You could enter and almost breathe in the air of anticipation and excitement that was building up inside C. John’s gallery. In just a few hours a wonderful reception to celebrate the collaboration of C. John (rare rugs) and Martix would be held and both parties couldn’t contain the excitement for an evening that would come to be memorable.
The evening was hosted by Ms Maria Migadi, owner of Martix a boutique art advisory business that works with extremely fine and very talented artists, promoting and selling their artwork around the world and that now also offers C. John Antique rugs.
The evening entitled “Fine Art meets with Fine Rugs & Carpets” was a sight to behold…the union of art 300 years apart. Where contemporary met with traditional and modern fused with antique, C. John’s Gallery looked wonderful as its walls – home of antique rugs, were dressed with striking modern art pieces and a beautiful, varied collection of carpets were placed artfully around the floor.
As the evening begun and the room filled with artists and designers, a wonderfully warm atmosphere unfolded. Many languages could be heard in conversations round the room, a proof that the world of art both modern and antique reaches every corner of the globe.
The artists featured at the C. John gallery are Sofia Petropoulou, Marianna Veremi, Ermina Avramidou and Konstantinos Damoulakis aka Jamer. With each piece of art displayed, C. John paired a carpet or rug from varying origins and era’s.
Six feature pieces graced the walls, brightly coloured and attractive with much hidden depth. Twelve smaller pieces were placed around the gallery attracting much attention to their detail. On the floor was a large Persian Tabriz light coloured carpet, two art deco pieces originating from France, a beautiful Persian Heriz Runner and a classic blue Chinese antique rug which wowed visitors as they walked down the stairs from the entrance. A Persian silk rug was placed to the side attracting much conversation.
When the reception came to an end and pleased guests departed from the gallery, a feeling of satisfaction remained floating in the air for a delightful evening that had fulfilled everyone’s expectations.
This collection of Art and Rugs will remain on display at the C. John Gallery for the coming month. For further information about the artwork or artists, please contact Maria Migadi – [email protected]
