Zen Foto Gallery is pleased to present Kanaria’s painting exhibition “Valley of Love” from August 7th to August 22nd.

Warm, gentle breezes blow in the valley of love.
Flowers sway gently and all creatures celebrate the joy to be alive,
Echoing in a chorus of love.

—— Kanaria, June 2020

The exhibition will include a number of her latest oil paintings, pottery works, and watercolour paintings.
