Avra Economakos – Greek Islands – Dec. 10, 2003 – 3 stars

Having lived her entire life in Athens, artist Avra Economakos (formally Delehas) found her way to Indiana a year ago. Surprisingly, her work is along the lines of what you would typically expect to find at the Hoosier Salon. Realistic postcard image landscapes of Greece in lifelike colors line the walls of this restaurant. Her approach looks effortless and comfortable - like she could have painted these in her sleep - and are a beautiful addition to the Greek Islands. Her palette is soft, easy on the eyes without utilizing the full chromatic scale, with complementary contrasts - these are perfected, safe and done very well. Five flower pastel images (close cropped) possessed livelier colors and the same ease of execution. Through December, 2003; 317-636-0700. - Mary Lee Pappas
