Women in contemporary portraits

“Singular Beauties” on show in the gallery Foresight32,
in Amman, Jordan.

This show was the first solo exhibition in the mid-east for Monique van Steen.

The Foresight gallery invited her after having successfully shown her paintings  in various group-shows during the previous 5 year.
This time, the vernissage under the patronage of his excellency mr. Paul van den IJssel, ambassador of the Netherlands in Jordan, attracted again a lot of press and art-related people.

Roya television made a documentary, interviewing me and Suad, the directrice of the gallery.

During her stay groups of students came to learn about van Steen’s vision on art.
It was stunning to see the eager youngsters suck up all the input they could from this western painter.

Vernissages are great moments for artists, they make us feel like rock stars!
