Double Exhibition "In the Picture" with Paintings by Abdullah Ali Butler and Sculptures by Mahmoud Mokhtar

From 17 December 2021 to 10 January 2022.

It's not just an exhibition, it's also a 6-day art event from the 7th of December until the opening of the exhibition on the 17th of December during which Abdullah Ali Butler made a painting into which the viewer will climb. The title is "In the Picture" because you can actually be inside the painting. Abdullah's co-exhibitor Mahmoud Mokhtar created sculptures for this piece. Besides that, there are many more works including a new series called "My Tomb Paintings", which draws from the Book of the Dead.

Impressions of the "In the Picture" exhibition opening



"Vernissage at the Nun Gallery in Ramla, Luxor.... Fascinating works created by Abdullah Ali Butler.... Having a look is a MUST....., same for the sculptures by Mahmoud Mokhtar " - Ingrid Leyla

"Meine Glückwünsche für die stilvolle Kunst Galerie. Das hat bitter gefehlt, als ich noch in Luxor lebte. Viel Erfolg!" - Nicole Debert

"Es ist, als ob man auf ein Boot steigt und dann umgeben wird von einer schönen Landschaft, um dann zur himmlischen Ferne zu gelangen." - Neeltje van der Pol

"Wonderful opening!" - Alice Arts

"A thousand congratulations for the great exhibition! The work is excellent, the best of the great sculptor Mahmoud Mokhtar and artist Mark Butler. Best luck!" - Eman Ahmed

"What a wonderful gallery filled with special art! Well done all of you!" - Jane Adams

"How lucky I am to have Nun Art Gallery and Wannas Restaurant in my neighborhood! A place not only to look at art or eat delicious food but as well a great location where people meet up and discuss the world over a tea or coffee. Love the positive atmosphere and sounds: some music, bursting wood in the fire, people talking. Tonight I finally saw the latest exhibition: Paintings from Abdullah Ali Butler and sculptures from Mahmoud Mokhtar. A special experience definitely was the 'canvas room'. A whole room covered in canvas and painted. You enter through a split in the canvas and find yourself in the painting. Try it out and have a great time!" - Katrin Aleff
