Jessica Snow’s current work explores a technique she calls Ionian pointillism, which achieves a fluid effect through applying small dots to a wet canvas. Each morning
she dips her canvas into the sea and works on the beach, allowing the paint to dissolve and swirl in unexpected ways. With each painting, an Ancient Greek goddess
inspires the work — Ios, Demeter, Nyx, and Artemis.

Kate Temple works in the area of installation, painting and drawing and initiates dialogue with the seemingly silent world of nature. The ancient site of Dodona was known for its divinatory practice of listening to the rustling of trees, the sounds and flights of birds and the murmuring of water to determine the correct actions to be taken by people. In the film “Once Upon A Time” she performs one of her drawing practices- a conversation with a tree, sunlight and the wind. In Kephalonia, she is using the same process to create drawings with four trees that figure strongly in the Kefalonian landscape and culture: the oak, the olive, the pomegranate and the lemon.
Black clay objects evoke amulets and devotional objects were placed on trees In Kephalonia for the month to amplify attention and conversation and have been re-assembled in the gallery for viewing.
The work presented is the result of a deep immersion into the quality of Kephalonia and is offered as a reflection and exchange.

Collaboration, Social Justice, and Professional Empowerment: A Multi-Genre Workshop Led by Kristina Marie Darling

Collaboration, Social Justice, and Professional Empowerment: A Multi-Genre Workshop
Led by Kristina Marie Darling

The program is part of the POETRY – LITERATURE 21st CENTURY,applies under the 2023 International Program of the Ionion Center for the Arts & Culture
Program Overview:
Collaborations inevitably lead creative practitioners to reflect on their own voice, aesthetic choices, and their subject position, expanding one’s sense of what is possible in one’s own projects, even when working alone. Set in a gorgeous location in the Ionian Islands, Greece, this workshop will consider collaboration in service of social justice and professional empowerment. The program will be conducted in sites of extreme interest, such as the Medieval Castle & the Ancient Monuments as well in the Kefalonian beaches. We will place a particular emphasis on collaborating with those whose work differs significantly from one’s own in style, genre, perspective, worldview, and/or medium.
