Ambassador of Austria Dr Brigitta Blaha inaugurated an exhibition of contemporary art by two Austrian artists, Anna Stangl and Linda Waber, at the Comsats Art Gallery.

Dr Blaha said it is the artists’ first trip to Pakistan.

“I am impressed by their excitement and enthusiasm to learn more about Pakistan. Linde keeps saying everything is outrageously fascinating, and I am sure we will see some of Pakistan in their future work,” the ambassador said.

Linde is a renowned artist and writer who visited the studios of Pakistani artists.

“It was a wonderful experience to meet the Pakistani artists, especially the famous poet Kishwar Naheed as well as the painters Farrah Mahmood, Zaira Zaka, Sana Arjumand and Raja Changez Sultan,” the artist said.

Anna, who conducted a two-day workshop at the National College of Arts (NCA), Rawalpindi and a one-day workshop on Mixed Media at Comsats, said: “I enjoyed working with the students, both at NCA and Comsats. I found some of them very talented and seriously working towards becoming good artists.”
