Since 2000, the Gallery Al-Quds has been the sole, full-time area showcase for the exhibition of contemporary art by Arab-American and Arab artists. The Gallery specializes in the work of Palestinian artists, with an additional emphasis on the work of contemporary artists whose art centers on issues of the Arab and Islamic world. The gallery exhibits work in a full range of media including painting, sculpture, photography, film and mixed media.
Gallery Al-Quds invites you to the exhibition
“Sumoud and Todamon”
Artist, calligrapher and jeweler Katie Miranda’s paintings explore moments of sumoud (steadfastness) and todamon (solidarity). In this exhibition she interprets iconic Western artworks through the lens of Palestinian struggle, such as Leonardo DaVinci’s Salvator Mundi (recently purchased for $450 million by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman). Landscapes of a multi-faith Jerusalem and hopes calligraphed on jewelry contrast with memorials to the dead in her multifaceted art practice.
Reception to meet the artist, Friday, October 11 6:00—8:00 p.m.
