G. & A. MAMIDAKIS FOUNDATION

ART COLLECTION

1993 - 2008


Following in the footsteps of an uninterrupted tradition which stretches back

millennia, which has made Crete a crossroads of cultures, 15 years ago the G. & A.

Mamidakis Foundation began to present the works of leading modern Greek and

international artists to the public.

The G. & A. Mamidakis Foundation Sculpture Gallery seeks to promote modern art to

Greek art lovers and visitors from all over the world.

Today tourism offers a unique forum for the mingling of cultures and for seeking

out the archetypes that link and highlight the common threads in artistic expression.

The Foundation’s Sculpture Gallery houses monumental works by leading sculptors

such as Nicos Alexiou, Magdalena Abakanowicz, Stephen Antonakos, Costas Varotsos,

Giorgos Gyparakis, Theodoros, Vlassis Kaniaris, Rena Papaspyrou, Takis, Costas Tsoclis

and others, which are the result of art symposia on issues such as the ‘New

Mediterranean Identity’, ‘Art in Politics’, ‘Kyprion Plus’, and ‘Chilean Art travels to Crete’.

In addition to its remarkable cultural activities, the Foundation also strongly promotes

organised socially and environmentally responsible activities.

The Foundation’s three pillars -Man, Environment, Culture- match the development

and operating philosophy of our hotel business bluegr, and are fully in line with the

spirit and life values of the founders.

The Foundation plans activities which incite visitors to become participants not simply

spectators, organising quality landscape photography contests, children’s art contests

and revivals of Greek team games. It also focuses on passing down customs and mores

to younger generations, and publishes travel guides for unexplored areas of the

country, archaeological sites and churches, thereby giving travellers the opportunity to

savour virgin areas of the unique country that is Greece.

We invite you to join in the adventure that is a tour of the Foundation’s Sculpture

Gallery.

Enjoy it!
