"We see throughout Greek cities and the islands that sculpture in particular is a language that reveals, in abstract and figurative ways, the passions and objectives of the people. Through collaboration with Greek sculptors, we could share with them ideas about techniques and the importance of the role of public art in our respective countries today. The title of the exhibition, "Magic Carpet Ride," represents an ongoing discussion about the relationship between our two cultures. Comprised of works by twelve Athenian and seventeen Pacific Rim sculptors, the exhibition of small sculptures may offer some clues as to what is of concern to all of us as artists in a world that reflects more turmoil than stability."

- Kati Casida, Sculptor, San Francisco Bay Area
