To express appreciation of HMC medical staff and their efforts in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, AlHosh Art Gallery has donated 30 paintings depicting Qatar’s heritage, to be displayed at all Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC) facilities.
HMC Chief Communications Officer Ali Al Khater received the paintings, while welcoming the owner of AlHosh Art Gallery Ghanem Al Ghanem and a number of AlHosh Gallery members.
Al Khater expressed his appreciation on behalf of HMC, and praised the initiative of AlHosh Gallery and its role in the enrichment of artistic movements in Qatar. He said that HMC values the gallery’s initiative, with the ‘expressive’ paintings reflecting their artistic flair and providing a diverse display in hospitals and health facilities for visitors.
Al Khater, in turn, also presented the members of the AlHosh Gallery delegation with gifts and certificates of appreciations.
Memories in Prints
AlHosh Art Gallery was established in 2008 to contribute to the enrichment of the artistic movement in Qatar. They organise exhibitions and also encourage local artists to reach a wider audience.

Seashore CEO Salem Al Mahanadi, the official sponsor of the gallery, stressed the importance of community participation in supporting artistic movements, encouraging local artists to display their art for the public to enjoy.
Coordinator of the Memories in Prints exhibition at AlHosh Art Gallery, Mohamed Kamal Al Emadi, said the paintings donated to HMC were selected from the original paintings included in the exhibition.
