Chasing the Light
Showcase Gallery and Mestaria are pleased to present a new collection of work by Dubai-based artist Mike Arnold. Arnold returns to his architectural roots, selecting landmark buildings in Dubai and Abu Dhabi and capturing their inner spirit with a focus on reflective light. In this series of large-scale oil paintings, he is now sketching with his brush and embracing a more imperfect finish.
Africa is not a Country
14 March – 14 April
Showcase Gallery presents six major artists from Kenya and Zimbabwe; Ehoodi Kichapi, Helen Teede, Paul Onditi, Peter Ngugi, Richard Kimathi and Wycliffe Mundopa. Each artist plays a major role in the rising tide of art emerging from Africa.
Showcase Gallery has established a venerable reputation with art collectors and designers alike. Focusing on the old-new antithesis, the gallery juxtaposes rare antiques from the region with an arsenal of contemporary art.
