gallery openning in Istanbul
- I received the invitation through e mail,
after the 24th hour of Saturday 3rd of May,
and the openning of Gallery Efsun -dedicated to Fusun ,Hikmet's wife
was at the 16th hour of May the 3rd.
(phone lines were not cut off on the EBRUPA side -european marbling side of Istanbul)
Hikmet opened the marbling arts gallery on the EBRASYA side - marblasia !
The 1st exhibiton is Efsun flower design -named after his wife.
It seems I am playing OFF SIDE in the marbling game -Magister Ludi !
Other rumours that have reached my rusted ears:
Ms.Ayla Makas -exhibition of marbled works Tar�k Zafer Tunaya Municipality Gallery
Mr.Yilmaz Enes-exhibition of marbled works in Taksim Municipality Gallery.
Dear Mr.Remzi Koklu,a pioneer in handpapermaking,printmaking,tilemaking,glassartist,
and Ebru teacher at Yildiz Technical University Istanbul said that Yilmaz has come a long way in making Ebru flowers.
Past Saturday I visited Mr.Fuad Baser's Ebru workshop by the Lil' St.Sophia Mosque,
there were quiet a few victims ! learning how to marble.
In any case I hid my shaving foam and creams,
you never know when the
Ebru perverts may strike!
If anyone lose their marbles,
come my way !
I am still making combed glass marbling!
Wishing you what you wish yourselves,
