ARTHALL GALLERY

About us

“Let art find you” is Arthall motto’s to bring art to a wider audience that traditionally has not been included in the art scene. Arthall focused on selling and promoting contemporary and modern art, both local and international. We want to present groundbreaking art, avant-garde, ironic and provocative in the Maltese Islands. Not just to entertain or confirm what we already know; we want to discover new horizons and possibilities; we want to be a critic of what is given to us in our society. The ultimate aim is to offer a space for the Arts: bringing creative initiatives together to enable discussion and exchange of ideas. Philosophy, music, poetry, literature and the Art in all its forms are welcome in our project in order to challenge new ways of creating, understanding, and expressing our so-called “reality”.  The Arthall director, Marta Obiols Fornell, received the Gozo’s Best Female Entrepreneur of the year 2019 Award!
