Open Galleries Abroad
(International division of Cyprus Open Studios)

Like you, we believe in taking the best of Cyprus abroad and for this reason we are inviting artists and artisans to join us when we showcase the talent and expertise of art from Cyprus-based artists as well as other countries.

Marina Emphietzi keeps a finger on the pulse of art happenings in the United Kingdom and Europe, researches venues, and has interviews with gallery owners and institutions such as the Hellenic Centre, various Embassies and other establishments.

Many galleries and institutions require registration in the year before participation. For this reason we have included an Option on the Registration page on our website so that you may tell us that you would be interested to participate in 2020.

Interested? We will need to know if you are BY 31 July 2019.

Open Galleries Abroad (OGA) undertakes the registration process for the various venues, arranges the transportation between countries and also between the venues, and keeps participating members informed of all developments. This is an enormous opportunity to bring your work to the attention of collectors globally. And we’ve only just begun! We plan to incorporate other countries in the future.

Each year we attempt to get our artists accepted by the Royal Academy of Arts in London where competition is pretty stiff as thousands of artists compete for a place. That is followed by an exhibition at the Salon des Refuses, also in London, which information is supplied to those interested parties.

Marina then attempts, with the artists’ written permission, to obtaining exhibition space at other venues whilst the artworks are kept in storage in London until year end, when the unsold pieces are returned.
