Sometimes life prepares very nice surprises for us. This is a recount of my recent adventure.
I was asked to mount a photo exhibition at the Animal Kingdom Mara’ee 2019 Show in Bahrain on a very short three week timeline. My first thought was that this was unrealistic. However, the challenge was tempting, and with the capable professionals from Pico Bahrain, the task was undertaken. The parameters of the exhibition were decided upon. Photos from the favorite horses of kings and monarchs were chosen. These included some from the Andalusian, Lusitano, Freisian, Arabian and Marwari breeds. Foto Grafika provided their priceless help in the preparation of files for large prints. The hosts took care of the decorations and the enlargements made on acrylic medium (some as large as two meters!).
Congratulations to our hosts on their wonderful handling of the nine invited artists, working in a variety of mediums, and from various parts of the world. All work focused on the selected horse topic and was beautifully displayed. The white painted walls were a perfect backdrop for the paintings and sculptures. The photographs were mounted on green and black backgrounds. All work was further enhanced by spotlights. I wish for all my future exhibitions to be handled with such sensitivity, diligence and good taste.
It was an honor and a great pleasure for me to be a part of Mara’ee Show in the Kingdom of Bahrain.
