Open to the public on May 2, the exhibition will feature 14 aspiring and established Greek Australian artists.

The Ambassador of Greece, Haris Dafaranos and his wife Eva Dafaranos are holding an exhibition to honour the fallen and wounded sons of Australia and New Zealand on Wednesday 29 April 2015.

Fourteen aspiring and established Greek Australian artists will be showcasing their works at the exhibition entitled ‘Lemnos – the Greek dimension in the Anzac Centenary’, curated by Eva Dafaranos herself. The exhibition officially launched yesterday at the Greek Embassy Residence in Yarralumla, Canberra.

The 14 artists have taken their inspiration from the Anzac spirit of sacrifice, the compassion and hospitality the island of Lemnos provided during the expedition, as well as the Australian nurses’ heroism in the island’s field hospitals.

“The themes chosen examine human feelings in times of war, together with the impact of the suffering, the vibes of a friendly and peaceful land such as Lemnos, the colours of the Greek setting, the Australian heroines and the brave souls of the enlisted men,” Mrs Dafaranos said.

The exhibition will be open to the public on May 2 and 3, from 11.00 am to 4.00 pm. Admission is free.

*The Greek Australian artists participating are: Karen Barbouttis, Nick Bonovas, Stephen Caldis, Olga Cironis, George Comino, Alexandra Danalis, Eyvah T. D, Stella Karydiotou, Dean Manning, Peter Michalandos, Ros Psakis, George Raftopoulos, Athena Xenakis, George Zindilis.
