parliament_0

The Hellenic Parliament Foundation and the State Scholarships Foundation co-organize the exhibition titled "I Painted my Future: From the State Foundation's Scholars Art Collection", inaugurated by the President of the Hellenic Parliament Mr. Evangelos Meimarakis.The exhibition presents 40 art pieces made by the State Foundation Scholars either during their attempt to gain scholarship or after their graduation. The State Scholarship Foundation's history of offering scholarships goes long back in 1951, where the Foundation was established. The painting exams involved exercises with colour or 3-dimensional work with a free choice of materials and technique. The examination lasted 5 times with each one taken 4 hours where the delegates had to demonstrate their painting skills, their knowledge, speed in execution by also their imagination.

The selected art pieces presented in the current exhibition involve paintings, practices, portraits, abstract compositions, deathlike nature, designs for theatrical costumes, sculpture and engraving. They constitute a first attempt to present the State Scholarship's Foundation rich art collection, but also depict the real interest that the Greek State shows in actively supporting sciences, art, culture and education.
