The Whiskey Spot

Description

A solo exhibit of new artwork created by Dallas-based contemporary artist, Marian Mekhail, celebrating her Egyptian roots. Attendees at the exhibit can expect to go on a journey with Mekhail's new works, which marry passages from the book "The Alchemist" with stories of ancient Egyptian figures. These works pay tribute to her Egyptian culture, while subverting ancient mythology and symbolism to suit a modern feminist gaze, and a timely reflection of how society is re-examining commonly held gender roles. Her larger than life paintings depict colorful characters, featuring poignant messages surrounding faith, love, and deep self-reflection. In partnership with Jim Beam. Complimentary drinks provided by: Maker's Mark, Tres Generaciones Tequila, and Roku Japanese Gin. Private showings are available November 14 by appointment only.
