Taiz – Yemen 02/05/2019
The Culture Office in Taiz, south of Yemen, inaugurated an art gallery at the Fine Arts Hall at Al Taawon Park, in memory of the late Yemeni visual artist Hashem Ali, where the profits of the gallery will be sent to his family members, who have been enduring difficult living conditions following his death in 2009. The gallery was opened in recognition of Hashim Ali’s exceptional leadership and generosity, as he led the visual arts movement in Yemen. The gallery, which is scheduled to take place from April 28 to May 5, includes a public auction for selling 60 paintings.
