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.
The exhibition was followed by a panel discussion, in which four artists took part. The debate was led by Dr. Amal Al-Malki, founding dean of the College of Humanities and Social Sciences.
