times seem to come back, I have missed the art exhibitions. On July 21, I went
to the third … I call them Breakfast Exhibitions at Near East University after
the outbreak of Corona Virus Pandemic… at 09:00 hrs at the Irfan Günsel Congress
Centre Exhibition Hall with works by the Academic Personnel from the Fine Arts
Department together with paintings by artists from countries such as Kirgistan,
Tacikistan, Özbekistan, Kazakistan, Gürcistan, Azerbaycan, Gagauzya and Russia.
missed the opening speeches but still met the artists Mustafa Hastürk and
Serkan Ilseven with their wives, who have new works exhibited there for the
occasion, beautiful abstract colour compositions; the exhibition was to
celebrate the 20 July Peace and Freedom Day 2020.
large sized paintings by the guest artists who had come here on the occasion of
workshops or in residency and worked here on the island – I could recognize many
scenes from Nicosia and Girne, well done.
teaching staff from the university also brought on display very nice printing
works and I could recognise them from their style and message, however many of
the other art works were not signed and names and work information was not
a treasure there is waiting for the finalization of the new art museum, the
infrastructure of which you can already see from afar. What an achievement.
exhibition is open to visit until 29 July and viewing times are from 08:00 –
16:00 hrs. The building is the high building behind the hospital.
