Water themes by Greek artists on display at the Citronne Gallery on the island of Poros

Epidaurus is not the only destination that justifies a culturally motivated excursion beyond the boundaries of the city of Athens. And of course venturing beyond the city limits doesn’t necessarily entail a long journey. Take the Citronne Gallery on Poros for instance, which every year comes up with a series of exhibitions worth the short trip from the port of Piraeus. Curating the different shows is Tatiana Spinari, the gallery’s owner, who this year is focusing on the work of Sotiris Sorongas, Chronis Botsoglou and Panayiotis Tetsis. Currently the gallery is showcasing works by Botsoglou – the show runs to August 26. The exhibition includes watercolors and constructions, works created during the artist’s holiday time since 2005. According to the curator, the selection of works is a kind of «visual arts diary» to which Botsoglou returns to every summer, recording his by-the-sea experiences, at Petri on the island of Lesvos. Coming up in September are signature seascapes by Tetsis, an exhibition acting as an extension of summertime.
