Fatima - Peace & Love - 2016
Emirates Palace, Abu Dhabi, UAE | 13th - 15th December, 2016
H.H. Sheikha Khawla Bint Ahmed Khalifa Al Suwaidi voyage with calligraphy led to her first exhibition in December 2016. The exhibition “Fatima - The Love & Peace” coincided with The Global Summit of Women Speakers of Parliament.
She presented seven unique works of ink on paper as a tribute to Her Highness Sheikha Fatima Bint Mubarak, Mother of United Arab Emirates. The values emulated through the elegant lines of poetry featured in each work reflects the spirit of the women in emirates.
H.H. describes her experience: “I was encouraged to take this daring step by my husband who believed in me and in my talent. Also by the challenge in itself, and aspirations of self-growth that I always feel with every step I make. I followed the reactions of visitors to the exhibition closely, especially foreign visitors who talked and wrote about my experience in their countries’ art periodicals. Furthermore, I was invited by many art institutions in Italy, France, Germany, and other countries, to exhibit my work and talk about it with their audience.”
