A painting exhibition

One more exhibition hubby and I went to some time ago was at Alaca Imaret,(=the colourful poorhouse).

It was an exhibition of icon paintings related to the liberation of Thessaloniki 100 years ago.

 Among the other artists was Konstantinos Kougioumtzis who is a fellow shadow puppeteer and iconography artist in Drama.
We loved his works of Art.

 Especially Karaghiozis as a soldier of the war in Macedonia.
 There was also a lovely shadow puppet.

Alaca Imaret is so beautiful inside as well.

If you want to see more of Konstantinos' work you can visit his current exhibition in Drama.
