Amalia Spiliakou:

10 American Painters

Wednesday 11th of May 2022, 10:00am

PLACE: Panorama Hotel

Why not invite a friend or two to come with you! We shall have both a raffle table and, if there is enough space, a novelty table full of 'JUST-4-U' items. Bring some spare cash so you can splash out a little and spoil yourselves knowing that what you spend will be a 100% philanthropic donation.

Our speaker and IWOG member Amalia Spiliakou was born in Thessaloniki and studied Art History at Northern Illinois University. She was the Host Country Coordinator at Pinewood International School from 1996 until her recent retirement. Amalia will be sharing her insights on 10 American painters.

After a 5,5 km walk, we will drive to the Bird Sanctuary. Following this, we will have lunch at a local taverna. Make sure you have your cameras with you!

May's message


the President of the Board

Kalo Mina Dear friends.

Isn't it wonderful to feel spring in the air, to hear the nightingales and smell the lovely lilac flowers?

I want to thank all of you who attended our meeting in April at the American Farm School. It was truly a wonderful event and many thanks are due to our selfless Diana who organized the raffle and the board members who created the Easter table.

It was a special privilege to have so many members of my family present especially my dear mother Elizabeth Lansdale,who came, all the way from Ecuador.

We were all inspired by the extraordinary piano playing of Alex Zografov and his deeply spiritual words connecting the power of music to each of our lives. As a member of the American Farm School community choir, I would like to invite you to join us in song every Wednesday evening from 8:00 till 9:30pm. Alex is our Maestro and gets those endorphins going.
