I am delighted to report that Confluence, where words & images, artists & writers, family & friends, press & (the) public met, on September 15th and then on to Thursday the 20th was a success.
All 250 brochures brought to the venue were, by the last day, taken. So, we can, I hope, safely assume that, over the course of the exhibition, at least 200 people visited us, were engaged, and pleased to have viewed an exhibition as unique as this one was. Thanks for the success of the exhibition go to Mr Akram Miknas, President of Promoseven Holdings, Mr Angus Campbell and the team at Harbour Gate for making it such a success. Thanks also to Chantilly Café Pâtisserie, Bahrain Art Magazine, Behbehani, and Art Hub Bahrain.
From September 16th to 20th lovers of the arts and words will have a unique opportunity to view a collection of canvases that include illustrations, photographs, paintings, sketches, and even an installation all connected to poems or writings that question or challenge, express an emotion, or amuse.
Come, explore the written word with an image that complements it. This is Confluence… And you are invited to visit us any time during the day at Harbour Gate on the second floor.
