Paintings and installations, created in the authentic Arabian style, will open the world of Arab art to you.
The special feature of Majlis Gallery is that unlike other exhibition halls focused on avant-garde and modern styles, it prefers the traditional Arab contemporary trends of painting and sculpture.
Visit the exhibition, and you will see artistic work of beginners and famous artists.
The Gallery building bears a slight tinge of antiquity. Majlis Gallery first opened its doors in the late 1980-s. Today it attracts the true lovers of the Arabic art, who meet like-minded people to share their views and discuss the impressions.
Many young artists dream of the Majlis Gallery. To have an exhibition here is a good ambitious for success and development in the field of painting and sculpture.
Majlis Gallery is open from Saturday to Thursday from 09:00 to 13:30 and from 16:30 to 20:00. Friday — the day off.
Where to do?
The main goal of the Majlis Art Gallery is to promote local artists on the international level.21
