The free exhibition will feature 2D and 3D works by eight artists, including still life drawings, colourful landscape paintings, textured trees, leaves and fruits, and handcrafted clay objects.

Curator Olcay Morreale said: "The Texture of Life exhibition has been installed to celebrate and appreciate living in a cohesive community like this one; it enriches people's qualities of life through visual arts.

"The series of art workshops have been cultivated by the participants' artistic talents to be more intuitive and to drive their basic human needs of curiosity, self-expression and creativity in visual arts."
