The "Expert Art Center" displayed seventy pieces of art in Kabul.
Displaying the artwork of women, according to the exhibition's organizers, is essential for the development of the nation's culture and art.
Some of the participants in the exhibition are female students above sixth grade who turned to painting after being denied an education.
"When our schools closed, we sought to expose our art to people in another way--the art of painting and drawing," said Zainab, a painter.
"The arts sector needs support. We ask the current administration to work with and support us in the arts," stated painter Ramin.
The exhibition's goal, according to Mohammad Sami Sirat, director of the Expert Art Center, is to inspire women and promote painting culture.
"This exhibition is being held to highlight artistic abilities, particularly those of females, while schools are closed. They are looking for both education and the arts. Fortunately, they learn quickly. The purpose of this exhibition was to highlight their creativity and the works they produced,” said Sirat.
Many female students have turned to artistic endeavours or handicrafts since the closing of girls' schools above sixth grade.
