DOP Ottawa Euphrosyne Chapter #292 Enjoys Art at Koyman Galleries

OTTAWA, CANADA – “Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life,” said Pablo Picasso. On March 31, the Ottawa Daughters of Penelope (DOP) Euphrosyne Chapter #292 gathered with Ahepans and friends at Koyman Galleries for a beautiful and inspiring evening of art. This was Koyman Galleries’ first event since the pandemic started.

Koyman Galleries manager and self-taught artist Martha Kokkinos, along with Laura Wood, hosted the DOP and friends for a private, after-hours guided tour of the spectacular 13,000 square foot gallery representing over 175 Canadian artists. The guests were also treated to vibrant wines and delicious hors d’oeuvres.

The attendees’ tour experience was enhanced by Kokkinos’ unique insights and inspired by the variety of art styles from contemporary to classic with a comprehensive selection of mediums and subject matter, including paintings in oil and acrylic, mixed media, works on paper, photography, and limited edition prints. Attendees learned, for example, that Kokkinos’ own abstract paintings try to evoke a feeling or mood through color and movement with a recent series of abstract landscapes inspired by the many walks taken during the pandemic lockdown.
