THE FOLLY OF COLOUR
Galerie Pompom February 10 to March 14, 2021
Nuha Saad was pleased to present her first exhibition as a represented artist with Galerie Pompom in February this year. In the exhibition The Folly of Colour, eastern forms bump up against the hard geometries of minimalist and formalist tendencies alike, but in a gentle way. One side supports the other, completes it and balances it formally. (Michele Beevors, Principal Lecturer: Sculpture and Ceramics, Dunedin School of Art, Otago Polytechnic)

EXCITING AUSTRALIAN ART TO BUY FOR YOUR HOME
By Amy Campbell, The Australian, 13 January 2021
Nuha Saad was delighted to be included in the article Exciting Australian art to buy for your home by Amy Campbell.
50 works by 50 artists … Presenting The Australian’s inaugural summer exhibition, a showcase of the most exciting young Australian artists working today.
Life has changed. But the desire to surround ourselves with beauty and creativity endures, and has arguably deepened. And while accessing fine art in traditional ways – chiefly, visiting galleries here and abroad – has been disrupted, for many involved in this industry it has been a period of innovation that has spurred new and inclusive ways of viewing, understanding and buying art.
It’s this moment of evolution that has inspired The Australian’s Summer Exhibition — a showcase of sculptures, paintings, photographs and works on paper. Beautiful to look at, it’s a celebration of some of the best and brightest artists working today. Every work included is also for sale. All 50 pieces have been selected because they signify what’s happening in Australian art and culture right now.

STOPPING BY THE COLOUR WHEEL (A Fabulation of Three Artists)
Grace Cossington Smith Gallery May 15 to June 5 2021
The three artists in the exhibition, Nuha Saad, Sherna Teperson and Elefteria Vlavianos, delight in exploring the vibrational and sensate relationships between their works. They play with the syntax and colour relationships arising through both considered juxtaposition and play, revealing surprising relationships between colour and form, as they also consider the material and immaterial porous boundaries within the exhibition.
