COUNTY HALL, BBC2
Islamic Art exhibition as covered by BBC2's Desi DNA programme.
EMERALD since its inception has been providing a platform for ARTISTS to raise their profile at EMERALD events and to engage with the Muslim professional audience, CREATIVELY.
EMERALD has showcased talent from performing artists (Actors, MCs, Singers, Comedians) in addition to conventional Artists (traditional and contemporary work) whose work have been featured in Gallery-based events. Our inaugural Gallery event was in August 2006 at the County Hall Gallery, which featured a number of British Muslim Artists (event was featured in BBC2's Desi DNA programme) , with disciplines ranging from contemporary and traditional calligraphy, through to geometric-shape influences and abstract art in a wide range of medium. We have also featured works from artists outside the UK, including Peter Gould (Australia).
