  • For all foreign friends in English:
    In November 2010 I started The AthensArt Ning site for the " Centre of Arts for 4 Seasons" in Athens, from which time the network has grown rapidly, in June this commitee decided to exhibit in  "Technopolis" at Gazi Square (the place to be, the cultural center of Athens, 10 minutes walk from the center). More than 200 artists sent their work to Athens, more than 70 were actually present in Athens.
  • In June there were more than 700 international members, so the site is active day and night.
    In the meantime I'm busy with all, as a webmaster, and active in different committees: the international committee of recommendation, the selection commitee, in the graphic design group, etc.
  • Above a page with all activities
  • The catalog (276 pages):
    The design was made by two Dutch, Sacha Janzee and myself. We send a lot of mailings for all content and produced this catalog in our "spare" time (hours and hours and hours
