5th Greek Artisan Showcase
Oct 2-4, Friday – Sunday 10 AM – 8 PM
402 N. B Street
Socially distanced event
You are invited to be amongst the many who appreciate and own a piece of fine craftsmanship from Greece, at an exceptionally reasonable price, and appreciate that in doing so, you, too, are helping one artist, one family, one village, at a time. Stacey Kitakis has spent the last few years in support of artists and preservation of the Greek culture. The current collection includes paintings, blankets, carpets, ceramics, and jewelry by 30 or more artisans and is a feast for the eyes.
Discover a little-known secret: the richness of Greece’s arts, particularly her handmade rugs from many regions throughout the country. Each piece has its story about the artisan, the technique, and regional cultural traditions. Remarkably, amidst the influence of time and worldly challenge, Greece remains a significant ancient influence of current culture as can be seen in the traditional and contemporary works of her artisans.
Years of a depressed economy, strain of the ongoing refugee crisis, and the evaporated tourism does not bode well for any national of Greece, certainly not her artists.
Your purchase of these items helps sustain a struggling artistic community. Each piece has its story about the artisan, the technique, and regional cultural traditions.
Items available for purchase include:
• Traditional and contemporary rugs
• Embroidered pillow covers
• Traditional and fun ceramics
(Friday) 10:00 pm - 8:00 pm
