LAST Thursday, an art exhibition organized by King Abdul Aziz University's (KAU) Home Economics Department (Islamic art division) was hosted by the Serafi Mega Mall in Jeddah, showcasing the talent of 12 undergraduate students.
“The exhibition today aims to highlight two things: creative art and the techniques used to create art,” said Dr. Effat Abdullah Faddaq, the chairperson of the Islamic art department at KAU.
The guest of honor at the exhibition was Dr. Hannan Abdul Al-Salam Jambi, the Vice Dean of the Home Economics department at KAU, who inaugurated the exhibition and was full of praise for the students' work.
She went around and asked all the students about their paintings and the inspiration behind their artwork. The sponsor of the exhibition was notable Saudi businesswomen Nawal Mohammed Al-Amoudi.
The exhibition showcased more than 40 pieces of art work on a variety of issues including questions of identity, authenticity and particularly along the theme of Prince Khaled Al-Faisal's poetry. The creations stressed color, human presence and the all-important emotion of love.
“Everyone is creative in their own right, and the most important aspect of this exhibition is that every student's imagination and the outcome of that imagination is different from the rest,” said Effat Faddaq.
“It is extremely important that we encourage this kind of diversity and expose this outflow of creativity to the public. I hope my students will progress to a level where they will be able to place Saudi art and artists amongst some of the best in the world.”
“I enjoyed this exhibition because the students did a great job and illustrated what they felt,” said Hannan Jambi.
“They understood themselves and put their emotions and thoughts out on the canvas in front of people.”
