"Seeking the Ancient Kallos" Exhibit, NYC

  • Written by 

"Seeking the Ancient Kallos" exhibit will be hosted by The Consulate General of Greece in New York City, from April 10th to May 2nd, 2014.

Its creator is renowned American photographer J. Joshua Garrick. The exhibition's designer is artist Marios Voutsinas, while its curator is gifted art historian Iris Kritikou.

Imagery of ancient Greek statues printed on aluminum will be on display. The authentic technique used, grants the prints an essential tangible element. Garrick's pieces portray intimate details of Greek artifacts, due to his use of an exceptionally sensitive camera lens. The pictures are printed on uniquely treated DiBond aluminum that administers a cutting-edge method, allowing the images to pop out at the viewer.

Previously offered at the National Archaeological Museum in Athens and Sismanoglio Megaro at the Greek General Consulate in Istanbul, Turkey, the exhibition garnered rave reviews. Garrick has studied Ancient Greek civilization for a long period of time. His favorite museum is the National Archaeological Museum of Athens.

Garrick holds a Master's degree in Fine Arts from Columbia University. Most of his work centers around Ancient Greece. The nation has recognized him with exceptional access to Greece's most historical museums, sites and monuments.

Joshua Garrick coined his work "Seeking the Ancient Kallos", as a tribute to the classical beauty of Greek art and design. Exhibition hours are Monday through Friday, between 9:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., with free admission.
