    The exhibition The wild flowers of Varlamos, organised by the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Greece, presents the works of the painter-engraver Giorgos Varlamos around wild flowers. The exhibition includes 120 works (oils, watercolors, drawings, engravings) and is structured in three sections: Wild Flowers, Meteora and a third section with drawings and engravings from the period of the Dictatorship in Greece. Along with Varlamos' artistic work, the exhibition presents a small part of his workshop: his engraving tools and personal items, which bring his work and action into life.
