The second in a series of planned exhibitions which aims to showcase local talent and help raise funds for numerous local projects was opened by President Mustafa Akıncı on the 14th of March 2019 – Medical Day. The prestigious Merit Royal Hotel in Alsancak is showcasing the works of Dentist turned artist Zekai Yeşiladalı with an exhibition in it’s shopping arcade, which will run until the 31st of March.
In his opening speech the President fondly spoke of his friendship with the talented Artist – “Zekai became a Dentist and I became an Architect. He became a Painter as well as a Dentist, and I became a Politician in addition to Architecture. Our paths have reunited again after years and I’m proud to open the exhibition, which comprises some beautiful works”.
Mr Akıncı was happy to point out that the exhibition has a social purpose too, with proceeds raised from the exhibition gifted to a local school.
