The Jerusalem Fund Gallery and the Iraqi Cultural Society invite you to view the exhibit of new paintings by Iraqi artist, Leila Kubba, entitled “New Beginnings.”  Kubba was born and educated in Iraq. She studied at the Manchester College of Art and Architecture and the Corcoran College of Art + Design. She has exhibited widely in the United States and across the world. Her works are in public and private collections, including the Abu Dhabi Cultural Center, the National Gallery of Jordan and the British Museum. Her latest series, inspired by a recent visit to Iraq, reflects on the uncertainty that lies ahead and the women who bear the fragments of Iraq’s past, present and future.
