MUSCAT – On the occasion of International Artist Day, 25th October 2021, RAY International Group of Companies held an ‘Art Fair’ in the categories of Arts – painting and drawing; Music – instrumental and singing.
Caught up in the stressful routine of work, timelines and targets compounded by the uncertainty of Covid – 19, the Art Fair came at the right moment as a stress buster, a channel for catharsis to vent out stress and to achieve better mental health and overall wellness.
The fair was graced by the sterling presence of Safiya Al Bahlani, renowned artist from Oman. She evaluated each painting for its merit and aesthetic appeal and how best the artwork conveyed the concept ‘Art is important for Mental Health’.
Music performances were evaluated by Kawther Al Kharusi based on the choice of music and rendition by the artists.
The winners were felicitated by the Group CEO Abdulrazzak Al Zakwani. On the occasion, he emphasised on the need to lead a balanced life, pursuing talents and passion and not just career goals while enjoying all the flavours of life.
