The end of the forum included the opening of an art exhibition for the completed works of the participating plastic artists, which included a group of paintings of different sizes occupied with oil colours, a short film about the works and honoring the participating artists.

The plastic artist, Dr. Youssef Al-Boushi, was inspired by the nature of As-Suwayda and its stones, his painting that he executed in acrylic near the Habran Dam and called it inspired by the Habran Dam, and it reflects the aesthetics of both time and place in this region according to the artist’s vision.
The plastic artist Ayman Fadda Radwan worked in his painting on the human face and the disparity between sad and happy looks, while the artist Safaa Bunduq embodied her painting with acrylic technology and in an expressive style, the feelings of women and the pain they face, adding symbols that suggest giving, cruelty and altruism.
The artist Bassam Abu Zeidan also embodied in his work, which he called "Bound Women", the injustice suffered by women in society, using symbols and human forms to convey the connotations of his idea.
