Last Chance to See: Kathryn Wilson, 'SATURATE', ends 29 Feb

You still have a few days left to catch 'SATURATE', a solo exhibition of recent works by Dubai-based artist Kathryn Wilson at Fann Designs. You may already by familiar with Kathryn's work as she is an active part of the Dubai art scene and also features in our limited editing art print collection - you can see our available range of her prints here.

Kathryn's new collection of work sees the artist experimenting with oil, acrylic and spray painting techniques to create a visual celebration of light and colour in motion. Visual references derived from the natural world are presented in impressionistic form with a rich and vibrant palette.

The body of work conveys subtle messages of sustainability, well being, destruction and hope. Through the expressive handling of the medium a narrative is presented in a seemingly liquid form. The viewer is encouraged to contemplate a subject matter that plays a vital role in life itself.

The 33rd Emirates Fine Art Society Annual Exhibition

Capsule Arts headed over to Sharjah the other day to catch the Emirates Fine Art Society’s 33rd annual exhibition, the longest-running art event in the UAE. This year's edition includes over 100 artworks by 36 GCC artists, including several artists who feature in our limited edition print collection.

Mahmoud Abbod, Abdelgadir Hassan Elmobark and Mohammad Al Qassab all showcased bold new works, which in the cases of Elmobark and Al Qassab show a new direction in their artistic practice. You can buy affordable art prints of their work from www.capsulearts.com.

The show acts as a significant reference point for the growth of art in the region and each year sees a new curator taking over. This year, it is the Emirati artist and gallery owner Mattar Bin Lahej.

See some of the highlights in the picture gallery below. The exhibition runs until April 8 at Sharjah Art Museum.
