Pro-Art / M. Legakis Gallery was founded in April 2006 by Mirella A. Legakis as a move with an aim to present and support new valuable visual artists, organizing two group exhibitions at the town hall in Chora of Naxos Island and then at the Cultural Center of Holargos municipality with the participation of several young artists. Pro-Art / M. Legakis Gallery started its operation in the neoclassical building of 30 Kallidromiou Street in the center of Athens in December 2006. The gallery's owner, Mirella A. Legakis, is an economist, specializing in marketing administration, with a previous vocation in the field of health. The gallery's main objective is to support and promote young contemporary artists in Greece and abroad. Furthermore, starting a dialogue with the contemporary art scene in Berlin, the gallery presents young and established artists who live and work there, under the auspices of the German Embassy and the Goethe-Institut, as part of cultural relations in the field of art. The criterion of selection for cooperation is the quality of work and basic principle is the respect for independent artistic creation.
