403 7th & D Sts. NW, Washington, D.C. (1985-1991)
In 1985 Zygos founded Zygos Gallery, its American branch in the U.S.A. (1985-1991) aiming to actively promote the work of contemporary Greek artists in Washington D.C., the U.S. Capital.
Located at 403 7th and D Streets NW, a few blocks away from the National Gallery, the Hirschhorn Museum and the Museum of American Art, in a magnificent set of five buildings called Gallery Row, and directed by Ion Frantzeskakis, Zygos Gallery was one of the first art galleries in the U.S. dedicated to an "ethnic" origin of art, something that has become almost a trend today.
In the course of the six years of its operation, Zygos Gallery organized the following exhibitions:
American and International Artists:
Hellenic Fine Arts Today
Aspects of Contemporary Religious Painting in Greece
Four Greek Engravers
Represented in Group Shows:
