Taverna Rebetika 2017

On Saturday, January 28, Anita Rogers Gallery hosted TAVERNA REBETIKA, a special event celebrating Greece, life, music and art with traditional Rebetiko and Smyrnaiko. 

The gallery was transformed into a 1930s style Greek taverna for this special evening. There was live Greek music from the 1930s, Greek food, unlimited wine and Greek dancing in a traditional setting. Anita sang with Rebetiko group “I Meraklides.” Works by Brice Marden, George Negroponte and Jack Martin Rogers were on view for the event, all whom are either Greek or painted in Greece.
