A new art exhibition commemorating the 550th anniversary of the birth of Guru Nanak Dev Ji has opened in the West Midlands.

Coming Home by Artistic Seva is just one of the exhibits on display

550 Years of Guru Nanak Dev Ji is a free exhibition which will feature emerging and established artists works from both the UK and worldwide.

The exhibition, which is being delivered and curated by creative organisation Art Sikh, showcases a variety of contemporary and traditional artworks depicting portraits of the founder of the Sikh religion to stir the senses and evoke, inspire and resonate with visitors in support of the celebrations that have been ongoing.

The exhibition at the Library of Birmingham Cafe also aims to celebrate the diversity of the region, which has the second largest number of British Sikhs in the country, by providing an educational and visual experience on British Sikh Heritage and inviting all religion, belief and ethnic groups to participate in this celebration with the Sikh community.

The artists featured have drawn from the humanitarian teachings of Guru Nanak Dev Ji and been inspired by the Sikh concept of oneness to artistically create their pieces featuring the founder of the Sikh faith.

The exhibition runs until Friday, January 30 from 11am to 5pm, Monday to Saturday, at Library of Birmingham Cafe, Mezzanine, Centenary Square, Birmingham.
