Where is this? - #17

If you think you know where it is (or you want to guess) click on comments. Click on the picture to see an enlarged image.

The pictures for the game 'Where is this?' have all been taken from someplace in Libya and are in an area open to the public. The prize for the winner will be the satisfaction of knowing that you had the right answer! - I'll let you know who the winner is.

This will be my first try in this competition, ok I think this is the entrance gate of Dar Al founon (the House of Art) from inside, it is situated in what we call Triq Al Seka (7th of November street), hope I am right.

Correct! Congratulations Ghazi!

I went this morning to The Art House with two of my daughters and my friend Tara. She'd never been there before. The Art House sells art supplies and does picture framing and also sells artwork and signed prints done by Libyan artists. Upstairs is an architect's office and on the lower level is an art gallery that hosts a changing display of local art. The staff is helpful and are available to answer any questions visitors might have.

The only problem is that the road it is located on is very busy and if you don't know exactly what you are looking for you will probably just drive right by. This is the sign on the wall outside.

We had a nice visit. There was a brochure available (in both English and Arabic) of the artists being shown in the gallery but my children took off with it to look at the pictures and now it's disappeared. I can't remember the name of the artists. You'll just have to visit The Art House and have a look yourself.

  5. ARe you planning to buy some good art work for the farm?
    I´m looking out for good art these days, too, but hate to pay for the glass and frames.
    Especially the picture with the Libyans gathering around each other looks great and would fit my wall, did I have the possibility.
    Show us what you bought!
