Govedarou Art Gallery, in co-organization with the Mariopoulos-Kanaginis Foundation for the Environmental Sciences, presents in its space the group art exhibition entitled: "Climate Change: Man and Natural Disasters", curated by the artist and owner of the gallery Natasa Govedarou. The opening of the exhibition will take place on October 13, 2022, which is also the International Day for the Reduction of Natural Disasters, and its importance is very timely, not only because of the environmental phenomena we experience every day, but also because of the COP 27 conference on climate change. 15 visual artists are participating.
The International Day for the Reduction of Natural Disasters was established by the UN General Assembly in 1989 and is celebrated every year on October 13, with the rationale that it is impossible for man to dominate the forces of nature, but it is possible to reduce their destructive consequences. Poor and developing countries suffer the greatest losses in human resources, as well as unsustainable damages, due to the lack of infrastructure, as well as know-how to deal with natural disasters (earthquakes, floods, tsunamis, landslides and drought).
Greeting speech from the President of Mariopoulios-Kanaginis Foundation for the Environmental Sciences and Secretary General of the Academy of Athens professor Christos Zerefos:
It is with great pleasure that I welcome Govedarou Art Gallery's group exhibition on a subject that is so topical that it is projected as much as a war. The war that humanity is waging to stabilize the climate and be able to heal in the long term the wounds that have been opened in our environment by the reckless use of fossil fuels and not only has great costs. This exhibition comes to embrace Art with Science in such a topical and serious issue. It would be fortunate to see many similar initiatives so that society can be made aware through Art. Mrs. Govedarou and her colleagues deserve warm congratulations with the wish that she will continue and increase her contribution to society and the environment in general.

Govedarou Art Gallery, G. Papandreou 5 (former Antheon, Georgiou stop) in Thessaloniki, Greece organizes in its space the solo exhibition of the artist and internationally awarded watercolorist George Politis entitled "Santorini".
A few words from George Politis about this exhibition.
I visited Santorini for the first time in the summer of 2018. It was "love at first sight". Source of inspiration; How else to do it? The combination of the blue of the sky and the sea with the white (usually) of the houses and churches, the resulting contrasts, the transparency and the shadows (often intense, thanks to the dazzling light) give those elements that are reference points for watercolor. . Four years later, I continue my search in Santorini, trying to discover it step by step. And I'm sure the road is still very long…
Art critic Elli Kokkini has written the following about the work of George Politis:
"… Through the transparent ways of his artistic approach, George Politis gives us his own references with more sensitivity, translating the tactile images into visual… His color palette, clear as water, sometimes invests the entire surfaces of his design types and in other cases only parts of them, particularly exposed to light, leaving to be reflected its reflections and the immediacy of its effect on the texture and the diversity of their construction materials ".
