Doha March 1, 2012: Doha-based artist Jennifer Pinder’s stunning artworks have received international acclaim at one of the art world’s most exclusive commercial galleries.

Agora Gallery, based in New York but with galleries across the United States, has selected Ms Pinder’s work from thousands of others to be represented by them and hosted her first North American exhibition in February 2012 to great acclaim. Ms Pinder’s exhibition runs two weeks at the gallery’s space and is a recognition of the technical and artistic brilliance of Ms Pinder’s color and texture saturated pieces and will see four of her pieces on display in the gallery’s Chelsea, New York art space.

Up until her move to Qatar in late 2009, Ms Pinder enjoyed a long standing association with the prestigious Australian gallery, the Libby Edwards Galleries (Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane) exhibiting her works as well as handling commissions for high profile clients. In January 2011, Ms Pinder held her first Middle East-based exhibition, “Unique Perspectives” at the art space at the Grand Hyatt Doha. The exhibition opening drew the biggest crowd ever at the space with a host of dignitaries in attendance.

In April 2012, Ms Pinder’s works will be shown at the Trevisan International Art exhibition. The show, “Liberated Dreams” is the Italian gallery’s annual International Art Exhibition and will be held at the Imbarcadero Rooms of the beautiful Estense Castle of Ferrara in Northern Italy.

After establishing herself as an artistic force internationally, Ms Pinder brings her unique perspective to her home in Qatar and has drawn on her reaction to the landscape and architecture that surrounds her for her most recent works. Her medium is oil on canvas and are large scale pieces stretching 150cms by 150cms are drenched in color and texture and they current hang in some of Doha’s finest homes.

“This is a remarkable opportunity for me to expose my works to a broader audience in the US and Europe,” Ms Pinder said. “Agora Gallery has represented some of the most significant contemporary artists since it opened its doors in 1994 and it’s an honor for me to included in this list and it is also significant for me to have this kind of high level representation in the US. “Ms Pinder is currently working on pieces for a new exhibition scheduled for late 2012 here in Doha.
