Speaking on the occasion, the General Manger of the cultural Village Foundation-Katara, HE.

The cultural, artistic, and national messages of Katara, building on a deeply-rooted tradition, all are aimed at supporting the artistic Qatari talent, in terms of recognition, appreciation and meeting financial needs by artists."

"Once again, I'm glad to see Katara presenting to its public a new inspiring exhibition by giving the opportunity to a Qatari creative artist to expose her artworks and share her artistic and cultural vision." Added Dr. Al Sulaiti.                     

Maryam Al-Sulaiti's exhibition displays paintings that celebrate beauty from Qatar and around the world, through initiating artistic dialogue with touristic destinations from Souq Waqef in Qatar to the city of Mostar and its old bridge in Bosnia, and the castles of Norway. From the lakes and lochs in Britain to the Sultan Abdul Hamid Palace in Turkey, and the breathtaking beauty of Maldives.

For her part, artist Maryam Al-Sulaiti said:" A Transparent Look exhibition took 9 years to be accomplished, and it portrays a mix between the transparent beauty of landscapes and architecture and the purity of water colors".

Maryam Al-Sulaiti is a holder of a BA in Art Education since 1992 and worked as a teacher of art. She took part in several general art exhibitions and is one of the contributors and organizers of the Qatari free art workshops platform.​
