Works of 50 artists on display at ‘Oman in Heart of Kuwait’

KUWAIT: Oman Ambassador to Kuwait Saleh Al-Kharusi said the art exhibition “Oman in the Heart of Kuwait” highlights the importance of coordination among the cultural and artistic institutions of the Sultanate of Oman and the State of Kuwait. The exhibition reflects the deep-rooted historical relations between the two countries, he told KUNA after inaugurating the event.

The exhibition, which opened at the Kuwaiti Syndicate of Media and Artists on Saturday under auspices of Ambassador Al-Kharusi, gathered artistic works of nearly 50 Omani artists. Chairman of Kuwait’s Syndicate of Media and Artists Dr Nabil Al-Failakawi reaffirmed the Syndicate’s support for arts inside and outside Kuwait, saying “We are keen on building bridges of cooperation and communication with all artists in the Arabian Gulf region.”

The agenda of the exhibition includes an art show, a poetic symposium and a music seminar on Monday, Dr. Al-Failakawi noted. On her part, Lyali Al-Ghareibi, an Omani formal artist, said she is participating in the show with a painting of a caring and passionate sister in the traditional Omani garb “to highlight our national identity.”
