How appropriate, I thought, since Gallery Al-Quds will be having a special exhibition in November, in which 40 artists will interpret a Darwish poem.
Paris connections with the Gallery grow ever closer. In October of 2015 we will open a solo exhibition of work by Helen Zughaib in a new partnership with Galerie Mamia Bretesché. Later we will host an exhibition by one of that gallery’s Arab artists here in DC.
I have also forged a partnership with the Institut Culturel Franco-Palestinien (French- Palestinian Cultural Institute), which promotes cultural and artistic achievements of Palestinians to the French. Gallery Al-Quds will be working with them to offer opportunities for our artists to exhibit abroad, as well as to disseminate our exhibitions to their constituents through linking of our websites. I will also be assisting in a prize competition for Palestinian artists under 35.
Now that it is summer, we will be showing an eclectic mix of art for a few weeks, and preparing to open our Fall season with a show of exciting new work by Helen Zughaib. See you soon at the Gallery!
