Meet a Corfiot Writer

Nikos Parginos, a promising Corfiot writer, presents his latest book displayed below.

(Sorry friends, the book is in Greek!)

Check out this place to read his recent interview (in English) soon.

Nikos is also in Facebook, you can go and search for him!

Now, I'll give you just the beginning of the interview, to get a taste of him. Here it goes:

"Tell us about yourself first.

I was born in 1971 and grew up in Corfu. I have studied in Patras Polytechnic and I currently work at the Municipality of Thinalion as an Engineer. I live with my family in Corfu, which is the place I love and the place that is a permanent source of inspiration for my writing."

More about Nikos next time...

Thanks for visiting!

Art event IN CORFU


Last evening I attended the opening of the Painting and Photography exhibition at TENEDOS gallery in Corfu town.

The even was a big success! There were so many people there that they had to get inside in turns to see the exhibits.

The painter, Giorgio Turchetti, displayed both conventional and abstract art in oils, acrylics and crayons, showing his expertise in all mediums.

The photographer, Christos Koulouris, displayed a fantastic range of artwork that stimulate imagination and stir up the inquisitive mind.

More on this event later on, along with the interviews of the artists (which I hope to get!).

This picture shows three of the paintings of Giorgio Turchetti.

If you happen to be on the island, pop in to see this display, you won't miss! The Gallery is located at the old port of the town and
within easy reach of the center-everything is nearby.

AGIS XOMERITAKIS, the well known Corfiot painter, was there too.
