the moment my reviews on art exhibition and other events come late because I
have to attend my own exhibition at the Ismet Güney Art Centre. However, I
managed to visit the ones running parallel to mine. One of them was opened in
the very beautifully renovated house in the Arabahmet quarter (opposite Selen
Car park and the Arabahmet Mosque on the other side). We have seen KARMA I, also
an bicommunal art exhibition of paintings right at the opening of the house
itself with their manifold activities of a restaurant, a guest house and art
teaching for children.
the KARMA II event 20 artists – 10 Turkish and 10 Greek Cypriots – brought
their work to display on two floors, charmingly set. Clay in various shapes,
using different techniques and firing. Small figures, tablets, bowls, birds
caught in flight, you must go and see what ceramic artists can make out of
clay; it will give many inspirations and reasons to smile. Go there and try one
of the nice dishes in the lively courtyard.
