Invitation to the opening of the exhibition:
'A trip through Syria and Lebanon’ (13-7 t/m 31-8)
‘Byblos (Lebanon) and Damascus (Syria) are seen as two of the oldest cities in the world.’ Syria and Lebanon both have a rich art history. Not just back then, but the art still has an important position within those countries.
The Arab House of Arts organizes in cooperation with de Bibliotheek aan de Vliet in Rijswijk: ‘A trip through Syria en Lebanon, with paintings by Theo de Feyter’. Theo de Feyter is an art historian and artist by profession. He has made several paintings of Lebanon and Syria that have been exposed worldwide. For an impression: http://www.kcb.nu/kunstenaars/schilders/feyter.html .
On Friday evening 13 July at 19:00 hrs, the opening will take place. De Feyter will give a brief introduction on the background of his paintings and especially the history of art in Lebanon and Syria. After the introduction there will be a possibility to ask questions. A Lebanese musician will play on the Oud (Arabic instrument). This is an example of how the Oud sounds: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4-Wb7V70HkU .
