Tinian Artists Museum
Tinian Artists Museum: The Tinian Artists Museum is located next to the church of Panagia Evangelistria. Founded in 1930, the museum displays works of the island's finest artists, many of whom studied with the financial aid provided by the Holy Foundation of Evangelistria. Most of the works which are on display here were brought by the foundation while the rest of are donated by the artists themselves, as a token of gratitude for the scholarships.
Among these works, you can see paintings by N.Gyzis, Nikephoros, Nikolaos and Periklis Lytras, G.Roilos, M.Renieris and sculptures and reliefs by Y. Chalepas, L. Sochos, D. Philipotis, G. Vitalis, Lazaros and Markos Fytalis and Ioannis Vougalis. In the same room is also located the Art Gallery of Modern Greek Artists with copies of great Renaissance works by Velasquez, Veronese, and others.
Another room nearby houses the vestry, a small ecclesiastical collection and the famous Carta of Rigas Ferraios. There is also a library here full of rare books and manuscripts. If all the walking around gets you hungry, remember that the museum has two cafes, a snack bar in the shady and pleasant courtyard and a tavern opposite the bus station.
