I went to the Art Centre yesterday to check out the solo exhibition of Bahraini artist Abdulrasool al-Ghayeb. There were around 100 ceramics and sculptures on display. It was quite interesting, however some pieces were a bit mediocre. The exhibition in general lacked a real focus, and looked more like a haphazard collection of the artist's works. The problem with this is that there were some pieces which obviously did not receive the same time and attention by the artist as his other pieces. There were some very intriguing and emotive themes explored, as you can see in the photo above; I just wish the exhibition was limited to the best 25 works, rather than 100.
Final verdict: If you have other plans or are busy, then its probably not worth the effort to try and squeeze this in to your schedule also. However, if you have have a free evening and are looking for something to do then go and have a look.
