Wadi Finan For Arts in Abu Dhabi

If you are looking for really great art for your house or office that won't break the bank, head down to the exhibition GEMS OF THE MIDDLE EAST. In co-ordination with the spouse of the Jordanian Ambassador to Abu-dhabi, Mrs.Jathal Al Hindwai, Al Siwar Events brings you WADI FINAN ART GALLERY from Jordan. 

Showcasing art by emerging and up and coming artists from the Middle East, you are going to find treasures here. The BEST part about this exhibition is that all of the pieces are very affordable and they are all original prints so no-one one will have the same painting as you.

Here is a little background of the artists whose works will be showcased
