‘The 4 Elements: Fire – Earth - Air - Water'
Veysi Soyer, the arts must work together. Artists in all disciplines are
extensively sensitized to all matters of life and walking and working together
will be profitable to all of us, just as the title of the exhibition
suggests…to exist and survive we need all of the elements.
exhibition was opened on a Saturday afternoon at 16:00 hrs at the Eaved House -
a time of the day I personally prefer - by HE Mustafa Akinci, after we have been
offered half an hour of musical poetry performance with the actor Ertaç Hazer
and the musician Dr. Levent Soyer on the piano to the music of Deniz Soyer.
What a creative and artistic family the Soyers are. I was told that the performance had not been
rehearsed before, it was an impromptu performance – very dramatic. At the opening event the third book written by
Burcu Karagöz ‘Touch of Sun’ was presented
and the author was present to sign.
special guest had come to the event, Rita Severis of Rita Severis Foundation
and CVAR, the beautiful museum and art activity centre in Nicosia South. It reminded me that I must visit the place
courtyard of the charming Eaved House was full with guests, a good and
interested audience. The artists
exhibiting and contributing were Veysi Soyer, Rauf Ersenal, Tolga Özasil, Burcu
Karagöz, Evren Karagöz, Ertaç Hazer, Mustafa Müezzinoğlu, Emel Sefer, Elvan
Şenkayalar, Dr. Levent Soyer, Deniz Soyer, Aycan Soyer, Iris Şenay Soyer. Painting, Ceramic, Poetry, Music, Recital,
Graphic Design, Photography, these disciplines were not only on display and on
stage sort of, but the artists had
offered to hold workshops in their art discipline for two days at the Eaved
House. I trust that the workshops were
well attended. To share one’s expertise
with students belongs to one of the basic principles of art because there is
always a new experience involved, also for the sharer.
hope that this event will stimulate to organize this sort of ‘Open Doors’ for
others who are eager to learn from those who know.
