Visiting art galleries is a great way to unwind and get inspired! With a city like Jeddah that breathes culture, it’s places like Athr gallery that offer the art dose you need. A landmark in KSA’s art scene, Athr gallery opens the floor to Middle Eastern and international artists in its stupendous art space.
Based in central Jeddah, this art space also works on a "cultural exchange scheme with international artists and curators as part of its commitment to promoting cultural dialogue between Saudi Arabia and the rest of the world."
Athr gallery is now hosting the 6th edition of “Young Saudi Artists” until December 31st. It showcases the artworks of 110 Saudi-based artists. YSA exposes to the world some of the most talented artists in the Kingdom tackling relevant issues of our present day. So you can expect a medley of different art media, making your visit fun, thought-provoking, and memorable.
The mastermind behind this remarkable art show is woman curator Zahra Dar Bundakji, who has handpicked artworks that bind well together into one space. For a teasing glimpse of the Athr, be sure to check out their website featuring artists’ masterpieces.
