The Young Emerging Artist’s Prize 2022, Midterm exhibition “We are center of the Union: Reflection on self-portraits”

Stal Gallery’s Young Emerging Artist’s Prize (YEAP) initiated and mentored by the internationally known Omani artist Hassan Al Meer - has become a unique platform for art making since 2015. This program has been the first of its kind in Oman supporting a new generation of rising artists.

The program provides access for professional skills development, online profiling, usage of multimedia technology and displaying a wider presentation of the visual arts. This contest has grown to become the most anticipated art program of Oman at a nonprofit art gallery Stal - the Alserkal Group’s first cultural project in the Sultanate of Oman.
