Art Exhibition and Tourism Festival   6 comments

The Tourism Festival opened in Kas and a few days ago an art exhibition was opened. Many paintings and other artworks were on display in the streets and shops, here are a few of the pictures I took.

A striking painting by the artist Binnur Aydınyurt from Yeşilköy.

Both sides of this street were hung with paintings and photographs.

This corner was full of metal pots, oil lamps, coffee pots and other decorative items which carried on into the square adjacent.

Here were more metal items, ceramics, clothes and paintings.

This guy made glass pendants and other jewellery. You can see his tools at the end of the bench, he made things while you watch.

These colourful lamp shades are made from little pieces of broken glass, they look beautiful all together on a corner in the town.

  1. Looks like it a great exhibition and a good time overall!

  2. It was, thanks for looking.

  3. Oh wow! I would have been tempted to buy that entire shelf full of metal artifacts!!

  4. I thought you might like that one, I’m always tempted to rummage around in it when I walk past.

  5. Hi, love the blog…missing Turkey enormously. I wondered if you might do me a favour. My pal Gavin Hill has made a film about the Turkish super yacht industry. You can see it here http://www.avantemedia.posterous.com. Could you put a link to it…on your site…or even get the BBC code and put it on directly?

    Hope you can help. It would interest Turks and ex pats alike.

  6. Hi George. Just as soon as I can work out how to do it I’ll embed the code, it’s got me beat at the moment*. In the meantime I’ve linked to it on my Facebook page and I’ll put a link on the Turkey Central forum later this afternoon.

    By the way you could do a lot worse than have a look at this website and especially the blog, she writes very nicely

    *Sorry to subscribers who got lots of useless notifications of a new post, I promise to try a bit harder 😉
