New exhibition of arts and crafts made on the island of Symi.
Opening reception Friday 4th January from 5:30 to 8:00pm. Come and join us to have a look at the exhibits and enjoy a glass of wine.
The exhibition remains open until 26th January by appointment (6946 717 851).
We are seeking permission to have a screening of “Persepolis”, a movie by the Iranian graphic novelist, Marjane Satrapy, about her experiences growing up in Iran and France. It links, for the Symi Gallery, the activities of a graphic artist, a literary practitioner and the Symi people who work together to try to help the refugees who end up beleaguered on the island. Linked to an exhibition of women artists and a poetry event under the same name, “A Woman’s Voice”, it seems apposite to have this movie about “exile” to conclude the exhibition.
We have re-scheduled this screening for Friday 14 December due to adverse weather here in Symi!
This is the first post on this new blog to update you on the activities of the Symi Gallery and Haycox Art. This blog will notify you of new exhibitions, any special events such as Poetry evenings, art classes and the screening of films.
