ALETA MICHALETOS GALLERY was established in 1983. Over the years, many historical and unforgettable art events were held in this light filled, double volume space, which overlooks a sparkling pool in a lush garden.
The space was initially created to function solely as her studio. However by request, solo exhibitions for other artists were presented from 1983 and ALETA MICHALETOS GALLERY was born. She rapidly gained a reputation for her natural artistic flair, her uncanny marketing skills and her meticulous and passionate attention to detail. Soon, her glowing exhibition record and her skills as a first class curator, created such a demand for the enchanting venue and services, that it outweighed what she was able to provide. In addition there was a growing demand for her rare paintings and the strain of singlehandedly transforming a productive artist’s studio into a pristine professional Gallery up to 12 times a year, with the resulting interruptions and disruptions and loss of focus became a severe impediment to her own production.
In 2007 the problem was solved when a cottage on her property was converted into functional and permanent viewing galleries (GALLERIES PETITES) and the bespoke studio, could retain its relaxed and creative atmosphere (STUDIO ILLUMINARE)
