Details / Information  Overview:

The Municipal Gallery “L.Kanakakis” was founded in 1992. From its beginning, the Municipal Gallery was housed in a Venetian Building in the centre of the old, historical town of Rethimnon, below the Fortezza and the Archaeological Museum. Its permanent collection includes works of Lefteris Kanakakis (oil paintings, drafts and aquarelles) thus representing all the stages of his achievements and works of contemporary Greek artists, thus covering a wide spectrum of modern Greek art as it has been accomplished from 1950 until today. In 1995, the town of Rethimnon was incorporated into the National Cultural Network and, as a result the Centre for Contemporary Art. Since 2002 functions within the framework of Visual Art Network - The domain of culture. The Rethimnon Centre for Contemporary Art is initiating dynamic activities in the field of periodic exhibitions of local, national and international interest in co-operation with many agencies in Greece and abroad. All events are accompanied with lectures, training programmes, speeches, seminars, etc. The exhibition activities of the Rethimnon Centre for Contemporary Art-Municipal Gallery “L.Kanakakis” will be concluded with the issue of catalogues and other printed material of educational and informative nature. At the same time, visual art workshops, have been operating under the auspices of the R.C.A. since 1995.
