Exhibition of Artwork from PakistanImage from the Pakistan exhibition

Friday 9th of May 2014

Prestigious Exhibition of Art from Pakistan hosted at Wheelwright Centre Dewsbury.

Batley School of Art is to host an exciting exhibition of Art from eminent artists from Pakistan on the weekend of October 18th & 19th.

The exhibition of work is the result of the dream and hard work of a local Pharmacist, Mohammed Hussain. His dream was to bring the work of artists from Pakistan and to see the event happen at the Wheelwright Centre, in Dewsbury.

Work is being flown in from Pakistan and features the work of graduate artists from the National College of Arts in Lahore; work by fashion graduates from the Pakistan Institute of Fashion Design and the National Textile University in Faisalabad.

This is the first time Batley School of Art has hosted such an event for external artists and it will complement the work carried out by current students studying at the College.

The work displayed at the exhibition will explore the culture, heritage, people and religion through a series of insightful expressions and musings captured in breath-taking brushstrokes, colours, photographs and fashion.

We invite you to come and discover Pakistan through a stunning display of work and leave discovering yourselves.

Work at the exhibition will be on sale at the event.

Keep watching for more news on this innovative event.
