"Call for Artists: 2nd Annual International Artists Workshops"
2003-03-17 until 2003-05-07
Omma Center of Contemporary Art
Omma Center of Contemporary Art, which is located in Hania, Crete Greece is organizing an international artists' workshop from May 7 until May 21 2003.
The purpose of the workshop is to bring together artists from all over the world, to promote both mutual understanding of different cultures and traditions and to facilitate artistic inspiration. The organizers want to create an environment where artists can work fruitfully and make worthwhile new acquaintances.
Hania is one of the most beautiful places in the Mediterranean, with the old Venetian Harbor, a multitude of sights: ancient ruins, medieval buildings, fantastic landscapes that combine white mountains with the blue sky and the sparkling clean sea, gorges, trees, very rare plants, etc. An environment that can inspire artists to produce! An experience that every artist should have the chance for, at least once in their life!
Up to 50 artists can participate (You are free to bring non-artists-companions, if you like).
The artists will stay together in beautiful rooms, at a 5 star hotel, overlooking the sea. They can stay in shared rooms (double or triple) or if they prefer they can have their own private room. They will have a studio to work in, which will be open day and night. Click here for more information about accommodations:
You will be offered 2 canvasses each (upon request) and 25% discount on painting material from local shops. You will create works that will be exhibited at the conclusion of the workshop at the unique "NEORIA" exhibition center (a 4,000 square-meter 16th century vaulted Venetian shipyard) in the Venetian harbor afterwards. This exhibition will run from 17 until 21 May 2003. Reception day May 17, 7:00 p.m. Omma will charge 30% commission on sales and undertakes all the costs of the show.(Click here to view the previous exhibition at the NEORIA CENTER)
