Triada Samaras in the Nikos Kazantzakis Exhibition in Athens, Greece (Coming Soon!)


I am very pleased to announce I will be exhibiting three paintings at the AthensArt International Arts Exhibition Athens/Greece 2017, which is being dedicated this year to the well known writer, poet and philosopher Nikos Kazantzakis.  A detail from two of them and more information about this exhibition is below:

In addition, my cousin Yianni Zaglaris and his mother, my great aunt Sofia Zaglaris (95 years young) will also be participating in the exhibition.  Yianni will be leading a round table discussion on a piece he wrote (and I co-edited) analyzing the Kazantzakis/Einstein connection and Sofia will show (by photo replication) the award winning painting she donated several years ago to the Kazantzakis Museum in Crete.  This means THREE generations of my family will be participating in this art exhibition/event!

After working for a month I am nearing completion of this large oil on canvas. I will keep you posted but it is close! But oil painting takes 'forever' I am always humbly reminded when I enter the studio.
