The exhibition will run from December 6-12 and will include work of the members of international artist group, The Travelling Weave, of which Zacharias is a founding member. This exhibition will be the kick-off event of the 13 Kare Art Festivali, an annual festival sponsored by the Adana Art council. Monica Zacharias has been a Premiere Portfolio Artist at absolutearts.com since 2001.
“The "13 Kare Art Festivali" is a festival that takes place each December in Adana city,” says Safa Bute, a Turkish member of the Travelling Weave, “About 10 years ago there was an accident around Adana. At the accident 13 amateur and professional photographers died. In their memory the Adana Art Council organizes this festival every year. This year, in addition to the Travelling Weave exhibit , there will also be an exhibition of a famous Turkish photographer.”
The Travelling Weave recently had an exhibition at the University of Georgia Center for Continuing Education in Athens and at the Oconee Cultural Arts Foundation in Watkinsville, Georgia. The Weave consists of eight artists from Canada, Spain, Italy, Chile, Brazil, Turkey and the United States. The members met at the Florence Biennale in December 2003, where they formed this smaller group and agreed to exhibit in each of their countries. In addition to the two exhibitions in the Athens area, the Weave has also exhibited in Porto Recanati, Italy in 2004.
Zacharias, best known for her acrylic media paintings, will be exhibiting new paintings in Adana. “All the members of the Weave decided they would paint at least one painting relating to the topic of Peace.
