Malta Independent - - LIFESTYLE & CULTURE -

The Sig­giewi Her­itage Foun­da­tion is or­ga­niz­ing an art ex­hi­bi­tion at the me­dieval chapel ded­i­cated to the As­sump­tion of Our Lady at the ham­let of HalXluq within the lim­its of Sig­giewi.

Some of Malta’s main artists will be ex­hibit­ing art works deal­ing mainly with the theme Sig­giewi and its en­vi­rons. Part of the art sales pro­ceeds will be do­nated to the Foun­da­tion for the restora­tion of chapels, mon­u­ments and works of arts form­ing part of the rich cul­tural her­itage found within the parish of Sig­giewi.

The Hal-Xluq chapel it­self and its artis­tic con­tents were re­stored by funds raised by the pre­de­ces­sor of the Sig­gi­iewi Her­itage Foun­da­tion which then was known as the Kum­mis­sjoni Pat­ri­monju Kul­tur­ali Sig­giewi.

The ex­hi­bi­tion will be in­au­gu­rated by the Ren­dell Mi­callef on Thurs­day 1 De­cem­ber 2016 at 7pm. The ex­hi­bi­tion will then be open to the gen­eral pub­lic on Fri­day be­tween 4.30pm and 7.30pm, Satur­day be­tween 9.30am and 12pm and 2.30pm and 7.30pm, Sun­day be­tween 9.30am and 12pm and be­tween 2pm and 6pm.

The gen­eral pub­lic is in­vited to at­tend and sup­port this ini­tia­tive for a good cause. Also, for those in­ter­ested in nature, the Hal-Xluq en­vi­rons pro­vide one of the pic­turesque coun­try­side ar­eas in Malta worth vis­it­ing.
