"Love, Life, Death" at the Library


“Creativity is required for expressing; art is required for creativity," saidMr. Atilla Güllü, who is the coordinator of Bilkent Library Art Gallery. "There are many times that we need to make decisions in our lives. To make the best decision, we should put much more importance on art. We can bring our creativity out only with it.”
Bilkent Library Art Gallery opened its new season on Wednesday, October 13 with an exhibition of new works by outstanding Turkish painter Prof. Sema Ilgaz Temel,         who is an instructor in Faculty of Art of Marmara University and also in Yeditepe University.

Prof. Sema Ilgaz Temel is planning two more exhibitions this year. For her painting is more like an adventure full of surprises.
