For the second time, the first was in 2014, Qatar Foundation is organizing a fine art event called QF Art Atelier. It is a creative platform for local artists to showcase their work.
The 2014 event, which was also affiliated with International Artist Day, was attended by fifteen artists. It received tremendous publicity from the art community as well as the State of Qatar and it is expected the 2016 event will have even greater impact and success.
Their 2nd event in 2016 will feature ten artists, who will work in a live studio.
It will be themed Art in Action and will last for an entire week from October 20th to 27th.
During Art in Action each artist will receive two canvases and supplies to create their work.
Their Art Clique on October 25th will coincide with International Artist Day – a day the iAD celebrates contributions artists make to society. The QF event will include an intimate gathering of all the artists who will sit down to discuss art culture in the State of Qatar, art history, and various aspects of the art industry that affect the art community.
The Art in Action exhibition will open on October 30th in the AaQool Atrium, Community & Recreation Center, Qatar Foundation – Education City and run until November 11th.
