Photography Exhibition – Choice November 28, 2010
one is imprisoned in his freedom
his heart is frozen but has liquid memories
he comes home to be trapped…
when you fill your eyes with truth
you cover your face with a mask
and when you finally see all details
your soul is blooming
…it is the right time to burn
to see the horizon..

Open Studios 2010 October 17, 2010
Open Studios 2010 appears to be a resounding success this year with artists, artisans and crafters reporting an upswing in visitors. It looks as if tourists are returning to the island of Aphrodite, which should warm the cockles of her heart.
Each year, the artists of Cyprus open their workspaces and homes to the public. At all venues they will be on-hand to help you engage with their creations, keen to talk you through the extraordinary range of materials, skills and traditions that inform their work. To avoid disappointment, please consult the guidebook which is free and available at any of the Cyprus Tourism Organisation’s offices and many, many other outlets throughout the Polis, Paphos and Limassol areas, or consult the website to see which studios will be open on your chosen route.
To help you find your way, participating artists will display an official Open Studios banner or poster outside their premises as well as directional arrows to guide you there. Be sure to check the website for printable maps to take along and any other information you may need.
Participating studios are open from 10.00 am to 1.00 pm and 2.00 pm to 6.00 pm on both Saturdays and Sundays.
The season ends on the weekend of October 24-25. Don’t squander the opportunity to be warmly welcomed into the hearts and hearths of the artists of Cyprus. They are opening their doors for you to enjoy their creations.

Karen Wroe: Tangible Textures August 30, 2010
Karen Wroe is interested in art as long as she can remember. Basically being a self-taught artist, Wroe experimented using different techniques; worked with various mediums; read numerous books and visited many galleries in Europe. This exploration has made her type of artist she is today. Not out to shock but to encourage people to sit, view and enjoy!
Wroe’s work is held in both private and public collections, in the UK, Germany, Portugal, Cyprus and the USA. The portfolio can be viewed online at http://www.kwc-art.com.
The exhibition TANGIBLE TEXTURES will start on SATURDAY the 4th of September at 2PM with an informal opening during which you can meet the artist, join us for a glass and enjoy the atmosphere. The show runs until the 27th of September.
Monday through Saturday
From: Saturday, September 4th, 2010

Από ένα μικρό πυρήνα των διοργανωτών με ένα μεγάλο όνειρο να δουν το ευρύ κοινό σε ένα συνεχή διάλογο με τους καλλιτέχνες δημιουργούς που εργάζονται σε ολόκληρη την Κύπρο, έχουμε εξελιχθεί σε ένα καθιερωμένο ετήσιο γεγονός.
Αυτή η συναρπαστική σκέψη έχει εξαπλωθεί για να καλύψει τρεις περιοχές, τις ορεινές, τις παραθαλάσσιες και τα κέντρα πόλεων. Η ελπίδα μας είναι ότι οι επισκέπτες των εργαστηρίων/στούντιο θα συνεχίσουν να απολαμβάνουν έναν ευρύ κατάλογο καλλιτεχνών και τεχνιτών καθώς επίσης να εξοικειώνονται όλο και περισσότερο με τους ανθρώπους και τους τόπους αυτού του ξεχωριστού νησιού.
Ευχαριστούμε τους χορηγούς και τους διαφημιστές μας, πολλοί από τους οποίους μας στηρίζουν συνεχώς από την έναρξή μας, και ελπίζουμε ότι θα χρησιμοποιήσετε τις υπηρεσίες τους όποτε είναι δυνατόν.
Ελάτε να γιορτάσουμε μαζί τα γενέθλιά μας την Τετάρτη, 29 Σεπτεμβρίου, στις 7:30μ.μ., στο πολιτιστικό κέντρο Πάφου Παλιά Ηλεκτρική. Συναντήστε τους φετινούς συμμετέχοντες, τους υποστηρικτές και τους διοργανωτές και δείτε μια καταπληκτική έκθεση των έργων που αντιπροσωπεύουν τα εργαστήρια/στούντιο, καλωσορίζοντας σας τον Οκτώβριο.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, OPEN STUDIOS!
From a small core of organisers with a big dream of seeing the general public in an ongoing dialogue with artistic creators working across Cyprus, we have grown into an established annual Event.
This exciting concept has naturally spread to encompass three regions, from mountain side to seaside and town centres and is clearly just getting started. It is our hope that studio visitors will continue to enjoy an ever-widening directory of artist and artisan disciplines while also becoming more familiar with the people and places of this special island.
We thank our sponsors and advertisers, many of whom have supported us continually since our inception, and we hope that you will use their services whenever possible.
Come celebrate our birthday with us on Wednesday, September 29th, 7:30pm, at the Paphos Cultural Centre Palia Elektriki. Meet the 2010 participants, supporters and organisers and view an amazing showcase of works representing the studios welcoming you in October.
More on Open Studios 2010

Founded in 2006, Open Studios is an adventure into the creative world of the second largest visual arts event in Cyprus. There is a wealth of all art forms on the island and Open Studios is just one way in which we celebrate this.
This year’s Open Studios event once again takes place over the first four weekends of October, our Culture Month. Open Studios is endorsed by the Cyprus Department of Education & Culture, Cultural Services and CTO (Cyprus Tourist Organization).
Each year, the artists of Cyprus open their workspaces and homes to the public. At all venues the artists and artisans will be on-hand to help you engage with their creations, keen to talk you through the extraordinary range of materials, skills and traditions that inform their work. To avoid disappointment, please consult the guidebook or website to see which studios will be open on your chosen route.
From mid-September, pick up a FREE copy of the Guide to Artists at all CTO offices and many businesses across Cyprus. You can also download the Guide from our website. To help you find your way, participating artists will display an official Open Studios banner or poster outside their premises as well as directional arrows to guide you there. Be sure to check the website for printable maps to take along and any other information you may need.
Participating studios are open from 10.00 am to 1.00 pm and 2.00 pm to 6.00 pm on both Saturdays and Sundays throughout the month of October. Please note the hour-long break for lunch.
Many artists live quite near each other, making it convenient for visitors to see several in the same area. Artists will have details of the other participating studios in their areas as well as additional maps detailing suitable routes. These may also include other items of interest such as a local taverna, a monastery or a winery to include within the visit. There is no need to make an appointment and there are no entry fees or charges by the studios, except for a €2.00 charge to the Print Museum at Platinisteia Village.
Our website showcases all the artists taking part. You can even switch to a map mode, where you can explore maps of the various areas and see what’s happening near you.
