Dar Al Atta's "Art for Atta" (Art for Giving) exhibition was inaugurated last night at the Bait Al Zubair museum in Muscat. 57 artists have contributed a total of 172 pieces for the exhibit. The artists are donating 50% of the sales to Dar Al Atta.
We attended the opening reception last night and recommend it highly to everyone. By the end of yesterday's a large percentage of the works were already sold or reserved, but there were still many beautiful items still available. All the pieces will remain on display till the end of the exhibition which will last till September 22nd. Timings are: Saturday to Thursday 9.30am till 1pm and 4 to 7pm. An enterance fee is charged, but it allows you entry to both the museum and the exhibition.
We fancied ourselves art collectors and laid down a not-so-small chunk of change on a large piece of digital art by Hilal Al Harthy and 2 beautiful framed photographs of Omani doors by H.E. Mohammed Al Zubair. The Muscatis, henceforth, art connoisseurs.
