1st International Yenibogazici Art Workshop – February 7 – 15, 2012
1.YENİBOĞAZİÇİ (AYSERGİ) ULUSLARARASI RESSAMLAR BULUŞMASI
(7–15 ŞUBAT 2012)
International art groups are forming all over Europe, art colonies regularly visited by international artists, our local artists do so in return, meet and work together and exchange ideas. This has become regular practice over the last 10-20 years. And it is very important to keep in touch with art development around the globe.
The group of 18 artists meeting for the first time in Yeniboğazıçı has met last year in Turkey, I am told by Dr. Arif Albayrak who has organized the event. He had taken part as well and produced some very nice paintings. The workshop will be at the Cultural Centre in Yeniboğazıçı, they will work together and hold an exhibition at the end of the workshop on February 15 at 18:00 hrs. One work of all artists will be donated to the municipality which they will hopefully one day be able to hang in their own art museum which is on their agenda. Besides working and producing art, the group members are given the possibility to get to know North Cyprus, will meet artists in their studios and learn about our island.
The artists will take home their work to their home countries to tell of their experiences in Cyprus.
Deniz Plaza has sponsored the workshop by delivering the material.
