The 90 days long exhibition is on its final lap as 21st December 2019 also witnessed the 'Meet and Greet' session wherein the art enthusiasts were given opportunitiesto meet the artists and to know each artist personally and learn more about their inspiring routine which has attracted global attention.

Mr. Peter Gressman having decades long of experience in art has always been an inspiring personality and his presence in more than 200 events, either group or solo exhibitions, organized by various galleries in 2019 across the emirate shows his commitment and dedication towards art and artists. Shows curated by Peter Gressman are always welcomed by the art industry with huge expectations and he always ensures his events live up to the expectations of the industry as each and every gathering possesses a unique jewel of recognition. IlTelivisionario2 got the opportunity to spend some time with Peter and he says "It was indeed a great gathering on the opening day and moreover we have observed large number of visitors during these periods which is very satisfying. There were multiple discussions with six participating artists by which I studied their artworks and the stories that has inspired them to create beautiful works and for me, as a curator it's much required to go through this process which will help me to design the layouts with the seriousness it deserves. When I'm asked to curate a show, I organize everything from the start, it means a lot of meetings (especially at a show with several artists, like "BELIEVE in art across generations") Selection of artists and artworks are included. Of course, just as the maintenance of the entire preparation time (up to 3 months), invitation of the guests to the opening, placing the works of art and much more and all within the opening night, the work does not end and I feel, as curator, committed to the artists and the artworks. While this exhibition concludes in January 2020, there are more projects on card which will be organized at various venues."
