Artists Meet in Laconia, Crete.
Silvia Leigh and local artists meet in Laconia.
Yesterday morning I attended the first meeting of the newly formed Art Group. The group comes under the umbrella of I.N.C.O. and aimes to meet once a month to discuss fine art and famous artists, hold workshops and visit galleries and museums. Local artist Sylvia Leigh opened the meeting. She welcomed fellow artists, about 20 in all, and gave a talk about the life of Gaudier who died in WWI age 24. She also described how the work of this artist had influenced her own sculpture, emphasising how the discovery of self expression had been released after seeing his many and multifarious carvings. The next meeting will be held on Saturday, May 19 at the taverna in Laconia.
