Three female artists held an exhibition in the capital city of western Herat province to display their artwork.
These young female artists said they wanted to give a positive motivation to the Afghan women and that women and girls should be active in the society.
“I want to motivate those who are at home and don’t want to do activities,” said Raufa Shams, an organizer of the exhibition.
At least 70 works were displayed at this exhibit.
“There are a lot of girls and women who are silent now and don’t have the courage to say something. We wanted to present their voice through our work,’ said Rozita Mohammadi, an organizer.
The exhibition is the first to be held by female artists in Herat city since the fall of the former government.
The visitors welcomed the exhibition.
“I call on the people to come here and see the exhibition. Their visit will also boost the motivation of these artists,” said Nazila Khadmi, a visitor.
Provincial officials said that they will support the art field in the country.
“The Ministry of Information and Culture supports the artists and those who have artistic skills,” said Naeemul Haq Haqqni, the head of Information and Culture of Herat.
The exhibition will be open for a period of eight days. The three young artists said that they are hoping to bring happiness to the faces of the citizens by holding such an exhibit.
