Dammam – For the ninth year in row, Jeddah Atelier for Fine Arts organizes its annual exhibition “Painting in every House” with participation of many Saudi Arabian and Arab artists; the exhibition will kick off on the 25th of October and will embrace many artistic and cultural symposiums over a month.

From his part, Hisham Qandeel, manager of the Atelier praised the recent art exhibition which was held in Cairo organized by the National Association of Contemporary Egyptian Graphic Arts under the same title.

Qandeel considered that the main target of this exhibition is to emphasize the social role that can be played by graphic art especially that a serious intellectual gap exists between the society and the artist.

He added that Jeddah Atelier has been keen to control prices rates of the paintings, which are expected to range between SAR300 and SAR2000 so they can be affordable by everyone in the society.

The exhibition’s manager has also stressed on the importance of this event’s continuance, following the exceptional success achieved by the eight previous editions, which witnessed heavy attendance and purchases, in addition to the large media coverage from the Kingdom and abroad.

The exhibition will be in the participation of many Saudi Arabian artists like Abdullah Al-Shalti, Abdullah Hamas, and Riyad Hamdoun, along with a number of Arabia artists like Dr. Ahmad Nawar, Dr. Mohammad Orabi, and Amina Al Nasser.
