Young Artists Draw Crowds

Our exhibitions are excellent and going well in the Garden of Peace and Hope. In recent months, I had good exhibitions that included paintings, theater, handicrafts, and a fashion show with models. One event had to be postponed a week, but it was a wonderful exhibition with so many visitors that it was extended two more days so that all the villagers could visit. The next exhibition was in mid-December. On this day, all the paintings on public display were works by a very young girl who has waited for a long time to be showcased in the Garden of Peace and Hope. This was also an enjoyable exhibit that included a modeled fashion show and live music presented by young artists.


One challenge I am dealing with is the extended stay of some of the gallery staff in our offices. The gallery building has been repaired, but those who have not moved back say they don’t have enough space for all their staff members inside their building and that the majority of the rooms were filled with paintings. I scheduled two meeting times with a ministry official, but the minister was out of the country. I hope I can successfully meet with one of the officials.


Thank you!
