hivani Jadeja, man­ager of Dubai’s old­est fine art gallery, The Ma­jlis, which cel­e­brated 25 years since it first opened in a villa in Dubai’s Al Fahidi His­tor­i­cal Dis­trict, says, “The 25th ex­hi­bi­tion [fea­tur­ing 150 works all 25x25cm in size] was a great suc­cess, at­tract­ing lots of vis­i­tors, in­ter­est and sales. The owner of the gallery, Ali­son Collins, didn’t an­tic­i­pated the gallery would be such a suc­cess. We haven’t got ex­act fig­ures as yet but we did have artists com­ing from all over the world – like John Har­ris from Eng­land and Mustafa Ali from Syria – to look at the work. The Fri­day ar­ti­cle was a huge boost. The week­end it ran our vis­i­tor num­bers vir­tu­ally dou­bled.” Find the full story at http://bit. ly/13R3dZj
