The gallery's collections feature the visual works of
3,000 artists - most of them Greek, with few exceptions - which are
representative of the trends, foreign influences and fruitful discussions which
have marked the journey of Greek art.

 

It is worth mentioning that half of the artworks which
the gallery presently hosts were acquired between 1930 and 1940.

 

Almost all of the Greek artists who represent
milestones in Greek visual creation and contributed to the formation of 20th
century modern Greek art are represented by significant works in the Gallery's
collection. Among the most positive elements is a collection of engravings
showcasing works by great instructors of this art form, as well as its worthy
successors and new engravers.

 

Athens'
Municipal Art gallery is housed in a neoclassical building on Koumoundourou Square,
built in 1874 based on a design by architect Panagis Kalkos. The Gallery opened
at this location on September 22, 1982, following its move from the Cultural
Centre on Akadimias Street,
where it was situated since 1974.

 

Additionally, educational programmes for children of
preschool, state and high school age take place at the gallery (though not
during summer).

 

The Municipal Gallery's activities include an
exceptionally rich programme of free guided tours of archaeological and other
cultural sites, with themes such as "Old neighbourhoods of Athens", "The Athens
of Kostis Palamas", "The 1st Cemetery", "Acropolis" and many others (the
programme is not conducted during summer)
