At Cube Gallery we love to "share the art …" every December but also throughout the year, because “sharing is caring”. Therefore, this year’s art project "Once Upon a Time”, on which the special collaborators of the gallery created their artworks, offers the chance to acquire a unique piece of art at a fair price and in addition to supporting children in need, as part of the proceeds will go to SOS Children's Villages.
Driven by the principle that art is not a luxury but a commodity, we introduced the art platform "we share the art ..." 8 years ago, with the aim of communicating contemporary art to the general public through actions and projects. At this year's art project "Once Upon a Time” Cube's new and former artists meet, consciously believing that art is addressed to everyone, and consider equally important both the acquaintance with art and the acquisition of a work of art by everyone.
The outcome of this gathering is original works (painting, photography, art objects) at a fair price. The exhibits will be available for immediate purchase and will be renewed, if necessary, throughout the project.
The idea of the title, as well as the concept, sprang to Liana Zoza’s mind, the curator of the project, from the desire to present visual stories either inspired by existing ones in our well-known fairy tales, or by a personal story of every artist involved! After all, as Yiannis Tsarouchis used to say:" It is only through fairy tales that people are conquered. ".
