Description

The Municipal Gallery ‘L. Kanakakis' was founded in 1992. It is housed in a Venetian building at the old city centre of Rethymno, below the Fortezza fortress and the Archaeological Museum. Its permanent collection includes paintings of Leuteris Kanakakis (oil, drawings, aquarelles) covering all his work. The work of various contemporary artists is also presented, depicting a wide spectrum of the Greek modern art since the 1950's. In 1995, Rethymno became part of the National Cultural Urban Network and, as a result, the Centre of Contemporary Art was founded. The Centre of Contemporary Art organizes periodic exhibitions of local, national and international interest, in collaboration with many organizations in Greece and abroad. All events are accompanied by parallel activities (lectures, educational projects, seminars etc). The Gallery's activities include the printing of catalogues and other publications of educational or informational character. Since 1995, art workshops are organized with the support of the Gallery.
