Ancient Greeks, Wings of Wax, Easter Greetings

Dear Readers:

San Diego, California’s Timken Museum of Art is currently featuring a unique exhibition that provides a glimpse into a world once inhabited by the ancient Greeks. An Archaeologist’s Eye: The Parthenon Drawings of Katherine A. Schwab explores the famed sculptural reliefs of the Parthenon in Athens. Schwab has brought her combined knowledge of art history and archaeology along with her skills as a fine artist, to address the problem of the legendary works being compromised by weather, pollution, damage and age. For the complete story, please see page 4.

Author and poet Apollo Papfrangou’s recently released novel Wings of Wax follows a 24-year-old Greek American illustrator who lives with his mother and yiayia struggling to meet women as he attempts to find a place for himself in his Greek community. This coming-of-age story takes flight as he travels to Greece for a reunion with his estranged father to fulfill his quest. To learn more about Papafrangou and his character’s journey, see page 6.

Once again, we celebrate our annual tradition of sharing your special Easter greetings with our readers both in print and online at hellenicjournal.org this month. On behalf of the Hellenic Journal Board of Directors and Staff we wish you and yours a very happy Easter.

Christos Anesti!

THIS MONTH’S FEATURE STORY

An Archaeologist’s Eye Exhibition at San Diego’s Timken

The Timken Museum of Art announced its spring exhibition last month, An Archaeologist’s Eye: The Parthenon Drawings of Katherine A. Schwab, which runs through June 5, 2016. 

This exhibition provides a glimpse into a world once inhabited by the ancient Greeks by exploring the famed sculptural reliefs of the Parthenon in Athens. These legendary works have long been compromised by natural age, weather, pollution and damage. Katherine A. Schwab has brought her combined knowledge of art history and archaeology, and her considerable skills as a fine artist, to bear on this problem.
