Being certain that this exhibition will also provide plenty food for thought, we invite all lovers of art to enjoy it”.

 

Vice Mayor (Dep. of Culture) G. GIANNAKAKIS:

“The careful study and observation of the natural landscape, combined with an in-depth knowledge of the elements of everyday life and the matters surrounding us, were his priority and, as one could also say, Nikos Georgopoulos’ special talent.
I would like to thank the art historian, Vasso Petroulaki, for curating the exhibition and the painter’s wife, Pagona Xenaki, painter, for kindly donating the works to the exhibition. 
I invite the art-loving citizens and guests to pay a visit and enjoy this important exhibition, hosted at our Municipal Art Gallery”.

I'm Austrian living in Tavronitis, love nature, music, good books, sunsets, the sea, travelling, socializing and more. I came to Crete as a student in the early 70s, exploring the west and southwest of the island with friends by motorbike. When you are young everything is important and, there are lots of things to do...I did. Job, family,children, travelling the world. But I never lost my love for Crete for a minute. And six years ago I ended up in this convenient corner of Crete, not only for holidays, but to stay and haven't regretted it for a minute.
