The exhibition “Ink and Gold” depicted the Arabic gilded calligraphy in an astonishing way to showcase the durability and beauty of the Arabic letters and Islamic decoration with 12 different paintings that included some verses of the Holy Quran. The gilding method was used by Muslim artists and was a popular way of decorating calligraphy on walls. Dr Al Sulaiti described the two exhibitions as a unique experience for the young women artists who presented a very significant art in Islamic history which would raise awareness among people about the beauty of Islam and the meaning of tolerance and peace.

Both exhibitions will run until March 28 at buildings 22 and 5.
