I'm on the look out for something special to decorate one empty and boring wall in my Living room. And because I have a limited budget for it, I decided to pass by Gallery Tilal's Art Mania Exhibition. More than 40 artists, a couple of galleries, and some collectors participated in the exhibition to present a huge selection of original paintings, prints, sculpture and photography all under one roof and at affordable prices. The most expensive pieces were selling for KD 400 (around $1,411). The exhibition is aiming to entice art lovers to start collecting art pieces by established and emerging artists. I didn't end up buying one because I was overwhelmed by the choices and was a bit distracted by the crowd. So I'm definitely going there for a second visit with the family so that we can decide what to get there and then.
If you're interested, the exhibition will continue until 13th December, 2012. Gallery Tilal is located at Al Tilal Complex in Shuwaikh. Their opening hours are from 10am-2pm and from 5.30am-9.30pm. Saturdays by appointment only.
You see what I mean when I said I was distracted by the crowd? Check out this Celine trapeze handbag, lovely color combo!
