Eleni Marneri Gallerie is housed in a unique space, a stone’s throw from the Acropolis Metro Station, which used to be an urban villa of antiquity, while the ancient findings still preserved under the glass floor for you to admire are very characteristic. Minimal logic and love for art are two of the key features that welcome you from the first minute in the space philosophy that combines harmoniously the old with the modern. The star here the jewel: Contemporary art jewellery itself, whether applied art form, microsculpture, or craft, is above all a form of wearable art that adorns the body and is an eloquent means of self-expression not only for the artist but also for the wearer. Eleni Marneri collaborates mainly with top Greek artists while the visitors can see and buy of course her collections.
At the same time, this philosophy that envisions art's infiltration into everyday life is also suggested in a series of products of rare utilitarian and aesthetic value available at the gallery, such as the exquisite skincare products, soaps, and unguents of the Officina Profumo Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella , one of the world's oldest pharmacies, established in Florence in 1612 (unique selling point in Greece), the Greek Baruti perfumes, the French Geodesis candles that their scents travel us around the world, as well as award-winning Greek brands, modern souvenirs, SOPHIA Homeware & Stationary items etc.
Check out the international and highly interesting traveling contemporary jewellery exhibitions that make a "stop" at the gallery. Also, from time to time the works by Greek artists, already renowned or newcomers, are hosted in occasional art exhibitions here.
