One of the best ways to see great art for free in Athens is to do a gallery walk. You can walk from gallery to gallery checking out some of the best Greek and international art without paying an entrance fee.

One of our faves is Titanium, the Yiayiannos Gallery (Vasilissis Konstantinou Street 44, phone: +30-210-7297-644, fax: +30-210-7251-063), located opposite the infamous Truman Statue. It is open Tuesday through Friday from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The Titanium Yiayiannos Gallery exhibits incredibly innovative art (of various media) by both local and international artists. Recently, the gallery hosted an exhibit of the Swiss artist Sandy Kopitopoulos (see above) that left us in awe.

Through June 2, 2007, the thought-provoking paintings of Haralampos Katsatsidis will be on display.

About the author

In order to keep a promise she and her brother had made to their grandmother (and to simultaneously fulfill one of her own dreams) Kaymaria left her beloved hometown of Oakland, California and headed to Athens in time for the 2004 Olympics. Today, she continues to work and play in the Greek capital, where you may find her writing atop Lykavittos, road-tripping with overseas guests, enjoying Athens cafés with friends, dancing to Greek hip-hop music, or reading Greek subtitles in an outdoor cinema. The daughter of two life-long educators and enthusiastic travelers, Kaymaria has explored North America, Mexico, and Europe. It was not until she spent a year as an exchange student at The University of York in England, however, that she discovered that she does not actually speak English.
