The "Golden Gifts" exhibition was opened on Tuesday, 8 December 2020 by artist Ahmed el-Shafei, Prof Emad Abu Zaid and Prof Hany Rizk from the Helwan University. We felt greatly honoured by the presence of the renowned professors and artists of the 13th Luxor International Painting Symposium and the dean, the doctors and artists of Luxor's Academy of Fine Arts. Also, after the long summer hiatus, it was fantastic to gather again for art and meet friends.

"Opening evening of a great exhibition with paintings of AHMED EL-SHAFEI.... So good to meet people again who appreciate art and are happy to spend time looking at the paintings and then sit down outside to discuss their experience of these paintings.... Life has come back to the West Bank.... and more specifically in Ramla! I spent such an interesting evening... Thank you Nun Art Gallery for daring to create an event like this one again in the present situation. As an added bonus, we also had a chance to meet the artists attending the 13th Luxor International Painting Symposium who were also present, Ahmed El-Shafei being one of them ...." - Ingrid Leyla
