Jeddah: Siasat Art Gallery to organize Islamic Calligraphy Exhibition in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia from 30th March to 1st, April, 2017 at Consulate General of India, Jeddah.

Mir Gazanfar Ali Zaki General Secretary Saudi Indian Business Network (SIBN) called on H.E. Mohammed Noor Rahman Sheikh Consul General of India in Jeddah to discuss the plan. He also handed over a Calligraphic Artifact on behalf of Siasat Art Gallery to him.

The exhibition is expected to showcase hundreds of artifacts which includes the artwork of renowned artists Mr. Nayeem Saberi, Mr. Faheem Saberi, canvas painting of Mr. Lateef Farooqui, Embroidery work of Mr. Naseer Sultan, Wooden art of Mr. Md. Mazheruddin.

The art of calligraphy is among the trough struck arts dying out at double the pace of evolution of multi-media.

The idea is to bring calligraphy back to life and simultaneously generate employment. The slum dwelling ladies are being guided and given opportunity of coming up with innovative ways of calligraphy with their wit and will and thus the skill has made the Art take a fresh gasp.
