Izmir, formerly known as Smyrna, is a historical city lying along the Mediterranean coast of Turkey. I had the pleasure of meeting watercolor artists and art supporters in this beautiful city and doing a demonstration for them at the Izmir Museum of Art and Sculpture (İzmir Resim Heykel Müzesi). I was so delighted to discover this place as the museum is an absolute gem, displaying an impressive collection of paintings and scultures by Turkish artists from the 20th century.
As in Istanbul, I received once again a very warm welcome and incredible hospitality in Izmir by those I met. I would like to express my sincere thank-you for the museum director, Ms. Faden Suzan Kudsioglu for her kind invitation as well as my new Turkish friends who took the time to attend my demonstration. I heard that many more would have come if not on vacation, and I hope I will meet those of you I missed the next time. Teşekkür ederim!
