Art Space is an exquisite piece of work housed in an ancient wine cellar in Exo Gonia, Santorini. Built with a unique concept, the Art Space is a reflection of the age-old cultural tradition of wine-making combined with international artistic legacy. Established in 1999, the winery was renovated by Antonios Argyros, who has done a fine job in preserving the old wine cellar in its original form. Over 250 Greek and foreign artists have presented their work there so far, transforming the cave interiors with a rich collection of art in all forms.
The gallery is visited everyday by thousands who come to see a different side Santorini, an island that has inspired artists through the ages, an island much different from what the new dynamics of tourism has transformed it into. Wandering through the gallery and admiring the works of art, one can get the strong vapors of the wine wafting through the space. Old tools are displayed as reminders of craftsmanship. The winery has been in the same family for generations. Everything there is a reflection of the past, but a past that has seamlessly merged into the present. The gallery is located on the right side of the road to Kamari.
