Seven un­miss­able art events to at­tend this month

/ EX­HI­BI­TIONS/ The Si­lence Be­tween Us

This is the first solo pre­sen­ta­tion of Saudi artist Dana Awartani’s work in the Mid­dle East and is well worth a visit. Awartani is in­ter­ested in tra­di­tional tech­niques and Is­lamic mo­tifs but she ren­ders them in re­fresh­ingly con­tem­po­rary ways us­ing ma­te­rial such as em­broi­dery, wood-work and glass. There is also a great deal of re­search be­hind each piece mak­ing them in­for­ma­tive as well as beau­ti­ful. Un­til Fe­bru­ary 18

Maraya Art Cen­tre, Al Qasba, Al Taawun Road, Shar­jah, Sat to Thur, 10am to 7pm. (06) 5566555. Taxi: Al Qasba.
