We are excited to announce that our new Art-a-Pelago Gallery, Lesvos, will be open for the first time for a Second Saturday event on Saturday April 8th from 6-9pm. Lesvos Gallery is located in Loose Leaf Pages, the new tea and bookshop at 627 Main Street Honesdale.
Lesvos Gallery will be doing a special expanded show of Yanni Glykokokalos’s art and some special works of Pauline Glykokokalos that we are excited to exhibit to the public. The WCAA is honored to recognize Yanni’s tremendous body of work over his lifetime as we mark his recent passing. Yanni Glykokokalos was a founding member and driving force behind the Wayne County Arts Alliance. We look forward to seeing you at Art-a-Pelago Gallery on Second Saturday as we celebrate a local artist’s lifework.
Photography by David Soete
David is a retired senior resource specialist formerly with the Upper Delaware Council (UDC), a nonprofit oversight organization responsible for the implementation of the River Management Plan for the Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River, a unit of the National Park System. His photos are used regularly by many local, state, regional, and federal agencies, and nonprofit organizations, such as the UDC, National Park Service, Delaware River Basin Commission and Delaware Highlands Conservancy.
A native of Honesdale, PA, David has a background in forestry and natural resources and prefers photographing nature and wildlife, often in his own backyard. “I have always loved nature, so I guess it’s only natural to want to capture it in photos,” says David.
“Photographing birds is probably my favorite. Bald eagles and male wood ducks are awesome, but birds at my backyard feeder are much easier to photograph.” Locally, David’s photos are on display at Alley Whey and DJ Harvey Agency both located on Main Street in Honesdale.
Paintings by Ioannis Glykokokalos
Ioannis Glykokokalos, better known as Yanni, was born and raised on the Greek island of Lesvos where he was exposed from an early age to the rich visual, musical and mystical heritage of the Eastern Orthodox Church.
After earning an engineering degree in Athens he moved to New York City in 1959 where he resided until the mid 80’s. It was there that Yanni honed his artistic vision and became part of the historic New York abstract expressionist movement. In 1975 he earned a BFA from the Philadelphia College of Art and began showing in such galleries as Brata, Betty Parsons and at the Phillips Collection in Washington, DC.
Yanni lived the consummate bohemian artist lifestyle in the Lower East Side of NYC during the controversial 60’s through the 80’s. In 1986 he relocated his frame shop and studio to Honesdale and continues to paint and show till the present day.
