Liquid Gold

The 4th consecutive year of another hugely successful RAK Fine Art Festival opened at the Banyan Tree on the 19 of February 2016.  I was fortunate enough to have one of my photographs, titled “Liquid Gold” selected for the exhibition.

Opening night was held in a magical setting filled with art, all the who’s who in Ras al Khaimah, ambassadors from USA and Australia, and the artists all in glamorous ball gowns and black ties….

The 20th was the opening of the art exhibition at the Ras Al Khaimah Museum and that night ended with the awards night. The courtyard of the museum is a perfect setting to display all the art work, photographs, and sculptures. The short films that were selected were shown that night at the prize giving which was held in the auditorium of the RAK Chamber of Commerce

It was such an honour to have one of my photographs selected for the exhibition. It is wonderful to see the Al Qasimi Foundation extend its support to the cultural development of the Emirate, and creating such a wonderful opportunity for artists of all genres to showcase their work.
