The Nikos Hadjikyriakos-Ghika Gallery opened one-and-a-half years ago and is now holding its first temporary exhibition in a specially-constructed hall on the ground floor, which will host two small-scale exhibitions each year, each with works by artists lined to the Gallery's permanent exhibits.
The first exhibition is a small tribute to the artist who is our host, Nikos Hadjikyriakos-Ghika.

Greek Seas : A photographic journey in time

Through the centuries, Greece has been indelibly linked to the sea – it runs through the history of the land and the life of its inhabitants; it has never stopped inspiring artists and poets. Following the invention of photography in the mid-19th century and to this date, countless photographic images depicting Greek seascapes have been added to the painted representations of the same topic.
The exhibition will showcase approximately 350 photographs divided into 5 chronological groups: the second half of the 19th century; the first decades of the 20th century; the Interwar Years; post World War II; the age after the fall of the junta to the present day.
