They help us express our Hellenic values, building bridges between cultures, and bring us together regardless of ethnicity, religion, or age.  Greeks must be cultivated to buy and support the Arts, not just making money.

He was the major force in hosting the popular “Holiday Art Exhibition & Sale held on Sunday, December 15th, 2013 at the Stathakion Cultural Center in Astoria.

                “The Greek Artists Guild was formed in 2013 to help promote Greek-American artists from the NY Tri-State area,” explained President Chryssochos. “We are looking for talented artists, graphic designers, comic book artists, sculptors and graphic designers.
