‘What’s your story?’ exhibition

Exhibit 8 Crafts & Heritage aims to promote Arts and creators. Through this journey, the Gallery presents various exhibitions, projects and artists.

The ‘What’s your story?’ exhibition is the outcome of several workshops Marianna Parmatzia created under the umbrella of the European Erasmus program – European Youth at the Frontlines of Active Citizenship, and the C.I.P (Citizens In Power) organisation. The participants are influenced by the intercultural and creative storytelling workshop “What’s your Story”.
This multi-media exhibition is sponsored by Exhibit 8 Crafts & Heritage.

The participants have different cultural, but also professional backgrounds, and some of them never had the chance to show their stories, wishes or creations in public!
The idea was to create a universal Storytelling, using different media and methods that everybody can understand without using any verbal language!
From audio, to visual methods have been used, so the results are pretty interesting!

So, what’s their Story?

The exhibition’s opening was on the 26th of August and it will be on due the 28th of August.

Also a big thank you for George Bizios, who made the opening even better with his unique sound track.

SNEAK PEEK: ‘The Garden’ Exhibition by Polina Isakharova

A sneak peek of the amazing and cheerful evening here at Exhibit 8 Crafts & Heritage, at the opening of ‘The Garden’ Exhibition by Polina Isakharova. The exhibition was on the 1st of August and it was about a great collection of her interesting, romantic and bright artworks, which were all sold out.
As the artist says:
“Life is messy. It’s unpredictable, ever changing, moving and pushing us to our limits. Not too long ago we were all at home, waiting anxiously as to what would happen next. Our plans were put on hold and the world went into hibernation. While social media was booming with noisy news the streets were quiet. I could feel subtle changes. The sweet flower fragrances changed every time I went grocery shopping. I had time now to notice the new green leaves on trees and the first summer breeze entering our apartment. I felt separated and alone yet quietly connected.
As the sun rose earlier and the days got hotter I could feel an inner summer stirring inside. A new lightness and hope during a time of endless questions. During my months of quarantine I reached for my paintbrushes to keep my sanity. It was my daily prayer. While flowers bloomed outside, I painted them inside; inside my mind that needed comfort, softness and beauty.
A few years ago my friend Ken died. Afterwards I would sneak into his garden which was overgrown with weeds and gather apples from his trees to make jam. While I lived on Vancouver Island my grandmother died in Uzbekistan but I couldn’t go to the funeral. As a solace I took a road trip to San Francisco with a friend and we buried ourselves in the fragrance from hundreds of roses in Portland’s International Rose Garden. Life is messy but we can choose where we look. When we have no control we can at least smell the roses.”

SNEAK PEEK: ‘Abandoned Artwork’ Exhibition opening event

It was a joyful evening and it was our pleasure of having all of you with us!!
Through this exhibition, the artists aim to present themselves and who they truly are through their art pieces, which were left behind and forgotten in the corner of their home, or studio.
In an era of criticism, Art needs to be the stepping stone of creating a better world.

Art does not judge nor does it see right or wrong.

Instead, it gives the freedom to all individuals to express themselves.

Art curator: Evdokia Georgiou

Art director: Sonia Photiou

Exhibition will be on until the 23rd of July.
