Meeting a LOCAL ARTIST

…BRIT LINDSTROEM

Brit Lindstroem is a Norwegian artist who has been residing on and off the island for about the past 20 years. Her love for the arts and painting in particular started in 2007 when she first came to the island of Aphrodite (Venus) and started taking classes at Nick Costa’s studio. 

Her love for colors together with her thirst to express her creativity through her paintings, has let her to explore all sorts of themes through her artworks; from nature to stormy weather, seascape scenery and beyond, Brit’s art is clearly very versatile and alive. Her source of inspiration also varies from walks in nature with its colours, local seascapes, photographs and magazines.

Brit mostly paints with acrylics but she also likes to explore with mix media.

Brit had also been a member of the Cyprus Open studios where she had participated in various art group exhibitions. She had also been showing her works at The Makers Space in Tala together with other artists recently.

Currently, she holds a studio in Chlorakas at the Artemis Studios, a space hosting different artists, where she continues to show her work.

To view more on Brit Lindstroem’s artworks, you can contact her at brit.lindstroem@gmail.com to arrange an appointment or visit her at Artemis Studios in Chlorakas, Paphos.

THE MAKERS SPACE – A MEETING POINT FOR CREATIVE MINDS

In the beautiful hills of Tala, near Agios Neophytos Monastery, lies The Makers Space, a unique and creative art facility hosting membership-based studio and gallery space for artists and ceramists.

The whole concept was born about 5 years ago when its creator, Lee-Anne Raw, was in search of something with a meaning. As a ceramic maker, she was on a quest for a small studio space when she discovered the beautiful stone building close to the monastery.  It was a matter of time until she renovated and transformed it into the present incredible art facility.

The Makers Space offers a range of membership options that cater for full-time artists, serious art hobbyist as well as beginners. Currently, the space hosts a team of 20 people while it covers classes on a weekly bases for about 14-18 children.  The space also offers a series of events and exhibitions which are listed on its Facebook page.

Quoting Lee-Anne Raw… ’Arts come with a challenge… in our personal journey we need to push ourselves to find what we are capable of’.

Art Studio News – December 2021

Staying in touch with art… by Kiara Timm

Dear Friends,

It all started a year ago December 2020, the birth of the ‘Art Studio News’ newsletter; the idea to provide positive art news, keeping the good vides going as well as bringing people together through the arts.

Through this year, every monthly edition has been unique and special, aiming to provide something different each time. The section ‘Meeting a local Artist’ has been a treasure to learn and to get to know different talented artists. Their unique style and creative mind has offered the opportunity not only to learn about their art but also provided a source of inspiration in many ways.

To all the artists who have been involved in the newsletter in their own way, thank you for your support. Keep creating as art is the ‘food for the soul’. 

To all the readers of the newsletter, thank you for keeping reading it, sharing it and for your positive feedback. You have all been a driven force to keep it alive and going. It would not have existed without your support.

May your upcoming holidays be inspiring, creative and special.  As always, stay well, stay positive and enjoy your reading!

Meeting a  local  artist…LOUKIA MAVROMOUSTAKI!

Thirsty for life and creativity, Loukia Mavromoustaki is a self-taught artist who never gives up learning!  Loukia’s passion for the arts started in 1994 when she first took Ikebana lessons. This Japanese art of flower arrangements has been an inspiration as well as a spiritual process which brought her closer to nature. Nature and human creativity are brought together into one!

Loukia always loved walks in nature and Ikebana brought her even closer to nature by getting to know the texture and the feeling of various flowers as well as the seasons when they are in bloom. 

She discovered that by creating, it filled her heart with joy and peace and that influenced her into wanting to explore and learn more about arts and crafts. This also led her to start taking painting classes from a well-established, prominent artist and teacher. She took art classes for 7 years (1996-2002) while during that time she participated in a couple of group exhibitions.

Painting helped her to notice the different colors in nature and even more! Loukia started painting landscapes and particularly themes involving the sea as she grew up next to it.

Parallel to painting, she started doing dried flower arrangements and handcraft creations. In 2000-2001, she organized her own handcraft exhibitions. Her unique creations have been admired by many as she keeps them authentic with natural materials.

What makes her art special is the process and the love she puts into each one of her creations that connects her with the viewer through nature with its colors and elements.

Meeting A LOCAL  artist…

MARINA EMPHIETZI!

Marina’s work explores issues of time, life and memory.

She creates engaging artworks in a distinct semi-abstract style inspired mostly by water and the marine environment. With the sound of crashing sea waves and the hot feeling of sand under bare feet, Marina Emphietzi’s story starts in Famagusta, Cyprus. Her family’s childhood home built along the scenic coastline, she spent most of her days by the beach. It is here that she came to know the limitless freedom of the Ocean.

Surrounded by the vivid landscapes of Cyprus, art came naturally to Marina. Her heart’s desire was to study art, although she would pursue a successful career in hotel management and marketing before finally achieving her life-long dream. She has studied at the prestigious schools of Central St. Martins and the University of Massachusetts Amherst (UMASS).

She lost her home in the trauma of war. The ocean and its waters, full of life and possibility, are a part of her most joyful memories. They are from which she draws inspiration from in her work and why her pieces have the power to evoke strong feelings of nostalgia and freedom.

A world traveler, Marina has called many places home. The man-made beaches of Dubai, the crowded markets of Ethiopia, and now, the grey skies of London, U.K., each brings their own colour palette to Marina’s current work. Created with robust energy, her paintings have playful textures and a distinct style.

They bring to surface lost memories of being near water, the sound of rumbling waves, the feeling of a warm breeze across skin. A metaphor of the transient human experience, her artwork suggests we flow through the journey of life, ever-changing and free.

Art Studio News – September 2021

Staying in touch with art – by Kiara Timm

Dear Friends,

Getting back on track from Summer to Autumn can be something to look forward to! Having a fresh start, back to the studio or your kitchen table, outdoor space or wherever your creative spot is and materializing creative ideas in any art form that you enjoy working on can be a very exciting feeling.

Autumn in the island can be inspiring in itself with it’s more bearable temperatures, beautiful sunrise and sunset colors and sunlight.

So, let your creativity flow and motivation to drive you to an exciting outcome! As always, stay well, stay positive and enjoy your reading!

MEETING A LOCAL ARTIST… IRINI KLOKKARI

This month we are excited to introduce the artist Irini Klokkari who is originally from Athienou, Larnaca. Irini has obtained a BA in Interior Design and an MA in Interdisciplinary Design.

She has created her own studio space, the ‘Klokkari Design Studio in her birth place Athienou, Larnaca, where she mainly focuses on character illustration. Her inspiration is mostly coming from the Cyprus traditions as it is so rich and has much to offer where each person perceives it in their own way.

According to Irini, the roots, history, culture and civilization are part of what makes us unique, thus we have to respect and appreciate it.   Through her modern design and style Irini has created characters which are presented on different items in order to offer a special moment to each person, may this be anniversaries, weddings or baptisms.

Her characters collection includes traditional folklore art of Cypriot ladies and men, bakers, embroiders, Greek gods and goddesses as well as other characters from the Greek mythology.

Apart from the traditional illustration of the various folklore characters, Irini is also involved in the illustration of beloved ones, creating humoristic portraits to offer a unique gift to any home environment.

You can check out Irini’s collection of illustrations and characters at her on-line shop on Facebook at Klokkari Design Studio.

  • Publicity over all media, newspapers, magazines, radio and television, but above all else, extensive social media coverage!
  • Being featured in the COS printed catalogue with 1 image, again on a page of your own – not only distributed locally, but also published on a global publishing platform … the entire year of your membership – and then archived indefinitely. Valuable beyond measure!
  • Gaining recognition is critical to being or becoming a professional artist or artisan
  • If you are already a professional artist or artisan, this gives you the opportunity to meet collectors, locally and abroad
  • Signage to guide visitors to your open studio or workshop – and much more
  • Networking opportunities with fellow members
  • You gain EXTRA exposure to the art-loving and art-buying public
  • You take 100% of the direct sales of your artwork at your open studio, as well as the proceeds of any commissions you gain.
  • Be a part of the larger community and meet other artists from all over the island and abroad
  • You have the opportunity to build your vein of gold: your mailing list!
  • COS serves as an inspiration to create new work every year and to interact with a deeply admiring public – yes, they love it! Hundreds of open studio events worldwide are proof of that!

Cyprus Open Studios have negotiated with galleries in Limassol, Nicosia and Paphos to host Cyprus Open Galleries in 2019 – please click on “Register here” and select your option under the “Members Plan”. You stand a chance of being part of a curated exhibition in one of three well-respected galleries in Cyprus. The gallery fee is incredibly low for curated exhibitions!

Over and above this, we also assist artists – physically – to exhibit abroad. Five hopefuls applied for the Royal Academy of Arts Summer Show 2019, and whilst they were not accepted, they now go on (by special arrangement) to the Salon des Refuses exhibition, also in London. Marina Emphietzi works tirelessly to promote you and your work in London.

At the Salon des Refuses show in 2018 – see more on the OGA page on our website.      Marina on the left, Aristi Hadjisavva on the right and Celia’s Potoudis MacPherson’s  pot    at centre stage

Please select YOUR option on the registration page under “Membership Plan” and we will provide you with the specific venues on offer. Another option is to register your interest in exhibiting abroad, also an option on the same page and under the same heading.

PLEASE NOTE that if you opt for exhibiting abroad, you will automatically become a “Member Only” of the Cyprus Open Studios (COS) website with all the benefits included; the usual fee is €35,00 but it will be yours for free.

Lastly, but certainly not least, the winner of the 2018 COS Prize Draw was presented with his prize. Mr. Peter Gehrer from Switzerland – a swallow between there and Cyprus – chose the free art lessons offered by Stephen Oliver Postgate and sponsored by Cyprus Open Studios. Stephen will give Peter his full attention in September when Peter returns to our beautiful island. Here are some happy faces in Stephen’s studio in Kamares Village, Tala, Paphos.

Read more about this Prize Draw on our website, and also in our catalogue which is published every September. This year we offer TWO prizes – not a choice between them! That means the public will stand TWO chances to win. Isn’t that great?

Publication1 ED.: Maria Etheridge

We begin again…

We trust you have all had a splendid festive season and are ready for the work of the new year. We certainly are!

As a starting point, we would like to thank you for each and every LIKE we have had on our Facebook page  –  You will also find a button just below the cover image of this page that says LEARN MORE – click on it and it will take you to our website

There is also a huge amount of information on our blog, accessible on the website under the button BLOG – Have fun reading all about what we do, how we do it and the biggest question of all: WHY we do it!

That is a very good question… We do what we do because we are besotted with art and artists – of almost every kind! The Cypriot market is pretty small in comparison with the rest of the world markets for art and, essentially, that is the reason why we are trying to help expose our local creators to the local market and also to the international domain.

To this end, we have an international division that assists 2-dimensional artists with exhibitions abroad under the banner of Open Galleries Abroad (OGA)  To this end we would like to invite interested parties to contact us in order to be added to our database for future communication about opportunities locally and abroad. Just drop us a line at info@cyprusopenstudios.com and we’ll keep you up to date with what cooks.

2019 OGA submissions have closed now… you need to be an early bird for these! But don’t despair!  There is 2020 and all the years to follow! Create, create, create! And send us your name, email address and details – just contact us!

Our local operations under the banner of Cyprus Open Studios (COS) will once again be staged in October, between the 11th and 20th, in the studios and work-spaces of our participants, either individually, in groups or at selected gallery spaces. We are in the process of negotiating with gallery owners who would be interested in hosting such activities. Watch this space – we will let you know as soon as we have concrete news. However, the point has always been to open individual studios to the public.

Doesn’t this inspire you to start creating? Some of these are pieces of art in themselves!

We could not give credit for these images  – no copyright infringement intended!

We have also been invited by the Paphos Municipality to participate in cultural activities – again, this is very much under discussion at present. We would like to hear from other municipalities around our beautiful island so that we may work together to give our creative people a wider audience. They certainly deserve it! The talent we have here is phenomenal!

Registration for this year’s open studio event will open on 1 April with an absolute deadline of 30 June. This year’s website entries will go live after that date but in the meantime you can view last year’s participants – AND previous years’ participants under the ARCHIVE button – click on the year you wish to view.

Please note that all material on the website is subject to copyright! Permission to use material from the website can be obtained from each artist whose information is listed on their individual pages – be kind and play fair, please.

Until next time, keep on creating!

Christmas 2018

Only two items this time… we are closing for Christmas from 17 December 2018 until 3 January 2019! And you thought we only worked for 10 days of the year! No, we dedicate ourselves (almost) full-time to YOU! But, we couldn’t leave without wishing you…

Our Christmas card

We are still taking care of the registration processes for the Open Galleries Abroad (OGA) – the deadline has been reached. Please contact Marina for any further information: marina@mmarinaharris.com

The second item of importance is to announce the winner of the 2018 Cyprus Open Studios Free Draw! His name is PETER GEHRER who is a swallow between Cyprus and Switzerland! He will be coming back for his four free art lessons and we will be showing you images when that happens in the autumn of 2019.

Congratulations, Peter!

Peace on Earth!
