(DESPARDES/PKONWEB) — An exhibition displaying the works of 17 contemporary Pakistani artists began yesterday at the Omani Society for Fine Arts (OSFA) in Muscat.
The art show titled “Spectrum” is open until April 12 from 10am to 1pm and 5pm to 8pm at OSFA, Al Sarooj, behind Al Shatti Cinema.
Spectrum feature a wide range of fine artworks, including genres of figurative, landscape, abstract, contemporary and Quranic calligraphy.
It is aimed at reinforcing ties between the two nations, as well as to showcase incredible artwork from some of the finest artists in Pakistan and engage art enthusiasts in the Omani capital with the country’s cultural and artistic landscape.
“We have held five such art exhibitions in the past six years, in which some 52 artists from Pakistan have presented their artworks at OSFA and conducted workshops and lectures on art as well,” said one of the members of the organizing committee.
“This exhibition provides a new platform for all the art lovers from both Oman and Pakistan to come together and celebrate the true colors of joy,” the member added.
Mariam Al Zadjali, OSFA Director, endorsed the event as an opportunity for artistic dialogue and interaction between art and society in Muscat, while hoping the 2018 edition of the event would be as successful as the last one.
Similar to previous exhibitions, the proceeds from Spectrum will be donated to a social cause in the Sultanate. This year, the proceeds will go to the Oman Autism Society.
