Tsavliris Art Exhibition themed “Sea and Shipping” - 2019 May 10

On 5 May 2019, the Tsavliris Cultural Foundation, organised an Art Exhibition, themed "Sea & Shipping" at the Morfi Gallery in Limassol, Cyprus.

The Deputy Minister of Shipping, Ms Natasa Pilides, opened the ceremony and inspired with her words for the future of the shipping industry. She underlined the importance of both synergies and education and expressed her pleasure as the proceeds of the Exhibition will be used to fund a scholarship for a Master's degree (MSc) in "Shipping and Finance", at the Cyprus University of Technology, in Limassol.

The Mayor of Limassol Mr Nicos Nicolaides outlined the importance of the Sea and Shipping for the city of Limassol, while the Director of the Limassol Archive Museum Mr Mimis Sophocleous paralleled the "Wooden Walls" that saved the city of Athens in the ancient times, with the new "Wooden Walls" that have lifted Limassol and in extension Cyprus and its economy. 

Mr George Tsavliris, Honorary President of the Tsavliris Cultural Foundation, in an emotional welcome speech, expressed his family's commitment and love to Cyprus and shared his sentiment of admiration for the people of Cyprus.

The aim of the Tsavliris Cultural Foundation is to promote the spiritual and artistic creativity of people who contribute to the questioning and quest for a better society such as artists, intellectuals, thinkers on civilisation, society, education and  culture.
