The renowned Jeddah Art Studio inaugurates its 16th consecutive annual exhibition on January 22nd. It will run for an entire month. The opening ceremony will be hosted by Najoud Talal Zahid.

Hisham Qandeel, the director of the studio, highlights the significance of the “A Painting in Every Home” exhibition, a major Arab art event showcasing small-sized paintings. This year, over 100 Saudi and Arab artists actively contribute, marking the exhibition’s primary goal to spread visual arts within households and communities, allowing art enthusiasts to acquire distinctive pieces from esteemed artists at affordable prices.

Emphasizing the exhibition’s history of substantial success, Qandeel notes its ability to attract elite artists from across the Arab world.
