Gloria Gallery has been actively involved in the island’s art world for 45 years and to celebrate is organising a group exhibition. Some 30 artists will participate in the exhibition, showcasing a large variety of artwork with the inaugural event to be opened on May 26 by the education minister.

“The main goal of Gloria Gallery,” says the gallery, “was and is the promotion of young Cypriot artists but also the showcase of Cypriot art and culture in general. During these 45 years, Gloria Gallery has hosted more than 800 exhibitions.” These have included shows by leading first-generation Cypriot painters including Diamantis, Kanthos, Frangoulides and Paul Georgiou, and second-generation artists such as Lefteris Economou, Christoforos Savva, Stelios Votsis and more.

As an institution that has also welcomed young artists, many now-established painters also held their first exhibitions at Gloria. Besides hosting local and international artists, the Gallery has also organised exhibitions of Cypriot painters abroad over the years. This May and June it invites almost three dozen artists to fill the Gallery walls once more.

From May 26 until June 30, painters of all styles, thematics and ages are participating. The displayed pieces that honour the gallery’s active role within the art world will be by: Susan Vargas, Evgenia Vasiloude, Johannes Van Vugt, George Gavriel, Myria Georgiou, Andreas Efesopoulos, Lisa Zacharova, Doros Eracleous, Glyn Hughes, Kyriakos Theocharous, Umit Inatci, Evagoras Karagiorgis, Demetris Karakasiev, Stavros Kikas, George Kotsonis, Evaggelos Constantelos, Argyris Constantinou, Kikos Lanitis, Arsenti Lisenkov, Eleni Nicodemou, Despo Nicolaidou, Gianna Nicolaou, Lefteris Olympios, Marion Paschali, Myro Skapouli, Leonidas Spanos, Olga Spanou, Rinos Stephani, Christos Foukaras, Mariam Souchanova-Foukara and Katerina Foukara.
