Visit to the German Encounters Exhibition held in Doha Fire Station

I can’t remember the last time I went to an art gallery, but I think it was a school trip a German Encounters Exhibitionlong, long time ago. I had mixed feelings about attending this German Encounters exhibition because I’m not much of an artie, and I wasn’t sure if I would find a German exhibition particularly interesting. However after just 45 minuets of walking around the exhibits I was a total convert. A lot of the abstract paintings didn’t float my boat because well it’s just not my thing. But the photography was really, really outstanding and inspiring.

I enjoyed this guided tour as a part of the Honorary Cultural Ambassador training program so much, that I will be returning to the Fire Station independently next Thursday for the once a year Open Studio Night.

Open Studio Night at The Fire Station

There are 20 studios containing 20 different artists of varying types within the Fire Station. And on just one night a year they have an open evening where you can visit the artists in their studios to see what they are up to and have a chat with them.

Just being in the Fire Station itself, without even seeing an exhibition is a lovely way to spend time. It’s a peaceful place with much to see. If you like taking photo’s this is a fabulous place for you to get some quality snaps.

All the images posted in this article were taken on my Galaxy S7 Edge. I will need to go back with my Sony a7 to get some better photos in and around the Fire Station soon.
