Free story-telling art exhibition in Dubai’s Ahmedia Art Gallery

Enjoy a cup of Kadak Chai tea while taking in original art in Dubai’s Al Ras


If there’s anything we love more than perusing some art, it’s doing so over a nice cup of tea.

Ahmedia Art Gallery is putting on a unique exhibition from today (Wednesday September 5) until Saturday September 22 where you’ll be able to witness some wonderful works of art while sipping on a mug of Kadak Chai.

“Kadak Chai & I” is a story-telling art exhibition that will showcase inspirations, poetry and art that “inspires conversations”, and for us, tea and a chinwag always go hand-in-hand.

The artists themselves will be present at the opening show on Wednesday September 5, allowing you to hear the inspiration and stories behind each piece.

“We are pleased to host ‘Kadak Chai & I’, a story telling art exhibition which resonates with the essence of our gallery that is based in the historic and cultural district of Al Ras,” said Habib Khan, GM Ahmedia Guest House & Art Gallery.

“This show welcomes everyone to come and we invite art lovers to join the conversation over a hot cup of Kadak chai.”

The exhibition includes stories behind sarees by A.P Laitu, and artworks by Afshan Quraishi, A.P. Laitu, Shital Gusani, Deepa Gopal, Jyoti Sethi, Jack Evangelista, Romy Ravindran, Jehan Ali, Kiran Shah, Karishma Hansen & Masooma Rizvi.

We’re hoping the tea is as strong as the line-up.
Free. Wed Sep 5-Sat Sep 22, 7pm-11.30pm. Ahmedia Art Gallery, Ahmedia Guesthouse, Al Ras,
