Oil and acrylic paintings on canvas, by the artist Rimon Badin

Born in 1958 and raised in Akko, to a family whose originally from the village of Kfar Bar'am in the Galilee. Discovered his talent at a relatively late age and focused on realistic and abstract plastic arts, relying on individual learning, diligence, and love of art.

Since then, his art has been displayed in many exhibitions in Israel and abroad, among others at the "Masraheed" Festival in Akko, the "Art and Beauty" Festival in Jordan, and the "Akko Through the Eyes of Painters" festival.

In the current exhibition, Badin presents his paintings on diverse subjects, most of them in acrylic colors and some painted in oil.

What does a dream come true to look like? Noor Abu-Doula dreamed of opening a café house that would combine good food with art workshops and exhibitions of young artists. 

Recently, after she completed her studies at the Center in the "Entrepreneurship and Management of a Tourism Business vocational training she opened "Kofi Pan" in an ancient building in the village of Yarka.

“I am attracted to beautiful places with a rich cultural background, because you will get a chance to learn about people and bring society to a better place. Studying at A-CAT gave me the tools to earn a job, and the courage to make my dream come true."
