents and visitors of the East End.

The exhibition is organized under the title “Colors of Greece,” exploring contemporary artists and their painterly depictions of the illuminated, inexorable Greek Spirit along with the collaborative support of the Greek artists themselves. We encourage the community at large to visit this important, creative, art event.

Admission is free.

Mission…to Alonnisos, a TNH Documentary

O oceanic you sing and sail White on your body and yellow on your chimeneas For you're tired of the filthy waters of the harbors You who loved the distant Sporades You who lifted the tallest flags You who sail clear through the most dangerous caves Hail to you who let yourself be charmed by the sirens Hail to you for never having been afraid of the Symplegades (Andreas Empeirikos)   What traveler has not been fascinated by the Greek islands, drawn by the Sirens’ song of a traveler’s dreams? TNH and our video show ‘Mission’ marked the change of the season by transporting viewers into the heart of summer.
