Around the galleries

THE DOROUB Gallery in Garden City hosts a joint exhibition of artists Mohamed Mandour and Galal El-Husseiny’s latest creations. Mandour’s pottery has found its way from the simple workshops of Fakhariya to the most sophisticated exhibition spaces. With every exhibition, though, he takes the art of pottery a step further, and the present case is no exception. El-Husseiny’s trademark watercolours, too, display a further development in the artist’s career. His countryside scenes now emerge in a more immediate way. Though the figures painted are at rest, for example, they reveal a great deal of dynamic energy in the way they are rendered. Altogether the exhibition offers the gallery goer a rich and rewarding experience.
