Margaret Tsirantonakis: Anthos Paintings
“Anthos” means flower in Greek, and flowers in all their stages and glory are the subjects of Margaret Tsirantonakis’ upcoming exhibition of paintings at New Canaan Library. “The flower is a springboard as well as an actor in the ensemble of each of my paintings and works on paper,” states Ms. Tsirantonakis, a native of Greece who lives and works in Stamford, CT. Anthos will be on display in the H. Pelham Curtis Gallery from December 8 – January 12.
Margaret Tsirantonakis’s most recent solo exhibition was in March 2013 at the Prince Street Gallery, NYC where she exhibited large scale paintings of interiors with still life arrangements as well as intimate watercolors done in Crete. Tsirantonakis has exhibited widely in solo and group exhibitions throughout the Northeast. She has had two previous solo shows at the H. Pelham Curtis Gallery in 2002, and 2004.Her paintings have been included in the Mead Art Museum, Amherst, MA, Off the Beaten Track: Contemporary Mindscapes, as well as in The Elements: Earth show at the Gallery of Contemporary Art, Sacred Heart University, CT.
