It's All Square - Opening Night & SCRF

I am living an arty month right now....everything here is so arty than ever before! and I am loving it!!!

Going around looking for art and art-related has been quite nice an experience for me. Something new...it's as if I have devoted a month completely for it...of course daily routine does seep in but that's normal, right! I look at "What's on in the U.A.E" in the Tabloid everyday and off we go every now and then...and my hubby has been so supportive than ever before...may be that's the benefit of being away for a while :p 

The 'Best' part three of my illustrations have been selected for an Exhibition here...it's called - "It's All Square" [It's even listed in the ARTMAP by Art Dubai (Dubai Culture and Arts Authority)]. It's being curated by The Domino and hosted by the prestigious thejamjar gallery. I am super-excited about it. 21st April was the Opening night!!! It was great to be a part of the exciting event...just to feel the vibe of all the arty folks around...simply superb!!! Thanks to Fathima Mohiuddin, the Founder & M.D of The Domino and her bro, Dhanesh Mohiuddin, who inspired her to take on such an ambitious and full-filling task. I must say it's a great venture!

The exhibition will run until 12 May ad if you are anywhere near Dubai, do drop by and enjoy & experience the arty vibes yourself :)
