THE impact of contemporary art practices on classical drawing will be explored in an art exhibition opening this weekend at World Beat Fitness CafŽ, Janabiya.
The exhibition, Extinction, is a selection of drawings by award-winning Bahraini artist Mariam Haji Al Janahi which will open on Saturday from 4pm to 6pm.
Ms Al Janahi is interested in exploring the impact of contemporary art practices on classical drawing, and is curious as to whether it is contributing to the extinction of drawing.
In her work, she plays with the idea of a hyper-realistic drawing and has the ability to record and archive photographs in a drawing form.
She has a degree in fine arts and has been involved in festivals and biennials.
She has given lectures in schools and universities in Bahrain.
The exhibition will continue until May 31 and the cafŽ is open from 8am to 1pm and 4pm to 8pm.
