The Italian Educational Institute presents a series of watercolors by Greek artist Pavlos Habidis, which he painted on commission in the spring of 2015 for a book dedicated to Sicily's Valley of the Temples, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The artist spent several days at the site in Agrigento capturing the monuments and the people visiting them for a coffee-table book “Spring in the Valley,” published by Italy's DeAgostini, and an exhibition in Agrigento in 2016. At the Athens show, the Thessaloniki-born artist will be showing 40 pieces from the series. Visiting hours through February 9 are Mondays to Fridays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 1.30 p.m. Admission is free of charge.
