ABU DHABI, 25th November, 2022 (WAM) — MAKTABA, the library management department of the Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi (DCT Abu Dhabi), has unveiled the second edition of KPL Art Hub exhibition at the Khalifa Park Library.
Young artists from across the UAE will exhibit artworks in painting, sculpture, design, handicrafts and more from 21st November to 22nd December 2022.
For its second edition, KPL Art Hub exhibition will feature artworks created by 28 artists, with eight artists displaying their work every week. The group will change on a weekly basis, providing visitors with a variety of artworks across a range of genres. The exhibition will be accompanied by workshops, artistic events and reading sessions to reach different age groups, offering guests a rich and inspiring cultural experience.
Shaikha AlMehairi, Library Management Director at DCT Abu Dhabi, said, “The first edition of KPL Art Hub exhibition saw the wide participation of young artists from all segments of society. This encouraged us to build on this success and organise the second edition of the exhibition. Organising cultural events that embrace the creativity of youth falls in line with MAKTABA’s strategy to provide a flourishing environment for creativity, one that enhances the cultural and artistic scene in Abu Dhabi. This, in turn, further cements the emirate’s position as a regional hub for culture and the creative arts.”
The exhibition features multimedia works spanning painting in its various forms, including abstract and surrealist painting, graffiti, portraits, digital painting, charcoal drawing, anime drawing, creative photography, design and decorative arts. This is in addition to creative handicrafts such as carpet weaving, candle making, sewing and embroidery.
The exhibition is open to the public from 4 pm to 8 pm from Monday to Thursday until 22nd December 2022.
