TII Hosts Art Exhibition in Celebration of International Women's Day

13 Apr 2017

An art exhibition was recently held in honor of International Women's Day, celebrating the work of nine prominent Qatari artists. Their works explored various themes, and aimed to present a true depiction of the everyday challenges they face as Qatari women and as mothers. The paintings wove different forms of expressionism and calligraphy, to reveal a story about struggle, triumph, and liberty. Other common themes presented by the artists' paintings included culture and beautiful representations of local attire.
