Hamid Ayoub invites you to the vernissage of his solo art exhibition, which will take place on Sunday, October 23, 2016 from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm at the Trinity Gallery - Salon A, The Shenkman Arts Centre. 

Entitled Contemplation On Colour’s Conversation, the exhibition showcases Hamid's combination of palette knife techniques and explores the interaction of the properties of colour – hue, value, density – in an abstracted visual conversation. Brush and palette knife shape the spontaneous flow of acrylic paint in a rhythmic harmony, symbolically suggesting human interaction.

Light refreshments will be served.  The exhibition will run from Oct 20 to Nov 22, 2016.
