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 ".

Govedarou Art Gallery, 5, G. Papandreou (former Antheon Street, Georgiou bus stop) organizes in its space the solo exhibition of the artist Theano Skarlatou entitled "Landscapes of Nature and Places of the Soul".

Art critic Pepi Rigopoulou notes:

Nature, sometimes spontaneous and sometimes in dialogue with human intervention, is the constant "model" or motif in the new series of works by Theano Skarlatou: A silent cluster of trees or an enlarged detail of colorful foliage, or even the rough sea with a pier and a boat moored next to it. The meteoric light, a light sometimes soft, without sharp contrasts, and sometimes penetrating, a lightning that penetrates them and gives them something fantastic, is what gives life to the foliage and the branches or the waters that persist even in their splash in their peace. Color-to-color transitions seek harmony more than surprise. Nature, as depicted by the painter, has no elements of savagery. Behind the foliage, the branches and the trunks of its trees do not threaten the eyes of a beast or a human. The image invites we would rather say the viewer's gaze to stand on it with confidence, to enjoy the play of colors, to immerse themselves in the mystery of their reflections to win a break, a breath. Theanos's works want to be an opening, a different window that does not look at the smog that pollutes cities but suggests escaping to a post-realist elsewhere.

Its material is oil, worked in such a way as to give the image something of the softness of watercolor, and to allow a combination of precision and fluidity. Her work may have more to do with a post-impressionism that nurtures to capture some anecdotal aspects of the moment, rather than the various versions of expressionism, which seek to depict the once-stormy encounter of "nature within" with the external stimulus. However, the moment in her works acquires another dimension, because the linear time that characterizes it meets and intersects the circular of nature. Its landscapes are symbolic places. And this is because the painting imprint of nature is also the fingerprint of the painter and every landscape, no matter how objectively it records the outside world, is indirectly even a place of the soul.
