Exhibitions

I was honoured in 2006 to be invited to exhibit my sculptures in the new museum of Alonnisos owned and run by Kostas & Angela Mavrikis. The museum is a wonderful arts venue overlooking Patiri Harbour and beyond to the outer islands. Twenty of my marble sculptures were on display, the majority in marble from Italy and Greece, including several pieces made from the local marble from the small island of Skantzoura.

I was privileged to exhibit alongside the artist Larry Rink who has been visiting the island to paint since 1970. The 2006 exhibition was the first major exhibition on the island, with 3000 visitors to the museum over the summer helping to establish the museum as a prestigious venue. I exhibited there again in 2007.
