The Tehni art association was founded in Kilkis in 1980 as a branch
of the association of the same name in Thessaloniki. It runs classes in painting,
ballet, piano, and guitar, a 3,000-volume library, exhibitions of rocks, the written
word, and other themes, and a drama group supervised by the actor Dimitris Karellis.
The association owns an exhibition space with two rooms (named after
the Kouros of Europos and Manolis Andronikos), as also a permament collection
of, mainly, paintings, which is made up of works donated by artists who have held
solo exhibitions with Tehni. The permanent collection is in storage, the main
rooms being used to exhibit works by both new and established artists.
