Mohammed al-Melehi Exhibition

Saturday, May 08, 2004

As part of my blog, I'm going to try to post information about interesting events taking place around the island (mostly taken right out the "What's On" section of the GDN). I'll also let you know what I thought about any of the events that I did get a chance to attend.

So, the first event I want to cover is the solo exhibition of the Moroccan artist Mohammed al Melehi. It's taking place at the Al Riwaq Art Gallery in Adliya. The timings are 10am-1pm and 4pm-8pm. The exhibition will run until 15 May, so you have a week left to visit it. It's free and open to the public.

The paintings are really interesting. I'm no art critic so don't expect any big words or deep analyses out of me. However I did leave with a good feeling. I think there are about 16 or 17 of his paintings featured in the exhibition, all of which explore a similar theme. As you can tell from the photo above, there are alot of very bright cheerful colors used to fill in the shapes created with straight lines, arcs, waves, and occasionally small stars. All of the paintings, to me, evoked images of mountains, or the clouds in the sky, or a sea bed. They are very playful, visually pleasing, and very accessible to all people. Well, certainly go down and have a look... I'm sure you will leave smiling.

Al Riwaq Art Gallery is right next Zoe's in Adliya, I think, on Osama bin Zaid Avenue. Click this link for a map of how to get to Zoe's. Al Riwaq's phone number is 17 717 441.
