French Embassy Holds Art Exhibition

The Cercle Franchophone(CFK) of the French Embassy of Kuwait held an exhibit of artwork by American University of Kuwait students, alumni and faculty titled 'B307' from May 9th until May 23rd at the Library of the French Embassy. The opening reception was held on Saturday May 9th from 11 am until 1 pm. B307 is a rehearsal for a larger exhibit of similar artworks at Dubai's Opera Gallery this summer. Professor Dominique Malarde, the organizer of both exhibitions in Kuwait and Dubai said, 'What a wonderful adventure to accompany a young generation of Art students from the American University of Kuwait through a journey of creativity.' She added that, 'Wherever we are, Art transcends the barriers of culture, languages, and religions.' Professor William Andersen, who offered additional help organizing the exhibit and worked personally with the students to develop their artwork said, 'The exhibits pushed the students to work at a professional level and will give them the opportunity to display their work out in the real world.' The exhibit was attended by French Ambassador Jean-Rene Gettan and his spouse Sophie Gettan, Cultural Attache Oliver Desseez, Acting Public Affairs Officer from the U.S. Embassy Pamela G. Mills, Cercle Francophone representatives Zaida Slaiman and Alex d'Souza, as well as members of the AUK community and their families.
