The thematic activity of visual arts visits along two axes, resumes for 2nd year exclusively for SNFCC Members!
Delta is the fourth letter of the Greek alphabet. It is a triangle with its 3 sides in complete harmony. Just like Delta Restaurant. A project built on 3 basic principles: Gastronomy, Sustainability, Culture.
Based on the cultural component of its operation, Delta Restaurant is extending its collaboration with ARTWORKS for a second year, aiming to highlight the works of contemporary Greek visual artists in the space of the restaurant. The artworks, changing every year, are organically integrated into the site as part of the setting. Expanding on the concept of sustainability, Delta Restaurant is calling upon us to think of art as part of a diverse ecosystem of interdependent constituents.
In this context, and after the success of last year's event series, the SNFCC Membership Program resumes the thematic activity of visits organized exclusively for the SNFCC Members in collaboration with ARTWORKS and Delta Restaurant, between November 2022 and April 2023. The visits are structured along two parallel axes: one takes place at Delta Restaurant, where monthly guided tours will acquaint SNFCC Members with the works of the 6 featured artists; the other takes place beyond the walls of the SNFCC, at the personal studios, or in galleries exhibiting the works, of these up-and-coming visual artists.
During our visits to Delta, we will be talking with representatives of the restaurant, ARTWORKS and the SNFCC about the initiative and philosophy behind this collaboration, and will be touring the site of the restaurant hosting selected works by the 6 featured artists (fellows). During our visits to the artists’ studios, we will have the unique opportunity to get to know them in person and talk with them, as they will be welcoming us to their private workplace or exhibition space.
During our visits to Delta Restaurant we will tour on the following artists’ works :
Iris Touliatou, Vasilis Papageorgiou, Antonis Theodoridis, Giorgos Kontis, Maria Mavropoulou, Zoi Gaitanidou
During our visits to the studios, we will have the opportunity to meet the artists Iris Touliatou, Vassilis Papageorgiou, Antonis Theodoridis, George Kontis and Maria Mavropoulou.

This thematic activity is dedicated to all SNFCC Members who love Art and Culture, and wish to delve deeper into the concept of visual artistic creation and its practice, in every form. It is also aimed at all those interested in getting to personally know contemporary representatives of the domestic visual arts scene.
Delta Restaurant was created upon the initiative and grant of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF), aiming to serve as a model culinary destination worthy of the high standards of the SNFCC, while at the same time showcasing Greek cuisine to a worldwide audience. Delta Restaurant was awarded the Restaurant & Bar Design Award 2022 in the category “Europe – In Another Space.” In September 2022, after nearly 1 year of operation, it accomplished to earn two MICHELIN stars and one MICHELIN Green Star.
ARTWORKS was created in 2017, thanks to a founding grant by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation, aiming to provide fertile ground for the creation of Greek artists.
