“In the midst of these challenging times that we are going through as a country, every member of this community is suffering greatly to earn a living,” said the spokesperson of The LT Gallery to The961.

“One of the many sectors passing through rough times is the once vibrant art scene, which is witnessing an unprecedented free-fall especially by the immigration of promising young artists, collectors, and enthusiasts alike,” she said.

In hopes to support local artists, the -based contemporary art gallery just launched its annual Christmas exhibition “Warm Whispers” to celebrate the artwork of its resident artists as well as many emerging talents.

“As a surviving gallery, we took the responsibility to support local talents by providing them with a platform that will kickstart and grow their careers.”

The LT Gallery – also referred to as ‘Lebanese Talents’ – aims to promote local artists and connect talented individuals of all ages and backgrounds.

For the first time, the gallery is introducing a new artistic medium, the art of photography.

is buzzing with brilliant young photographers. The gallery says it is “determined to propel them in the best direction to help them achieve their ambitions.”

The exhibition features the works of 23-year-old photographers, Léa Skayem and Mayssa Khoury.

In collaboration with Banzy Gallery, the exhibition, Warm Whispers, which opened to the public on December 17th, will continue sharing the “art of Christmas” until January 5th, 2021, from 9 AM to 6 PM.
