Paros Arts

Art Cafe Exhibition

To celebrate Valentine’s Day and February as the month of love, the work of Australian artist Tracey Allen will be on exhibit at the Art Cafe this month. Her “HeartArt” exhibition is entitled "About Love..." and features photography, Valentine’s Day gift cards, drawings and paintings.

Tracey holds a BA in Education and runs her own business in Australia as a teacher and trainer in self-development, encouraging her students to "live creatively". In the serene and romantic setting of Paros, she is now taking some time out for herself to fulfil her own creative needs and exercise her considerable creative talents.

HeartArt is a combination of vibrant colour photography, paintings and drawings created here on Paros. Her unusual heart-shaped images occur in nature and around Paros. "Fuchsia Sky" reflects her passion for living in Greece, with heart-shaped bougainvillaea set against the blue sky. She also presents a series of dramatic crayon silhouettes outlining the playful intimacy within a relationship. There are seven in each of the colours of the chakras, from yellow to red to purple. A resourceful artist, Tracey has two unique rock paintings entitled 'The Embrace' and 'Healing Hands' made and coloured with pebbles and soil from the island.

As she says: 'I love the use of vivid colour, variety in textures and mediums, using nature as much as possible - and hearts are everywhere when you stop and look - rock hearts, rope hearts, rust hearts, hearts in plants and food.'

The Art Cafe (shopping centre, Zoodochou Pigis) is open daily all winter 5pm til late. Contact Xanthe at the Cafe on 24389 or Tracey on 51664, 0937-415216 for further info.
