Charged by the works of several artists and collectively put together by Feryal Ali Gauhar, “Pehla Qadam” opened in Studio Seven gallery on the 24th of September, 2019.
The show is backed by the initiative of the ‘Cancer Care Hospital’ and ‘Palliative Care Center’, aimed at raising donations through the artworks sale, the proceeds of which will be dedicated to purchasing mobile units that provide screenings for women in Sindh and Balochistan. Hence, every purchase one makes will directly lead to saving lives, which might as well be the first step one can make to fight this festering miscreation we know as cancer, just as the title alludes to.
These collections of artworks are put together by Feryal Ali Gauhar, donated by Ahmed Zoay, Ejaz Malik, Iqbal Hussain, Jamal Shah, Kaleem Khan, Mugheez Riaz, Naseebullah Khan, Naela Amir, Rashid Maqbool, R.M Naeem, Zahid Mayo. The works will also aim to pay tribute to said artists and their invaluable contribution.
