Overview
More
The Artistic Village is a family business. The founder and creator of the Artistic Village is Nikolas I. Simiakos. The Artistic Village has been operating since 1984 and we try to highlight various aspects of modern craftsmanship and culture. In the welcoming 600 sq. Metre art gallery you will be able to see innovative art works, ornaments, sculptures, special designs and compositions made from clay, glass, wood, bronze, iron, aluminium and other materials. Any of these pieces would be the perfect choice for a novel gift. Also, in the art gallery/studio, you can see original pictures which will make any space - personal or professional - look its best. The Artistic Village is home to the first museum where visitors can explore the past and learn about the art of ceramics from its beginnings to the present day. Entrance is free. Professionalism, imagination, distinctiveness, uniqueness and our love for the best are our "gold standard" for our long term success. Pay us a visit and discover our collections. The Artistic Village is on the eastern coast of the beautiful island of Rhodes, a few kilometres(20 Km) outside Rhodes town. It is easily reached from anywhere in the town by taking the national road from Rhodes Town to Lindos. Rhodes' "Diagoras" airport is only a 30 minute drive from the village, and Rhodes Town and the harbour are a similar distance away. You will find the Artistic Village between cosmopolitan Afantou and the tourist area of Kolymbia. The ample parking space, and the many outdoor relaxation areas in this beautiful and very pleasant environment, are only some of the facilities on offer to visitors to the Artistic Village.

There were some great pieces of art and some fantastic paintings, most priced out of my league. Nice to watch people at work, in this family run business. If you are looking for a quirky piece then this is the place for you.More
