Art Exhibition 2009 to celebrate the 26th Anniversary of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus


By Heidi Trautmann


I have already witnessed some other anniversaries with art workshops; quite successful ones. This year there will be a concert on November 13 to start with at the Bellapais Abbey at 20:00. I could not find out the theme nor the performers.


On November 14, between 10:00 and 13:00 a ceramic workshop for the youngsters at the Atatürk Cultural Centre.


Now we come to fine arts:

On Saturday November 14, at 11:00 in the morning, just while next door the kids are kneading small art works, the exhibition of our renowned local artists will be opened with their work on display for this special day at the same venue.


The participating artists are:


Salih Mustafa Çizel                                      

Hüseyin Özinal

Feridun Işıman

Feryal  Sükan

Ayhan Menteş

İlkay Önsoy

İnci Kansu

İsmet Tatar

Osman Keten

Emel Samioğlu

Şenol Özdevrim

Gökçe Keçeci Şekeroğlu

Türksal İnce


The exhibition will be just for one short week until November 20; viewing times at working hours, whatever that is, I think from 9.00 – 13.00 and 14:00 to 17:00. Some of our most important artists I would say.


To conclude the celebration activities there will be the


II. International Folkloric Dance Festival


Date: 16th of October 2009

Time: 8 pm
