Watercolor Art Exhibition by Meriel Cooper

Watercolor Art Exhibition by Meriel Cooper
Opening Wednesday, 13th March : 6pm to 9pm
Exhibition runs from Thursday, 14th March to Saturday, 16th March: 10am to 6pm.

“I feel there is quite enough misery in the world so the overall aim of my work is to bring joy into my client’s lives.  Few things give me more pleasure than when someone emails me from a foreign land and tells me that a commissioned or purchased piece has given them pleasure for years.  What greater reward.”

Meriel uses watercolor and mixed media to paint large, rich and colorful images of Bahrain, still lifes, flowers and other natural shapes.

Born in England, Meriel grew up on the foothills of Mount Kenya and later lived in North Africa, America and Bermuda.  She has been living in Bahrain since 2005.

Her work can be found in private collections in the US, the UK, Bermuda, Germany, France, the Netherlands and Bahrain.  In January 2014 she was honored by being selected for the 40th Fine Arts Exhibition in Bahrain.

The Wound is Where the Light Enters- Rumi   An Exhibition of Mystical Tattoo Designs by Karima Sharabi

The Wound is Where the Light Enters- Rumi An Exhibition of Mystical Tattoo Designs by Karima Sharabi

The Wound is Where the Light Enters- Rumi
An Exhibition of Mystical Tattoo Designs by Karima Sharabi

Saturday, 2nd March to Wednesday, 6th March: 10am to 6pm

Karima’s journey with Arabic lettering began when a friend in Peru asked her to create a tattoo with his daughter’s name in Arabic. As she considered various designs, she began to see how the Arabic letters could be molded and shaped into recognizable forms. The movement of the letters could capture the sentiment of the word and express the profundity of the Arabic language. 

The immediate response from the public after posting images of her work on Instagram was unprecedented. She had followers from all over the world requesting tattoo designs, some simple and others multifaceted; receiving the most interesting and moving stories with numerous requests; stories of struggle and overcoming obstacles, lost love and sickness. In a sense, Karima’s calligrams became a totem to each of its owners - a mark of an important life change and permanent reminder of their strengths and virtues and of seeing ‘the light’.

The pieces presented in this exhibition, The wound is where the light enters are Arabic calligrams inspired by the works of eastern spiritualists like Hafiz, Rumi, and Khalil Gibran as well as Native American leaders who understood the sanctity of nature and their surroundings.  These calligrams combine the beauty of Arabic lettering, which is most often associated with Islamic design, with other religious and cultural symbols.

A photograph is a deeply intimate look at the subject being photographed; it is a discovery of the person behind the lens too. Through specially curated photographs by Mahmood Al-Yousif we get a glimpse of the artist beyond his blogging fame. These photographs were taken over several years in locations from Seoul, South Korea to Vancouver Island, BC, Canada, and Moscow to Cape Town in South Africa and through them Mahmood shares his love of people, nature, customs and traditions.

2, 6, 7, 11 Red Heaven - an Art Exhibition with Eskander Dewani

2, 6, 7, 11 Red Heaven - an Art Exhibition with Eskander Dewani

Wednesday, April 4th: 7pm to 9pm
Thursday, April 5th to Saturday, April 7th:10am to 6pm

Navigating through different facets and forms of art - painting, illustration and poetry - Eskander continues to discover and evolve within all these realms of expression and creativity.  His contemporary portraits are at once arrestingly lifelike and gothically evocative, conveying a sense of immediacy in each piece, as they draw you into the canvas.  The red background swallows all the surrounding and takes you to the very centre of the moody, weathered expressions worn by these women.  They invoke a gut reaction, which differs from each perspective.

There is an undeniable strength in the women Eskander conceives, as well as a deep rooted sense of respect, courage, empathy and natural beauty.

Eskander cites the work of Gustav Klimt, Francesco Clemente and Lucian Freud as influences on his work as well as the love of music that varies from day to day.

Guise Maggi Exhibition

10:00 AM10:00

Guise Maggi Exhibition

Artist Giuse Maggi will present her latest collection of sustainable art including functional objects and wall hangings inspired by the rich heritage of the Arab tradition and the colors of the Bahraini landscape.

Born and raised in Italy, Giuse Maggi is a multidisciplinary artist who loves to explore materials and their potentiality with antique and new techniques.

Giuse has been working with glass for two decades until a few years ago she discovered the world of recycling and sustainable art; since then she has been combining plastic, metals and fibers with her beloved glass, experimenting weaving and basketry techniques.

Her process involves an intense labor: she builds objects that have been generated by the accumulation of countless small acts. Through repetition and endless variations, her inner thoughts unfold into an emerging form. 

Her paintings, rugs, baskets and sculptures are a challenge and represent an intimate desire of beauty in everything is discarded and neglected by humanity.

“Making” becomes a spiritual process, a ritual that links her soul to objects.

Giuse Maggi has exhibited her work in many solo and group exhibitions in Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Italy. She currently lives in the Kingdom of Bahrain working as a fulltime artist.

All are welcome!

Your Face is Not You - An Art Exhibition with Dalal AlSindi

Just imagine living in a world without mirrors. You'd dream about your face and imagine it as an outer reflection of what is inside you. And then, when you reached forty, someone put a mirror before you for the first time in your life. Imagine your fright! You'd see the face of a stranger. And you'd know quite clearly what you are unable to grasp: your face is not you. ― Milan Kundera, Immortality

Dalal AlSindi's expression in her first solo exhibition expresses the lack and fullness of ego we suffer as individuals. Her practice as an art therapist has a deep effect on her work in terms of psychological expression and rawness seen in her paintings.  Establishing the first art therapy centre in Bahrain in 2012, the Art Therapy Centre,  Dalal offers an international approach to art therapy tempered with a local understanding and appreciation of Bahrain’s culture and people.

The Faces of Eskander - An Art Exhibition with Eskander Dawani

As a British-Bahraini artist, Eskander Dawani's journey has been one of discovery and definition as he paints with the clashing colors of both worlds.

While navigating through the many facets and forms of art that have both emboldened and enriched his searching of self, Eskander has drawn from diverse sources that not only come from the realms of painting, but from the resonating influences of music, writing, poetry and fashion, all of which come to life upon the canvas. He has also been greatly influenced by a number of celebrated artists, such as poet and musician Leonard Cohen, to Japanese writer Haruki Murakami, and Italian-born artist Francesco Clemente.

Eskander’s collection of contemporary portraits are painted mirrors that reflect back the illusion of self and his combined passions, observations and interpretations of how people dress and adorn themselves in makeup and the masks they wear. We invite you to the mysterious world of Eskander Dawani, a place of stillness that comes alive before you, as he breathes life into a world of portraits through the inertia of examination.
